The Sci-Fi Feedback Loop: Mapping Fiction’s Influence on Real-World Tech
There’s little question that the imaginary futures of science fiction have influenced the development of real-world technologies, from space travel to cyberspace. Join Arizona State University’s Center for Science and the Imagination for a virtual conversation among sci-fi authors, scholars, and technologists, examining this feedback loop between science fiction and technical innovation. We’ll dive into the history of sci-fi’s influence, and consider its impact on the direction of technology development today.

This is the first in a series of online events for The Applied Sci-Fi Project, which seeks to understand the influence of science fiction on technology and the people who build it, and to study the specific ways that sci-fi storytelling can be applied as a tool for innovation and foresight. This project is possible thanks to generous support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

This virtual event is free and open to everyone.

May 12, 2022 11:00 AM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)
