Facebook knows what you like, Waze knows where you are, and Google knows what you’re looking for. In the name of convenience, we have willingly chained ourselves to digital archives, and allowed others, including companies and governments, to follow our every move. How much privacy are you willing to give up? How much have you given up already? Is our use of new technologies liberating us or imprisoning us? Or doing both simultaneously? We invite you to learn about the exciting and alarming technologies available to us and their societal implications as our distinguished panelists (Trond Undheim, Senior Lecturer in Global Economics and Management at MIT Sloan School of Management and leading expert on strategy, technology policy, entrepreneurship, and the role of technology in society and Brendan Ciecko, Founder of Cuseum, powering interactive, socially engaging, and context-aware mobile apps for museums to enhance the way we experience art) speak on these topics with the event moderator, Will Braman, Ballentine Partners’ Chief Investment Officer.
- How are new technologies being used for both good and evil?
- What is the downside to these new technologies being adopted so quickly?
- How many people want to get off the grid?
- What are the factors driving the “Brain Drain” away from Boston and even out of the US?
- Is there concern about the attention span of the next generation? What does it mean for our future?
