Daily: “Give technology a soul” – How to build a TECH UTOPIA

With new technology, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you become part of the road. What are the big topics in tech that we should be talking about – for our own prosperity and survival? King’s College Professor Mischa Dohler tells Alex Andreou how a real plan for tech can use hyperfast Wi-Fi to create an “internet of skills”. Are there any insurmountable barriers between us and technological nirvana? And how close are we to building an actual working Iron Man?

  • “We should use technology to automate jobs – but humanise work”
  • “Building a kilometre of road costs lots of money – adding digital fibre cost pennies. So every infrastructure investment needs a digital dimension.” 
  • “At some point we’ll hit a limit of, why do we actually need petabytes of data per second? Who’s watching this stuff?”
