Reckless Ideas Logo Lock up

Reckless Ideas is a Generator speaker series that pushes the disciplinary boundaries of technology, humanities, design, and entrepreneurship.

We invite thought leaders from across the state to host conversations about topics such as artificial intelligence, data privacy, and the tension between entrepreneurial creativity and profit. Questions, comments, and community discussion is encouraged.

Reckless Ideas is free and open to the public. Drinks and light fare are served.

This Changes Everything

In 2018, Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google who is not known for hyperbole, said, “A.I. is probably the most important thing humanity has ever worked on.  I think of it as something more profound than electricity or fire.” 

The smart machines are here, ever more so, and there is no going back. Now what? 

What exactly is A.I.?   How does it work? How is it used? And who gets to say? 

Moderated discussion with panelists: Josh Bongard (Professor and Director, UVM’s Morphology, Evolution, and Cognition Lab), Kathryn Cramer (AI researcher, futurist, and former science-fiction editor), and Randall Harp (Associate Professor of Philosophy, UVM)

Sponsored by Hula, UVM, VASE and Vermont Humanities.
