Where do you stand on the scale between technomania and nostalgia for the lost world ?

MAY 26th, 2018 / Bangalore


From inventing wheels to now helping us document every possible note we read, speak or listen, technology has evolved to a great extent. Every time a machine is produced with a smart idea, human activities get smarter. In this constant progressive era of technology, what do you think the tomorrow of technology will look like? Will the robotic world be at par of humans or instead overtake us?

We know the machines that can think, learn and adapt are almost here, considerably replacing humans in many activities. How far is the future where the machines will significantly replace humans? What should we do about it, can we do anything about it? TedxSarjapuraroadSalon envisions to provide a platform to all the thinkers, doers and influencers, to enlighten the community about the future of technology and provide solutions to conundrums of this fast-pace progress.

Do we have an alternative path? Is the horizon of technology clear to us? Or are we in a technology bubble which that is at the brink to burst?
