Amy Kurzweil: Artificial

November 1 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

In Artificial, we meet the Kurzweils, a family of creators who are preserving their history through unusual means. At the center is renowned inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil, who has long been saving the documents of his deceased father, Fredric, an accomplished conductor and pianist from Vienna who fled the Nazis in 1938. Through AI and salvaged writing, Ray is building a chatbot that writes in Fredโ€™s voice, and he enlists his daughter, cartoonist Amy Kurzweil, to help him ensure the immortality of their familyโ€™s fraught inheritance.

Amy Kurzweil is a New Yorker cartoonist and the author of Flying Couch: A Graphic Memoir. She was a 2021 Berlin Prize Fellow with the American Academy in Berlin, a 2019 Shearing Fellow with the Black Mountain Institute, and has received fellowships from MacDowell, Djerassi, and elsewhere.
