POSTHOC returned to Susan’s SoHo loft for a fascinating conversation with co-authors Igor Tulchinsky, WorldQuant CEO, and Dr. Christopher Mason, Professor of Genomics, Physiology, and Biophysics at Cornell, to discuss their new book The Age of Prediction. Published via co-hosts MIT Press, the interview was moderated by Harvard’s Prediction Project founder and Astronomy Professor Alyssa Goodman. In this incredible conversation, we unpacked some of the nuances of the brave new artificially intelligent world we’re already living in as the age of prediction gains steam, and what the implications are for human behavior.
We were treated to fabulous food and cocktails homemade with love by Susan as always, and a few lucky guests got to go home with copies of The Age of Prediction.
We were also treated to a stunning musical performance by world-renowned concert violinist Frank Almond, who also shared his own story of prediction and risk following the theft of his precious 300-year-old Stradivarius violin. Fortunately the violin was returned and he played it for us in a series of breathtaking concertos that quite literally brought the room to tears. Thank you for another illustrious night, NYC! Til next time.
