Can the pros of technology outweigh their disadvantages?
In the rapidly advancing industry of information and communication technologies, artificial intelligence appears to offer tremendous opportunities. However, not everything that glitters is gold. What are the implications for humanity and the essence of our being?
Together with the highly popular De Nieuwe Wereld YouTube channel and the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands, we recorded a talk show on campus at the University of Utrecht on April 19th, 2023, called "Can the pros of technology outweigh their disadvantages?" Philosopher Ad Verbrugge discussed this topic with experts including Yuri van Geest (trendwatcher and impact entrepreneur), Julia Janssen (artist, designer, and researcher), Toon Segers (co-founder of Roseman Labs and part-time PhD candidate in Cryptography at TU Eindhoven), and Vincent Jansen (digital identity expert and managing partner at INNOPAY).
This talk show is part of a series organised by De Nieuwe Wereld and INNOPAY on the topic of digital sustainability.
