Rayguns, Robots, Drones: Technology's Peril and Promise

Fri, Jan 13, 2017 (All day) to Sat, Mar 25, 2017 (All day)

Can any technology ever exist solely for good? Science fiction authors have imagined worlds in which technology becomes a threat. But is this more than the stuff of fiction? This Big Idea project is an opportunity for a look at the role of technology in our real lives as well as our fictional fantasies. Using robots, drones and rayguns as metaphors for technological advances, the project examines the complex nature of technology’s inherent promise and its potential danger.
