‘The Art Of Curation’ Live from Cannes Lions With Your Help

Kyle Snarr / May 9, 2016


For this year’s Cannes Lions, Flipboard has been selected to host a discussion on the power and future of curation. As algorithms attempt to refine our content choices, risk of losing the magical moments of discovery looms. Can data scientists write code that enables serendipity?

This examination will be lead by The New Yorker’s Ken Auletta, where Mike McCue, co-founder/CEO of curation platform Flipboard, and Adam Weinberg, the Alice Pratt Brown Director of the Whitney Museum of American Art, consider current and future states in which machines define what is culturally relevant.

We’re very excited to announce this session. If you’re as interested in this topic as we are, there’s a chance for you to see it broadcasted live. Only the most popular talks will be streamed and you get to pick them, so vote here to let the team at Cannes Lions know they should live stream this session with Mike, Adam and Ken.

Finally, we’d like to thank the incomparable Becca Clason for handcrafting the amazing time-lapse video to announce our session’s topic to the world.

Let the art of curation begin!
