Driver in the Driverless Car : How Our Technology Choices Will Create the Future (MP3-CD) (Vivek Wadhwa
About this item
Technology is advancing faster than ever-but is it for better or for worse? On the one hand, astonishing technology developments from personalized genomics to self-driving cars could make our lives healthier, safer, and easier. On the other hand, those same technologies could create a frightening and alienating future. How can we make appropriate decisions about whether to adopt new technologies? Vivek Wadhwa and Alex Salkever propose that we ask three questions: Does the technology have the potential to benefit everyone equally? What are the risks and the rewards? And does the technology more strongly promote autonomy or independence? To showcase the power of these questions, they subject a host of new and potential technologies to them-but it's up to the reader to decide.
