Technology vs. Humanity: Unsere Zukunft zwischen Mensch und by Gerd Leonhard,Tim Cole

By Gerd Leonhard,Tim Cole

Alle Technologien sollen dem menschlichen Glück dienen

Der Buchtitel ist eher als Provokation und nicht als Prophezzeiung zu verstehen, denn Gerd ist ein Optimist was once unsere Zukunft betrifft.

Für ihn wäre „versus“ der schlimmste Fall, der nur dann eintreten könnte, wenn sich Technologien bzw. Technologiefirmen ohne Limits und Verantwortung verselbstständigen und selbstverherrlichen, additionally wenn Technologie vom Werkzeug zum Sinn wird, und wenn wir vergessen was once es heißt, Mensch zu sein.

Gerd hält ein negatives bzw. dystopisches Maschinen-Welt-Szenario zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt für unwahrscheinlich, aber er meint, dass wir uns auf eine neue und globale „digitale Ethik“ einigen müssen und ein kollektives Verständnis dafür entwickeln, used to be und wer wir in der Zukunft sein wollen.

In einem Idealbild für unsere Zukunft, könnte die Menschheit Technologie weiterhin beherrschen und dazu nutzen, die großen Herausforderungen wie Klimawandel, Krankheiten, Wasserversorgung, starvation und Energie zu lösen. Als Resultat der im Buch beschriebenen Megatrends, wie z.B. Automatisierung und Kognifizierung, könnten wir dann vor allem eines genießen: wir hätten mehr Zeit. Mehr Zeit für Tätigkeiten die am oberen Ende der Maslow-Pyramide der menschlichen Bedürfnisse angesiedelt sind, wie zum Beispiel soziale Interaktionen, Kreativität oder Selbstverwirklichung.

Gerd Leonhard schätzt unsere Zukunftschancen zu ninety Prozent positiv ein; doch muss exponentieller technologischer Fortschritt immer am kollektiven menschlichen Glück gemessen werden, welches Technologie schafft oder auch verringert. Wir müssen additionally dafür sorgen, dass die Gefahren der restlichen 10 Prozent nicht auch exponentiell zunehmen. Vielleicht kann dieses Buch dazu beitragen!
