About the Event
TEDxPrague 2017: Brave New World will take us into the past, present and future, of course.
Because today's world is changing faster than ever. New technologies intertwine our lives and invisibly modify our everyday existence. What looked like a distant future 30 years ago is now here and present.
The rise of new technologies also has its bright and dark sides. We can discuss any topic from anywhere, anytime and with anyone in the World, but privacy has becomes almost an extinct species. We can alter DNA of plants and help increase of agricultural yield, but we cannot control who and how will be able to manipulate genetic information of what. New types of jobs and kinds of work appear everyday but many more are disappearing due to automation. We will probably face a radical change of our societies soon.
Is it possible to separate positive aspects of technological progres from the negatives? Can humankind controll the development of technology or are we becoming its victims? What can we do to accomodate the fast changes in our personal lives? And what can we do as a society? We'll try to tackle all these questions during TEDxPrague 2017.
