Techno Forces
Featuring David Kirkpatrick
How do we protect our privacy and freedom in a networked world controlled by a handful of tech giants? How will advances in AR, VR, and brain-machine interfaces change humanity? How do we improve our cities and infrastructure with technology in mind? How do we prepare for a future where most of today's jobs will be done by machines?

In this Techno Forces segment of Hidden Forces, host Demetri Kofinas speaks with journalist and technology commentator David Kirkpatrick. David is the author of The Facebook Effect and the founder of Techonomy Media, which seeks to promote conversations at the highest levels of the enterprise, academia, and government about the role of technology in social progress.

 

This conversation spans the evolving landscape of our technological society. How do we protect our privacy and freedom in a networked world controlled by a handful of tech giants like Facebook, Google, and Amazon? How do we protect our autonomy and agency in a future intermediated by augmented reality, virtual reality, and brain-machine interfaces? How do we prepare for a future where most, if not all, of today’s jobs, will be done by machines? How do we improve our cities and infrastructure with technology in mind? Can we innovate our way out of climate change, famine, and war? Are there limits to what technology can solve?

 

In addition to overseeing the operations of Techonomy Media, David Kirkpatrick is a contributor to Vanity Fair and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

 

Producer & Host: Demetri Kofinas
