An Evening with Peter Norvig and HER, Movie Screening & Talk – Jun 24

Her - WonderfestIt’s a great pleasure of modern life to watch a wonderful movie, and then to discuss it with a smart friend. Even better when the movie is Her, Spike Jonze’s 2013 sci-fi-rom-com about a man who falls in love with a female-voiced operating system (think Siri) — and the smart friend is Peter Norvig, world expert in artificial intelligence. 

Her is 94% “Fresh” at RottenTomatoes. Moira MacDonald of the Seattle Times called it, “A touching, buoyant pleasure.” Rafer Guzman of Newsday wrote, “Her goes light-years beyond science-fiction cliches.”
