Exponential, digital technology is shaping the world, our bodies and minds. Thanks to networked technology and social media our reach and our cooperation with other humans is extended. We have become nodes in the network side by side with machines and artificial intelligence. Our minds travel at the speed of light, but our bodies stay at home. Or do they travel with us, when we transform to quantifiable data, which we share, and when we break down our DNA to data sets, which can be analyzed and manipulated by computers? We too have become information traveling at the speed of light.
In this talk Marshall McLuhan’s extensions of man will merge with Gordon Moore’s and Bob Metcalfe’s laws put in perspective by Ray Kurzweil’s ideas about the singularity and Paul Virillio’s thinking on dromology.
It is based on the forthcoming book “The Global Pulse” by Danish tech-reporter and radio host Henrik Fohns.
