ADAPTING TO EVER-FASTER CHANGE
- One of the reasons that this is such a pivotal time in history is because of the rate of progress of increasingly-powerful and ever-more-consequential technologies.
- Artificial Intelligence, being applied to ever-more data, is changing the very nature of society. Advances in genetics & biotechnology gives us the power to change living organisms, or even create new life.
- The power of these technologies increases as computing & data processing power increases, and as we get ever more connected. Technology is accelerating itself - we call this the Superconvergence.
- We need to work together to understand the implications of new technologies, and to shape their development and uses to the best ends possible.
- This is ultimately a global discussion, but one which we must also have - and drive - at a national level, both to learn and adapt, and to play our part in building a better future, in relation to technology.
- We need to build awareness and engagement; so, please share this idea, page & platform on Social Media. Promote it locally in your community. Tell your employer, school, colleagues, friends. Shout it loud!
- And other than that - just dive in, let's see what we can do, together. To begin, connect with the the community (see the Community button, below). Let’s get started!
WeCanCork is funded by our Corporate Sponsors to empower their teams & communities to transform lives, society & the planet.
