Technology vs. Humanity
How can technology help humans to re-invent themselves?
At the beginning of this year, the futurist Gerd Leonhard gave a thought-provoking talk for the Dutch Future Society focusing on his latest book: Technology vs. Humanity. Don’t get fooled by the title – his goal is actually to stimulate the debate on how we can ensure that people guide and control technology so that it can serve humanity. The core objective of all technological progress should be human flourishing. The future will give us a lot of possibilities to reinvent ourselves – smart technology can take over most of our jobs and we can focus on being human.
Are you prepared for technology to do your job? Are you clear about what your human strengths are and how to develop them?
