Richard Watson, author of Digital vs. Human invites us to take a critical look at ‘how we’ll live, love, and think in the future’, examining the possible effects of technology on every area of our lives.
The next fifty years will be influenced by the relationship between people and technologies created by a tiny handful of designers and developers. These inventions will undoubtedly change our lives. But the question is, to what end?
What do we want these technologies to achieve on our behalf? What are they capable of, and — as they transform the media, the economy, healthcare, education, work, and the home — what kind of lives do we want to lead?
Join Richard Watson and Let’s Be Brief’s Stephanie McLaren-Neckles for some future gazing, followed by an audience Q&A.
