WHAT WOR­RIES YOU T HE MOST A BOUT T E CHNOLOGY?

Idealog - - IDEALOG / TECH FUTURES LAB -

I’m not so wor­ried about tech­nol­ogy it­self, but about how peo­ple un­der­stand it. There’s a lot of breath­less hype around at the mo­ment, but very lit­tle com­pre­hen­sion of some of the sec­ond and third or­der im­pli­ca­tions of how tech­nol­ogy will im­pact so­ci­ety. Tech­nol­ogy adop­tion will af­fect many com­plex sys­tems in un­ex­pected ways, but peo­ple de­fault to sim­plis­tic mod­els that tend to rely on his­tor­i­cal prece­dents.
