George Gantz, “THE HUMAN RACE – AND THE TECHNOLOGY RACE” November 4, 2014
Has technology advanced beyond our ability to control it? Some believe this is a good thing and will lead to a marvelous “Singularity,” a point where self-replicating machinery will largely replace human labor, freeing humans to pursue whatever they want. Others are less sanguine about the impacts of technology, warning that the earth and the human race itself may be headed for disaster. Gantz will lead a discussion on these profound questions, starting with our own experiences with digital technologies and recent research on the human-digital interface.
