Technology vs. Humanity: The Coming Clash Between Man and Machine
One of the greatest futurologist of present, Gerd Leonhard, will arrive to the autumn congress from Switzerland. A man who sees future before it comes, will come.
We live today in one of the most exciting eras in history of mankind, in next 20 years it will change more dramatically than it has changed in previous 300 years. Technologies are getting cheaper and cheaper, helping us in every aspect of life. Sci-fi is changing to scientific facts, artificial intelligence is at our doorstep.
We will re-program human DNA to eliminate diseases. The time when superintelligence will overcome humans is probably not far away. But we are facing ethical challenges because technology has no ethics. Privacy loss, technological unemployment, theft of digital identity, data security. Technology is with us but it can as well be against us.
Are we ready to lose control over our lives? We are at the key crossroad right now and we can’t let ourselves to wait idly.
