Last chance to reserve your tickets to NYC Media Lab’s Summit 2021: Future Imperfect! The two-day conference will be fully virtual from Oct 6-7. And we’re kicking things off with a keynote you won’t want to miss.
NYU Researcher Laura Edelson is the Director of the NYU Cybersecurity for Democracy Project, and on Oct 6th, she’ll kick off Summit 2021 by joining NYC Media Lab’s Erica Matsumoto to go in depth on Ad Observer’s attempt to address the widespread problem of misinformation on digital platforms.
And later that day, OpenAI Co-Founder & CTO Greg Brockman will discuss the long-term impact of powerful AI.
Of course there’s more! Join us for eye-opening panels, workshops, and demos throughout the Summit:
- Panels: AI & Local News, Diverse Teams Build Better, Metaverse & Storytelling, Green Tech, and Exploring Outer Space

Are you a design student or new graduate? Join us for AIGA NY’s 4th annual mini-job fair! Meet reps from New York’s top creative companies and studios. Find out what a typical day is like for their designers and hear what creative directors are looking for in new designers like you.
It’s speed networking meets the design industry and not another portfolio review. Come by, introduce yourself, and discover where to take your first steps in the design industry.
AIGA NY board members Caspar Lam, Janet Esquirol and Jarrett Fuller will co-host.
AIGA NY Student Job Fair is part of the Work in Progress event series. These events are focused on the creative process, personal development and professional development. They aim to give a peek behind the curtain and expose failure as a valuable experience.
