Time: 7:00 pm

Self-driving vehicles are here now and their numbers increase every day. What does this mean for the future? What will you drive in five years? Will you be driving at all by the end of the decade, or will your car drive for you? Advances in computing power have been exponential and will continue to be so. What does that mean for society? Will the coming decade see massive job loss or unforeseen opportunities? Bob Lawhorn, a student of the exponential evolution of technology, will discuss these and other topics in a fascinating program on what is happening now and likely to happen in the next 3 - 5 years. An instructor in the Institute for Learning in Retirement at Cedar Crest College, Bob’s classes are very popular; Emmaus Public Library is grateful for his participation in this program.
