The End of Digital
"Technology is anything invented after you were born," said the computer scientist, Alan Kay. By this measure, much of our digital world will just be 'stuff' for the coming generations, blending into the background, as innocuous as a wheel or a table. But as digital technology disappears from view it is changing our world, our work, and the very nature of what it means to be human. How will we live and work in a future where the lines between physical and digital have been erased? Where we exist as much outside our biology as inside it? Get a glimpse of what might be in this talk from Applied Futurist, Tom Cheesewright.
Mark from WorthingDigital sat down and had a chat with Tom ahead of his talk next month: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSOe2VayaVI
