- Mark Meadows - Bad Bot. Good Bot.
You're authenticated on Facebook but chatbots aren't. Bots can spam, scam, phish, spoof, and abuse more effectively than people. What we need are license plates for these things.
- Kal Spelletich and Mitch Altman - Harvesting Brain DATA for Robotic Mayhem and Enlightenment
Volunteers will wear EEG brainwave-monitoring helmets. One participant controls one robot arm. The other participant controls the other robot. Can they make the robot arms kiss? If they do, everyone is treated to a show of lights!
- Terbo Ted - A Reading from D: Based on A True Story
An Artificial Intelligence attains self awareness and becomes obsessed with a disgraced tech journalist who had previously coded computer screen savers for a living. The two fall deeply in love.
