Technology’s rapid advance has undermined society’s foundations. As misinformation spreads, privacy vanishes, and counterfeit goods proliferate, science promises us further advances, from stronger artificial intelligence to neuralink implants and quantum computing. More upheaval is on its way.
But the same advances that have created these hard problems have also connected people the world over, democratized information access, and let small businesses expand nationally and even globally. And without cutting-edge technologies, we wouldn’t have the mRNA vaccines that are helping to curb a global pandemic.
This season we’re looking at the good, the bad, and the ugly of technology and examining the potential effects of governments attempting to rein in some of the largest companies' global influence.
