Everything, I think, Now in line. Will mRNA technology lead us out of the epidemic, or will a clever, evolving virus bring us years of testing, booster shots, uncertainty and anxiety? Will AI liberate us through amazing new, innovative, instrumental and entertaining means, or subtly enslave us to an algorithm-driven world where none of our choices are really our own? Will we stop the dramatic rise in global temperatures or move back to higher flood protection and more powerful air conditioners? Will ransomware be controlled, or will it bring down the government?
Although the last decade has seen dramatic technological acceleration, the last 1 month has begun a tectonic change in the way we live, work and connect. The world is being rebuilt, and RE: WIRED where we will discuss the big bets of society if progress is made instead of bad.
So join us on November 9th and 10th for a series of conversations between technologists, artists, policymakers and others who think about the consequences of technology for society, the economy, sustainability and ultimately our future.
