Accelerating Creativity: Reception
Program: Artificial Intelligence & Seeking New Worlds:
Mickey Fisher, creator of the CBS space drama series EXTANT, in conversation with Dr. Mae Jemison and Dr. Karl Aspelund consider the potential of artificial intelligence (AI)—pro and con— in deep space exploration and the enhancement of life on Earth. The underlying theme is the ways in which the interplay between the sciences and art push ideas and advancements in innovation, society and space exploration. The program includes a screening of the short film, Project Kronos, an imaginative documentary that poses an unusual solution to the overwhelming data and computational challenges of interstellar exploration.
Following the formal program, 100YSS will host a Halloween Party, featuring a cosmic trick or treat and scavenger hunt, Miss Q Space Cat, light show, DJ and music, and other activities.
