How to fix the future
So how do we fix the future? After the huge changes of the Industrial Revolution, civilized societies remade nineteenth-century capitalism into a more humane version of itself. In his keynote, Andrew Keen will shed light on how to solve the problems of surveillance capitalism, big data monopolists, irresponsible Silicon Valley billionaires, fake news, online anger and loneliness, mass technological unemployment, digital addiction and the existential risk of smart algorithms.
