Digital Ethics , Gerd Leonhard , Technology vs Humanity

Blogger Nikola Danaylov aka. “Socrates” interviewed Gerd Leonhard last week. “Gerd is most recently the author of a brand new book titled Technology vs Humanity: The Coming Clash Between Man and Machine and, as someone who puts stress on ethics in his work as a futurist, I thought he would make a great interviewee on Singularity.FM. So check out his interview and let me know what you think!

During our 80 min discussion with Gerd Leonhard we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: why Gerd considers himself a humanist and a traveller; his journey from theology and philosophy through music and entrepreneurship and into foresight and futurism; starting a Spotify-type of a company 10 years too early and writing his bestseller book The Future of Music; the idea of merging with machines and his latest book Technology vs Humanity; whether we want Silicon Valley and DARPA to determine the future of humanity; why technology is not enough and the need for digital ethics; political referendums, universal basic income and technological unemployment; his concept of CORE vs the popular STEM; capitalism, abundance and profit…”
