The Future of Technology with Gerd Leonhard. Does technology hold the answer to a poverty-free future and the end of capitalism? European futurist, speaker and author Gerd Leonhard chats to us about the delicate relationship between humanity and technology over the next 30 years.

In this episode Mike asks: 01:20 What’s a futurist and why does it matter? 01:55 Are there any sci-fi movies that spring into your mind, when you think about the future of technology? 02:39 Let’s talk about ‘Her’ (2013). What does this tell us about where technology is going, how human and machine are starting to mesh? 04:00 The line between human and machine is getting very blurred isn’t it? 05:30 What are the main technological trends that are happening right now that are going to change the world over the next five to eight years? 07:15 How do we keep up with the speed technology is moving at, especially when it comes to our organisations that are typically pretty slow at moving? 07:47 Is the solution for us to become a machine? 08:41 What are we going to do, when we’re unemployed because of machines? What types of skills are we going to need to explore? 10:28 What are we going to do with all of the time that we have gained because of machine automation? 11:03 Is this new technology going to be equitable or will it just make the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’, so much further apart than they are now? 12:59 So, you have a book called, “Technology vs. Humanity.” Who’s going to win? Technology or humanity?
