Future Self with Pete Cohen

Mar 12, 2019

Technology is everywhere. From our phones, to cars, workplaces and homes, artificial intelligence (AI) exists and shapes our lives. Is this a good thing? Or does this affect the human condition? In this episode, we will debate the role of AI versus ‘ancient intelligence’ – guidance and ‘tools’ from human sources.
Humans have always looked to improve the quality of their lives, even back in ancient times. Ancient philosophers were aware that in order to become the best version of yourself, you need to live with virtues (Aristotle) and this is still highly relevant today. However, unlike ancient people, modern humans have new tools in the form of technology and AI which are also trying to capture our attention.
From machines playing board games in 1950s, society is expected to move to an AI driven world of convenience. But what impact will this have on us? Will this be different for millennials versus baby boomers? And does our dependence on technology potentially explain differences between groups?
Pete explores the link between technology usage and happiness and explains why happiness has plateaued since 1950s, despite more disposable cash and choices. Since the advent of AI, our decision making abilities have been reduced and increased multitasking and Pete describes why we need to take bold action if we are to regain our ability to live life to the fullest.
