Several times a month I hold Dinner Club at my house in Boston.
Why? Because I want to understand what people are doing in different fields to mine, and how they think about global and societal grand challenges through their work.
The rules are simple- I cook dinner and 6-8 people (preferably who I don't know and who don't know each other) bring themselves, drinks of choice and a topic of conversation that they would like to understand from multiple point of views!
For example: How do we assign value to art? And how can AI quantify such subjective matters? Do autonomous robots without a higher intelligence have a place in our society? How do they compare to autonomous, low intelligence animals?
Dinner Club has some awesome and well-known members, from extreme roboticists to human rights lawyers, venture capitalists to machine learning engineers and psychologists.
If you'd like to join me and a random group for Dinner Club- let me know!
