Y+ 30: The Future of Digital Communication

Price $10.00 per person
How people will communicate with machines (and vice versa) and with one
another through machines.
As technology continues to evolve and innovate at breakneck speeds,
we've seen human behavior upended in a miraculously short span of time.
Not only has our manner of communication changed, but the very notion of
communication and the communicative abilities available to us are
completely different. How people relate to one another professionally,
socially, and artistically are different than even ten years ago, and
will likely be much different thirty years from now. This panel will
examine these ideas from multiple perspectives, including digital art,
policy, social media, human- computer interfaces, and more. A diverse
collection of technologists will speak on the subject, and there will be
demonstrations of gadgets and interfaces from hack collective
NYCResistor and an art installation piece from digital media institute
Tickets for this event are $10 and will be available through the 92Y Box
Office and Venmo shortly.
NOTE: Twitter will be the platform of choice for receiving audience
questions. If possible, please come with a Twitter-enabled device and
use the #y30 hashtag for all relevant posts.
