    ELECTIVE - An Elective is an intimate masterclass that dives into a single subject led by an expert in that field. Featuring one or two instructors, an Elective consists of a 60-90 minute lesson—complete with reading lists and breakout groups in unique spaces or classroom-like settings.

    In a world readily redefined by evolving technological innovations, humanity will need to adapt to a paradigm partly defined by its own inventions. And as human imperfections are built into the inventions themselves, complications are inevitable. The relationships we have with machines—and machines with us—alter our psychology indelibly. But how?

    Who is this Elective for?

    People curious about how technology—particularly artificial intelligence and robotics—changes our minds, and our perceptions of the world; anyone interested in machine learning, human/machine relationships, and the effect of automation on human existence.

    What will you learn?

    How human interactions with contemporary technology affect their psychology, and how human psychology, in turn, affects the design and function of various modern machines.

    How should you prepare?

    We’ll send you a few reading materials and a syllabus after you register. These are designed to give you a foundation before attendance in order to maximize your learnings.
