S10E05: The Case for Active Transhumanism
David Wood joins us to discuss his visions for the future, and how technology is going to impact our daily lives.
Interview with David Wood, futurist speaker, analyst, commentator, and writer.
David is one of the pioneers of the smartphone industry. He is now a full-time futurist speaker, analyst, and writer.
David’s interests lie in the transformations in society that are enabled by technological disruption. In his most recent book, Vital Foresight, David argues that, as a society, we need to be better at imagining the future so that we can critique it. We need to anticipate future scenarios with much more powerful technology than today’s, so we can understand how to live alongside highly capable robots and AIs, work alongside them, and become skilled in designing and configuring them.
In our interview, we dive into why the word “transhumanism” is so controversial, as well and David’s thoughts on the future of technology. Find out where to watch and listen in the links below!
