Join us for a movie and conversation! In the futuristic WestWorld, robots are used to create the perfect vacation destination. All goes well until they gain a mind of their own.

We’ll consider the ethical issues this film raises as modern science races to close the gap on fiction. With guest panelist Michael Clamann, PhD, Post-doctoral Associate in the Duke Human Autonomy Lab, facilitated by Thomas Williams, post-doctoral fellow, Duke Initiative for Science & Society.
