WORLD WITHOUT MIND

UNSW CENTRE FOR IDEAS AND CARRIAGEWORKS PRESENT

WORLD WITHOUT MIND

THE EXISTENTIAL THREAT OF BIG TECH

We all know that today’s tech giants have transformed the world of knowledge and information, but Franklin Foer argues that this transformation has gone so far that it endangers our ability to think. We love our tech toys, tools and networks but what are we sacrificing for their daily convenience? As the big four – Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon – get bigger, they consume more and more of our attention. Privacy, contemplation and autonomous thought are just some of the casualties. Are we, as Foer suggests, on our way to a world without mind?
