About this Event

For the third time in the history of humanity, civilization is undergoing epic cultural transformation—a cultural phase change.

Artificial intelligence and virtual environments are creating a world of abundance in which our institutions are changing form, obey different rules, use different methods, and behave contrary to our intuition.

We are at the dawn of the Autonomous Revolution, a technological revolution as decisive as the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions. In this revolution, autonomous machines will drive transformations as discontinuous as going from barter to money and markets or from wandering tribes to cities.

The speakers will discuss why increases in productivity no longer translate into growth in the GDP and how zero cost one-to-many communications have been turned into productivity tools for cybercrime and antisocial behavior. Many of the proposed solutions--such as monetizing internet usage and restricting free speech -- are extremely controversial.
