Description
"The Technology That Transforms Us" discussion moderated by David Pogue took place on May 30, 2019 as part of the World Science Festival. It featured a panel of experts including Rick Potts, Joe Henrich, Isabel Pedersen, and David Chalmers.

"We make tools. It defines us. But since the first proto-human tied a stick to a stone, tools have also been making us. Join our panel of philosophers, anthropologists, and futurists as we examine our journey from the stone age to the computer age—seeking clues about who we are, and what we are becoming. Our smartphones have become veritable appendages. How long before we literally merge with our technology? Wearables, implantables, ingestible sensors, digital telepathy, and brain-computer interfaces are all on the horizon. Join us for a fascinating glimpse of a future that is closer than you think."
