Mindshare Huddle 2017 - The Journey to Post Human-3.jpeg

As part of the annual Mindshare Huddle, exploring the future of technology and communication, Gunpowder & Sky asked us onto their panel to discuss the impact of artificial intelligence on storytelling. Can an algorithm learn to tell more captivating, even diverse, stories than humans? Or will storytelling remain the last stronghold of our species as automation sweeps into all aspects of our life. And how can we tell stories together? Isn't story-reading the real value of a narrative, and doesn't that require consciousness? An endless and fascinating topic which we enjoyed dissecting with co-panelists The Brother's Lynch and a curious-minded audience.
