The issue includes:

  • “The Story of a New Brain” by Ava Kofman: A new generation of brain scanners promise to upgrade your mind’s operating system and optimize your neural circuits. Results may vary.
  • “The Smart, the Stupid, and the Catastrophically Scary: An Interview with an Anonymous Data Scientist”: A long conversation with a veteran data scientist on AI, deep learning, FinTech, and the future.
  • “The Madness of the Crowd” by Tim Hwang: A decade ago, the internet was praised for empowering the smart, collaborative crowd. Now it’s blamed for unleashing the stupid, malicious mob. What happened?
  • “Building the Virtual Wall” by Juan Llamas-Rodriguez: The US government is pouring millions into automating border enforcement. It’s a good story for tech journalists, a lucrative opportunity for defense contractors, and bad for everyone else.
  • “From Tinder to Transference: A Roundtable on Technology and Psychology” with Jamieson Webster, Alex Kriss, Carlene MacMillan, and Marcus Coelen: How does technology affect emotional intelligence? Do the tools we use make us happier, sadder, dumber, smarter? Are those even the right questions to ask? We asked four mental health professionals to tell us about the role that technology plays in their practice, and in the inner lives of their patients.
  • “JavaScript Is For Girls” by Miriam Posner: Decades ago, men kicked women out of the programming profession just as it was taking off. Now that women are fighting their way back in, men are finding new ways to protect their status.
  • “Dr. Robot” by Conrad Amenta: New software is industrializing medicine by turning doctors into data entry clerks—and making them suicidally depressed in the process.
