  • We are desperately struggling to comprehend what is here now and what might happen in the future. Increasingly information via a mobile is instantly available to more and more people, making it obvious who has what and who has not. If society fails to deliver universal benefits then unrest will follow. To counter unrest society must adjust or exercise greater control over the protesters. Artificial intelligence and global warming will increasingl challenge the attractiveness of shifting production to cheap labour economies.

  • It is absolutely great to hear Prof. Harrari. I did an online course on Coursera, and it was So good- life changing  We get to understand the origins, where did we come from, how did we get here and where are we going. His work is absolutely a must read/watch/hear/absorb.
