Extended Intelligence: A New Global Mindset


The sheer pace of digital expansion, automation and AI is overwhelming. Fear of machines advancing beyond our comprehension and control are common. We cannot realize the potential of the partnership between man and machine without trust - and trust cannot be established in an environment of confusion and fear. To honor our values, machines must understand our values. To move past the "man vs. machine" narrative, a new dialog about the human, environmental and economic values that should drive our technologies is required. Join our internationally recognized panel to learn about the Extended Intelligence movement, which seeks to advance technology in a way that honors people, within and as part of the ecological, emotional and spiritual systems that transcend technology.
