Our Technological Future
In this panel, hugely acclaimed authors and philosophers Douglas Rushkoff and Koert van Mensvoort and Yandex director of Strategic Marketing Andrey Sebrant will elaborate on their views on the future of humanity and the role of human consciousness therein. While Rushkoff calls for a ‘Team Human’ that focuses on human connection rather than the digital infrastructure that undermines it, Van Mensvoort sees technology as a second nature on itself, one we can co-evolve and collaborate with. Sebrant identifies himself as a ‘hardcore techno-optimist’, and is not afraid to defend this view in any public discussion.
Where do their philosophies overlap, and where do they collide? What will our technological future look like? Join us in this panel discussion, moderated by Sónar+D’s Antonia Folguera and find out! Read more about the speakers by clicking their names below.
