AI STORIES AND PLAYS

This page provides links to the stories and plays by Richard Epstein that explore the social implications of AI and Virtual Reality.   

LINKS TO PLAYS

This page presents links to two plays.  The first, "Mad Max" is about the Turing Test and was read at the Future of the Turing Test Conference (Dartmouth College, January 2000).  The second, "ElderCare VR" is about cyberculture and virtual reality.  It will be read at the CEPE2000 Conference (Dartmouth College, July 2000).  We will post the ElderCare VR play on this web after its presentation at the CEPE2000 Conference.
