Trends With Benefits


Oct 30, 2015

Today's episode features Nick Mokey, Ryan Waniata, Bill Roberson, Caleb Denison & Greg Nibler.

In this episode we delve into the philosophy of emerging tech. We've got some fantastic new contributors to Digital Trends and we start off with a question proposed by one.

David Weinberger is a senior researcher at the Barkman Center and his newest article is entitled "Should your self-driving car kill you to save a school bus full of kids?". That's a rather dramatic question, but it's honestly representative of the decisions that will have to be made in the programming of autonomous vehicles.

We follow that up with discussion of another article from a new contributor, Douglas Rushkoff. Douglas is Professor of Media Theory and Digital Economics at CUNY/Queens. The article is great and questions how the digital era has changed not only our viewing habits, but storytelling as a whole.

 

 

Finally, we bring up the advent of 3D Printing. Could it bring about a new age in the world of fashion and home design? Round table results were mixed, but please let us know what you think!
