Dr. John Gastil – Dungeon Parties and Artificial Intelligence
Dr. John Gastil studies the power of small groups. Tonight we will explore groups like those in the world of fantasy gaming such as “Dungeons and Dragons,” and the small groups working on new digital technologies that tempt us to surrender our individuality to artificial intelligence.
