This is #1 of a new podcast featuring every chapter in Gerd Leonhard's book Technology vs Humanity. In this podcast Gerd and his colleague Petervan are talking through Chapter 1. Gerd indicates that we are halfway through the century’s second decade and at a critical pivot point in technology evolution, a hinge moment when change will not only become combinatory and exponential but inevitable and irreversible. Gerd argues that now is our last chance to question the nature of these coming challenges, from artificial intelligence to human genome editing, and striking a balance will be the key.
