Yuval Harari at the World Economic Forum: Will the Future be Human?

Some of you may know I’m a big fan of Prof. Yuval Harari’s and, at this point, it is fair to say that his books Sapiens and Homo Deus have had a more profound effect on me than those of Ray Kurzweil. Last week Yuval Harari made his Davos debut at the World Economic Forum annual meeting. He presented at multiple events, which were live-streamed or filmed and can now be watched online.

Taking to the main Congress Hall stage directly after Angela Merkel’s speech and before Emmanuel Macron’s, Prof. Harari spoke about the big challenges presented by data in the era of technological revolution. In my view this talk is a must watch because it raises many of the major issues surrounding the rise of big data that we will have to resolve if we are to prosper in the 21st century. Check it out and let me know what you think:

Yuval Harari: Will the Future be Human?

What can we learn from a history of the future?

Historian Yuval Harari takes us on a journey through technological development and challenges leaders to develop a substantive vision of what it means for society, politics, religion and ideology.

After his Congress Hall presentation, Prof. Harari answered questions about his ideas and writing from journalists and participants.
