What is human? What is the future? Only the rest of our lives. When we look at it from that angle, we start to ask some tough questions. How do we want it to be? Who decides? Why is it always “Man vs Machine”? Can we work with technology instead of fearing it? Yes, we can. Science fiction is fast becoming science fact as mankind achieves seemingly superhuman feats like industrializing space and controlling machines with a thought. Amidst this era of startling change, one lesson becomes clear. Stability is no longer the byword for success. What drives innovation is its opposite, the evolution of man and machine in tandem.

Romantic Comedy is a documentary that goes beneath the surface of our favourite films, seeking to better understand the way we view love, relationships and romance. From It Happened One Night to Runaway Bride, from clumsy meet cutes to rain-soaked declarations of love, these films reflect our experiences but are often just as problematic as they are comforting. 
They’re hugely successful and deeply loved by many, but — being frequently dismissed as guilty pleasures — they have often avoided critical analysis. Helped by a chorus of critics, actors and filmmakers, and original songs by her band Summer Camp, director Elizabeth Sankey embarks on a journey of investigation and self-discovery.

The season ticket market is valued at 10 billion annually and growing nationwide. When compared to daily fantasy, valued at 7 billion, and esports valued at less than a billion, why is the season ticket thought to be “dead”? Season tickets allow teams to build new stadiums, secure media rights, drive sponsorship revenue and seen as a benchmark for business performance by owners and leagues executives alike. This session will bring together thought leaders from teams in the NFL, NBA, MLS as well as startups providing technology to the season ticket market to unpack the narrative that season tickets are dead. Speakers will provide data and use cases to illustrate why the season ticket is alive and well with fans and what smart teams are doing to address this underserved revenue channel.

In this lecture, Hans Ulrich Obrist will consider the future of technology, drawing on a wide range of artistic projects to demonstrate the possibilities that artificial intelligence presents for the creation of new art forms. Through seminal projects, such as Billy Klüver’s ‘Experiments for Art and Technology’ (1966) — which brought artists together with engineers — Obrist will highlight the early antecedents of art’s relationship to technology. From the Serpentine Galleries’ digital commission of James Bridle to Sondra Perry’s blue screen technology and 3D avatars to Ian Cheng’s sentient artwork, BOB (Bag of Beliefs), Obrist will propose artists as significant producers of our future realities. The lecture will also address the danger that things may be lost, such as the extinction of cultural phenomena and, with reference to Édouard Glissant, the importance of resisting the homogenizing forces of globalization in our digital age.

Symphonic Cinema is an innovative new format, in which classical music masterpieces are visualized into newly created dramafilms. The films are presented in concert halls around the world with live orchestra. Using customised software, filmmaker Lucas van Woerkum follows the conductor and orchestra’s interpretation, matching tempi and dynamics to create a visual layer as he performs as ‘image soloist’. In contrast to the modern ‘film live in concert’ format, the film responds to the music. Conductors and orchestras are free to perform completely unrestricted and interpret the music as they wish, whilst the audience is drawn even deeper into the stories of the music. Symphonic Cinema debuted in 2010, and in 2015 the first feature-length production (Stravinsky The Firebird) received five sell-out performances at the Royal Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, after which the film toured around the world with highlights in London with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and in Beijing at the National Center for the Performing Arts.

After leaving a major label in 2008, I turned to crowdfunding: first on my own site, then by breaking records on Kickstarter. I built a team and sold albums directly to my community. This session is going to dive deep into the trials and tribulations, and hidden time-sinks of using crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Patreon; but also the hidden gold. Over time, my use of crowdfunding and lack of reliance on the “system” has meant an unexpected freedom in art-making which has, in turn, kept my connection with my fanbase alive and authentic, with less focus on what I’m Selling and more focus on what I’m Making. And, more importantly, on the connection between artist and audience as a transcendent — and necessary — part of this strange ride we call Life.

Over the last 100 years, cars have gotten faster and smarter. But, the way people use them hasn’t fundamentally changed… until now. Today, self driving cars are more than a moonshot, they’re a reality. And turning this technology into a service that people can use in their daily lives requires a whole new set of considerations. Consider the design challenges at hand when you have a virtual driver, and a vacant driver’s seat: How do riders indicate they’re ready for their trip to start? How should the car communicate what it’s seeing, doing and what route it plans to take to inform and assure riders experiencing the technology for the first time? And down the line, how might we design cars differently when you don’t have to consider a human driver?

As shot by cinematographer Ed Lachman, Texas becomes a hyperrealistic late-capitalist landscape of endless vistas, shopping malls, and prefab buildings. In True Stories, Byrne uses songs to stitch together pop iconography, voodoo rituals, and a singular variety show — all in the service of uncovering the mysteries that lurk under the surface of everyday experience.

What Are You Smoking? podcast host and cannabis columnist Will Hyde will be joined by representatives of the cannabis industry in Massachusetts, California, and Canada to discuss how the patchwork system of state laws is shaping the cannabis industry — and not for the better.

Meanwhile, Canada is demonstrating that even federal legalization of cannabis doesn’t always mean predictable standards from province to province. We’ll look at what legislators can do to make things more seamless for the industry and how companies are working around current obstacles.

Medical marijuana has been legalized in 33 states plus the District of Columbia, and 11 of those states have also initiated an adult-use program. It’s not a matter of if, but when the rest of the United States will enjoy full access to cannabis.

During the promotion of his latest album, “Carnival III,” Wyclef visited various colleges such as Howard, Temple, UCLA, USC, NYU, UMass Lowell, and more. Each of his visits were wildly successful. Not only did Wyclef give a masterclass at each school, he quickly connected with students and made an impact on them. In turn, those students also made an impact on him. He describes the experience as “going back to school” as he learned as much from the students as they learned from him. The content captured on this journey has not only impacted the lives of the students Wyclef chose to mentor, it has also inspired viewers to follow their dreams in a positive and healthy way. Because of this positive impact, Wyclef has been recording the “Wyclef Goes Back to School” Album. The album will contain all original songs produced by Wyclef, but will feature students from each of the schools visited either as musicians, side artists, etc. Through this project, Wyclef is striving to create a platform for undiscovered musicians and artists with raw talent who may not have millions of views on YouTube or followers on Social Media. For him, it is ALL about the talent.

Entrepreneurs seeking funding to build blockchain startups have long had to seek support from traditional VCs. Today, many have bypassed that path by funding their startups selling tokens directly to investors, which is proving as a great way to raise money without giving up core company ownership or decision-making power. While it’s clear the tech ecosystem benefits from new funding methods, the panelists believe that while token offerings can be legitimate ways to finance startups, they aren’t for every company. Panelists will give their unique perspective on when to consider an offering (e.g. speed, control), when it’s not (e.g. regulatory challenges), and why startups might consider both crypto and traditional financing mechanism to create tomorrow’s next billion dollar business.

Featuring a rotating cast of band members led by James Petralli and Steve Terebecki, these tracks draw on the sounds of different personnel to create a cohesive whole — the result being an album that’s as varied and vivacious as anything they’ve ever done.
