Use the past as a guide to consider possibilities for life in the future. This class is a continuation of the fall 2017 TED Talks theme, with all new subject matter and discussion topics. Video presentations from film directors/writers, research and practicing doctors, foreign policy experts, computer scientists, technologists, biologists, historians, psychologists, and other scholars will form the context for discussion. Topics being considered for the semester include: a different way to rewrite history; the short and long term impacts of artificial intelligence on civilization; the Internet as a failed utopia; the work world of the future with a look at the gig economy; human behavior in changing times; and conversations about a guaranteed income. Other topics include: DNA editing and ethical limits for genetic research and experimentation; changes in the governance of the Western world; and China in the 21st century.
