AI is very much in the news, and while some are receptive to the advantages it can bring to humanity, others are expressing concern that it could destroy us. So, Andrew Stein’s play about tech entrepreneur Nick, who thinks he has found the answer to making people really happy, feels timely. His wheeze? An algorithm so complex that it can make all your big life decisions for you and do it better than you could yourself. But can a computer really know you better than you know yourself, and where might such technology lead?
After tremendous Silicon Valley success and a big exit, Nick presents his three best friends with his next big idea: an algorithm that is more complex than the human brain and promises to guide them through big life decisions better and more effectively than they can guide themselves. In an era where every aspect of human life has been documented with data and disrupted by technology, do computers know us better than we know ourselves? And even if they do, should we listen? Andrew Stein’s sharp, unnerving thriller is a timely and insightful exploration of our tech obsessed world. Age recommendation: 14+ Special notes: Latecomers may not be admitted
