Autonomous Revolution Virtual Event

(If you’d like to read the book – here is a link.)

Background

For the third time in the history of humanity, civilization is undergoing epic cultural transformation—a cultural phase change.

Artificial intelligence and virtual environments are creating a world of abundance in which our institutions are changing form, obey different rules, use different methods, and behave contrary to our intuition.

We are at the dawn of the Autonomous Revolution, a technological revolution as decisive as the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions. In this revolution, autonomous machines will drive transformations as discontinuous as going from barter to money and markets or from wandering tribes to cities.

In their newest book, The Autonomous Revolution: Reclaiming the Future We’ve Sold to Machines, venture investor and executive Bill Davidow and journalist Mike Malone explore why increases in productivity no longer translate into growth in the GDP and how zero cost, one-to-many communications have been turned into productivity tools for cybercrime and propaganda.

Davidow will be joined at this virtual fireside chat by Bruce Schecter, who will help faciliate conversation about the profound implications of the autonomous revolution and the authors’ visionary solutions.

This event was live-streamed on Intel Alumni Network’s Facebook page – questions can be submitted into the comments below the video.
