Your computer will use YOU

In this talk I take the audience in a journey into the mind of one of the most notorious terrorists of the 20th century, the Unabomber, as a starting point to introduce a cognitive model of human activity as a tool to understand the impacts of technology in societies.

I then proceed to point out what are tools we have to face these extreme changes and what is the role that IT professionals should have in this transition to help society make informed and conscious decisions, by challenging them to become techno-philosophers and actively engage in the debate.

I expect that at the end of the presentation the audience will be much more aware of the revolution they themselves are ushering, the opportunities and consequences, and by doing so motivate them to actively engage in the debate that will shape the societies of the coming future.
