We are facing exponential change, and it’s only just the beginning. This could be heaven – or it could be hell; all depends on how we collaborate, going forward. The future is already here – but most of us haven’t noticed. If you can explain your job it will probably be automated – and yet the vast majority of new jobs haven’t even been invented yet. Human-only jobs are our future, and we now must seek to become ‘exponentially human’. Embrace technology but don’t become it – because technology is not what we seek but how we seek.
Technology vs. Humanity is a last-minute wake up call to take part in the most important conversation humanity may ever have. Will we blindly outsource and abdicate big chunks of our lives to the global technology companies – or will we take back our autonomy and demand a sustainable balance between technology and humanity? By supplying a Socratic and humanistic critique of the Megashifts currently recasting our world, Gerd Leonhard provides the prologue for this great debate.
Gerd Leonhard is a European futurist, speaker and author who specializes in the debate between humanity and technology.
Quote from my book #techvshuman „We must not pursue efficiency over humanity. Exponential technologies are quickly making everything around us increasingly more efficient. As a result, everything is becoming a service, everything is in the cloud, and everything is now smart“ pic.twitter.com/e37vAIQXcY
