Technology, Society and the Future of Humanity
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg
New emerging and converging technologies (such as blockchain, AI, and synthetic biology) are disrupting business-as-usual in fields as diverse as finance, supply chain, medicine and the creative industries. This course deals with the question of how we should use technology to create ethical economic and social systems that reflect the kind of world we want to exist in 25, 50, 100 years from now. Our ideas of what humanity considers to be a "good life" will influence and govern how disruptive technologies can either contribute to it or lead to a dystrophic future.
