Webinar Series: The World Has Changed
Webinar Topic: Navigating Technological Change For A Better Future.
About The Webinar:
Advancing technologies have made it possible to solve the grand challenges of humanity including hunger, disease, energy, and education to create the amazing future of Star Trek. In this ideal world, we could have unlimited and inexpensive food, clean energy, education for all, and live in perfect health.
Yet the same technologies that make this possible can also be used to engineer deadly viruses and create pandemics far worse than Coronavirus, rob humans of their jobs and livelihoods, create massive inequity and social turmoil, and take away our privacy and freedoms. This is the dystopia of Mad Max. The pandemic has taught us all what exponential means and accelerated our move to the future.
Watch this webinar, as leading researcher and teacher in technology development, Vivek Wadhwa, describes the critical crossroad our society is on & why the decisions we make will define our future.
