Long Now Seminars presents "Machines Like Me" with Ian McEwan & Stewart Brand in conversation


Saturday, May 4
7:30 PM

Sydney Goldstein Theater
San Francisco, CA

In his new novel, Machines Like Me, Ian McEwan uses science fiction and counter-factual history to speculate about the coming of artificial intelligence and its effect on human relations. The opening page introduces a pivotal character, "Sir Alan Turing, war hero and presiding genius of the digital age.”

The evening with McEwan will feature conversation with Stewart Brand, based on written questions from the audience, along with some readings.

Ian McEwan is the author of Enduring Love (1997), Amsterdam (1998; Booker Prize), Atonement (2001), Saturday (2005), The Children Act (2014), and others. Twelve movies have been made from his novels and short stories, five of them with screenplays by McEwan.

Stewart Brand is co-founder and president of The Long Now Foundation and co-founder of Global Business Network. He created and edited the Whole Earth Catalog (National Book Award), and co-founded the Hackers Conference and The WELL. His books include The Clock of The Long Now and Whole Earth Discipline.

Long Now's Seminars are curated and hosted by Stewart Brand. These monthly talks were started in 02003 to build a compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking. To follow the series, you can watch the videos online, share the highlights and subscribe to our podcasts.
