Can Beauty Still Save the World?

Living Room Session
Public

Beauty was once an intrinsic value used to describe the ultimate ambition for what humanity could be: the good life was a beautiful life. Today, beauty’s deeper meaning seems lost to all but a handful of philosophers and art historians.

This public Living Room Session calls for a new aesthetic, emotional, ethical, and cultural movement to place beauty back at the center of our lives. With Shakti Maira, author of The Promise of Beauty and Why It Matters, and other guests. Hosted in partnership with The VoV.

Save the date! Registration opens soon.

Extended Reality (XR) Ethics

Living Room Session
Public
toggle button

Extended Reality (or short, XR) is the umbrella term for Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technologies. Augmented or immersive experiences raise critical issues of identity and physical and psychological integrity, and serve as focal lenses for essential ethical conundrums of digital technology in general. What can we learn about the human condition in XR? How can we create XR experiences that are conscious and inclusive? And specifically, what are the ethical frameworks we need to develop to that effect?

Join a special Living Room Session hosted by the House of Beautiful Business in partnership with IEEE, featuring journalist, historian, and podcast host Kent Bye; Monique Morrow, the president and co-founder of Humanized Internet, a non-profit with a focus on digital identity and ethics in technology; and tech ethicist Mathana.

Hosted by Monika Jiang, Tim Leberecht, and John C. Havens, executive director of The IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems.

What's Your Strategy?

Living Room Session
Residents

In 2020, talk of strategy quickly became a joke in the face of the pandemic. This year, strategy may mount a comeback, but it will need to adapt to the new not-knowingness of it all.

As Martin Reeves of BCG would say, “Your strategy needs a strategy.” In this Living Room Session, we dived into strategy with him and fellow strategists Boris Dolkhani, vice president corporate marketing, Bosch; Barbara Martin Coppola, chief digital officer, IKEA (Ingka Group); young chess prodigy and U.S. national chess champion Oliver Boydell; and Rahaf Harfoush, author, Hustle & Float, to debate which strategy frameworks can propel us forward and which we can leave out on the curb.
