On the last episode of Future of Tech, we introduced you to Dr. David Passig, a renowned futurist, who explained that future studies is less about predicting the future, and more about understanding the present in order to avoid negative outcomes and enhance positive ones. Today, in Part 2 of our discussion with Dr. Passig, we continue the conversation about how technology will continue to shape the future of our world. Dr. Passig dives into the negative impacts of all technology, and gives an insight into the future of social media, plus, he details the stages of evolution and artificial intelligence, and how close we are to truly humanizing our artifacts in a meaningful way, including the sharing of social knowledge between technology. And, Dr. Passig explains why he is optimistic about the future, despite the inherent dangers of technology, and why he believes that the more we look ahead, the more we can prepare and unify humanity. Enjoy this episode! 


Main Takeaways:

  • Pluses and Minuses: There has never been a technology that only brought positive impacts. Every technology also had negative aspects to it, which needed to be sussed out and refined over time. This is an ongoing process that happens constantly throughout centuries.
  • Incoming IoT: The IoT will be much more important than people currently believe. Through the IoT, our artifacts will be able to begin sharing knowledge that we as humans are not necessarily aware.
  • Optimistic Mindset: Although there are dangers to every technology and the future is never certain, we can prepare ourselves and use the knowledge we have gained in order to unify the human species.
