Navigating Technological Change at Light Speed
Unprecedented advances in technology have now made science fiction a reality. In only a handful of years, we’ve moved to the near worldwide use of handheld computing, the full mapping the human genome, and the advent of drones and driverless cars, to name just a few life-changing developments. This trajectory of technological advancement is only getting faster.
Based on his critically acclaimed new book “The Driver in the Driverless Car: How Our Technology Choices Will Create the Future,” Vivek Wadhwa not only explores the amazing technologies that are just now being integrated into our lives and work, but he also shares both the dilemmas and the solutions of technology advancement. Using his wonderfully vivid storytelling skills, he examines how Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Machines, Robotics, Synthetic Biology, etc. are impacting fields of healthcare, education, transportation, energy development, investment management and more, analyzing the huge benefits as well as the economic and social consequences. He shares a three-pronged assessment that gauges whether a new technology will benefit everyone equally; whether the rewards outweigh the risks; and whether it promotes autonomy or leads to dependency.
Alongside a balanced evaluation of the impacts of both recently arrived technology or developments just around the corner, Vivek examines:
– How driverless cars are a perfect metaphor for our anxiety over where technology is headed
– What conditions make services or sectors ripe for a giant leap into the future
– Which industries stand to benefit most, and which will be upended
– Why Artificial Intelligence is both the most important breakthrough and the most dangerous technology ever created by man
– When, and if, society will accept robotic caregivers, housekeepers , and even warriors
– Whether cyber security can begin to keep up with our ubiquitous connectivity
This might be the most fascinating speech you will ever experience regarding our future. Don’t miss out in sharing Vivek with your audience.
