A Discussion of the Book “Exponential: How the Next Digital Revolution Will Rewire Life on Earth”

May 4 @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm CDT

Free

Digital technology is now ubiquitous and pervasive in our lives and society, with largely positive impacts on how we live, work, learn, and play. Of course, there are some dangers, risks and concerns as well, but as with any tool we can use combinations of responsible design, education, personal behavior, and policies to mitigate these while maximizing benefit. Perhaps the real question is: how are these technologies changing life and society, at all scales? That is the topic of this fascinating book by Azheem Azhar, and this will be the focus of this inaugural non-fiction online book discussion group led by Austin Forum advisory board member Mike Ignatowski of AMD. Please join us and contribute your thoughts to how digital technologies are changing, even rewiring, life on Earth! You do not have to read the book to participate, but we encourage reading it as part of the Austin Forum’s “AI April!”
