    Political theorist and director of Harvard's Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics Danielle Allen's work usually occupies a scholarly realm. This autumn, it takes a decidedly more personal turn with Cuz, a memoir that reflects on the American criminal justice system. With an investigative journalist's tack, Allen explores how her cousin's arrest for an attempted carjacking as a teenager began a complicated, 15-year year odyssey that contributed to his death at the age of 29. Allen visits Scripps for a reading and discussion of this poignant and devastating story.

    "Marketing Experiences With Machine Learning - Fairness and Accuracy" A growing portion of company communication to customers depends on artificial intelligence and machine learning. Brands are heavily invested in technologies that automatically find consumers and dynamically create messages for those consumers, without human involvement. Programmatic technologies decide where to place ads, dynamic creative decides what that message looks like, cognitive and conversational technologies are starting to present a consumer "voice." Ray Velez will consider the question: How do we provide the leadership to ensure that our messages and choices align with our values when algorithms decide who and what to message? Velez manages the company's capabilities in web cross-platform technology architecture and development and oversees the technology community across the company. He is known widely for his ability to rethink and shape business organizations in a new age of customer empowerment.
