Episode 3 - Samantha & Gerd Leonhard

Where are the ethics around technology?

 "From genetic engineering to artificial intelligence and robotics, from cognitive computing to the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 – we are heading into a future where much of what used to be science fiction is becoming science fact. What consequences will this have on society, culture, economy, business, government, the environment … and ourselves? What do we need to do today to make sure the ultimate result will still be human flourishing?" Gerd Leonhard

Listed by Wired Magazine as one of the top 100 most influential people in Europe, Gerd Leonhard’s work focuses on the future of humanity and technology, digital transformation, big data, automation, AI and robotics.
