SHARING AMERICA'S TECH NEWS FROM THE VALLEY TO THE ALLEY

VIDEO: TED Talks DANIEL SUAREZ

Why you should listen to him:

While working as a software developer, Daniel Suarez self-published Daemon, a cyber-thriller depicting a future where society is radically reshaped by disruptive technologies. It struck a chord — and so did the sequel, Freedom (TM) — rocketing Suarez into the pantheon of sci-fi prophets.

In his 2012 novel Kill Decision, Suarez digs into the consequences of technology that’s here to stay: autonomous bots and drones programmed to be lethal. Suarez argues that as we cede more control to software, we gamble with the very essence of democracy itself. How can we establish sane guidelines for technology that could easily outstrip our control?

“‘Kill Decision’ is an eyes-wide-open, eyebrows raised, head shaking warning. The book may have come to a satisfactory end … but the real story is unfolding as you read this, with technologies both real and under development.”

Enjoy.

Thank you, TiA
