World Without Mind
CENTRE FOR IDEAS: PAST EVENT
We love our tech toys, tools and networks but what are we sacrificing for their daily convenience? As the big four – Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon – get bigger, they consume more and more of our attention. Privacy, contemplation and autonomous thought are just some of the casualties. Franklin Foer argues that this transformation has gone so far that it endangers our ability to think. Are we on our way to a world without mind?
Presented by UNSW Centre for Ideas and Carriageworks. Grand Challenges Program: Living with 21st Century Technology.
Limited free tickets available for UNSW staff and students.
