Event description
Join the MIT Press Bookstore in welcoming the Director of the MIT Media Lab and author Joichi "Joi" Ito, to discuss Resisting Reduction: Designing Our Complex Future with Machines, a book that holds Ito's manifesto about human flourishing in an age of machine intelligence, his argument against industrial optimizations in the pursuit of growth and for the importance of natural complexity and resilience, “Resisting Reduction: A Manifesto,” and nine equally provocative responses, all imagining a future that is not limited by a worldview defined by algorithm.
Joichi "Joi" Ito is Director of the MIT Media Lab, where he is also Professor of the Practice of Media Arts and Sciences. He is the coauthor of Whiplash: How to Survive Our Faster Future.
