Tuesday, April 13, 2021
7 p.m. | Virtual event on Zoom

Nora Young is the creator and host of Spark, CBC’s national radio show and podcast that explores technology and culture. Spark is a smart, but irreverent, weekly deep dive into big topics in technology-driven change. Recent episodes have examined everything from how ‘non-fungible tokens’ are changing the art world, to the ways algorithms and machine learning perpetuate bias.

On April 13, join Young for an in-depth look at how recent advancements in technology and the explosion of data is affecting our behaviours, relationships and opinions.
