Volumes, the MoMath book club

MoMath favorite Hannah Fry has a new book!  In HELLO WORLD, Hannah explores the role of algorithms in automating important decisions in crime, healthcare, relationships, and money.  Should we entrust ourselves to driverless cars?  Are machines capable of producing great works of art?  How do we balance the importance of making better medical diagnoses with the value of preserving privacy?  Our increasing reliance on pre-defined, quantitative decision-making rules, some of which are invisible to us, raises some interesting questions.  If you enjoyed Hannah’s talk in September and want the opportunity to delve more deeply into some of the issues she exposed, or if you just want to join a provocative discussion of an increasingly serious issues facing society today, you won’t want to miss this event.

Tickets are available online via the registration link below. If available, tickets at the door will incur an additional charge.
