Speaker: Eric Schmidt Executive Chairman of Google
Eric Schmidt is one of the leading visionaries of our time. He has taken Google from a small start-up to one of the world’s most influential companies.
On 25th May, in an event hosted by Intelligence Squared in partnership with TLG, he will set out the themes of his new book The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business, which he has co-authored with Jared Cohen, director of Google Ideas. He will discuss
•New technologies that will change lives: information systems that increase productivity, thought-controlled motion technology that will revolutionise medical procedures and near-perfect translation systems that will allow us to communicate with anyone on the planet.
•The threat to privacy and security: how much of these will we have to sacrifice to be part of the new digital age?
•The politics of the hyperconnected world: who will be more powerful, the citizen or the state?
•The threat of cyberterrorism: will technology increase or undermine our security?
