Keynote at Sector 3.0 in Warsaw
I'll be speaking May 18, 2016 on "Humans in the digital world"
I'm excited to be traveling to Warsaw, Poland, this week to give a talk at the Sector 3.0 conference. This year's theme is "humantech" and I'll be talking about the potentially transformational impact that blockchain technologies may have on our civilization. Forget self-driving cars, this is where the real action is.
The event is taking place at the stunning Copernicus Center. In the afternoon of the 18th I'll also be speaking on Campus, about a five minute walk from the Center, on the general subject of reinventing democracy using modern technologies and--more importantly--our newly unfolding empirically-based understanding of human nature and cognitive science.
I've always wanted to visit Poland, where my family came from 140 years ago. Ironically, the weather in Warsaw this week is exactly the same as the weather in Toronto--cool, but warm enough to get out and about and enjoy spring in Europe. Which I full intend to do. Thanks to Jean Ekwa and the rest of the organizers of the conference for inviting me. I hope I make it worth their while.
