Where Near-future Techno-thrillers and Sci-fi Meet: Douglas Preston and John Scalzi in conversation, 1:00 – 1:30pm, Uptown Stage

Every day, our present begins to look more and more like science fiction. We converse with AIs on our phones, communicate by digital avatars, and maintain entire social presences online. Movies like HER demonstrate how familiar – and how close – a world could be where AI’s become completely essential to our personal lives. Join bestselling authors Douglas Preston and John Scalzi as they discuss the implications of current technologies, the blurred lines between sci-fi and techno-thrillers, and near-future possibilities in a rapidly changing world.
