Eric Schmidt On The New Digital Age
In this conversation with Bryan Appleyard from May 2013, he sets out the themes of his new book 'The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business', which he has co-authored with Jared Cohen, director of Google Ideas.
- new technologies that will change lives: information systems that increase productivity, thought-controlled motion technology that will revolutionise medical procedures, and near-perfect translation systems that will allow us to communicate with anyone on the planet.
- the threat to privacy and security: how much of these will we have to sacrifice to be part of the new digital age?
- the politics of the hyperconnected world: who will be more powerful, the citizen or the state?
- the threat of cyberterrorism: will technology increase or undermine our security?
