Douglas Rushkoff – Team Human
Keynote speaker Douglas Rushkoff, one of the most influential thinkers of our time, thinks we should refocus on the human in our digital future. The widely celebrated author, speaker and media-expert describes in his newest book ‘Team Human’ how money has become a tool for exploitation, education has become a factory and the internet being something that divides rather than connects us. Have we lost the focus on ourselves?
The human consciousness is complex and incomprehensible, Rushkoff states, which is why any attempt to express it through algorithms is just another attempt to escape from ourselves and humanity as a whole. This is why he calls for a new society, one that is based on collaboration and consciousness — a ‘Team Human’ that focuses on human connection rather than the digital infrastructure that undermines it.
