Stephen Fry, actor, comedian, journalist, author, tech enthusiast and polymath delivered his Shannon lecture "The future of humanity and technology". With over 150 film, TV, and audio performances and over 20 written works, as well as over 12 million Twitter followers, Fry’s wit and wisdom have been read, seen or heard around the globe over multiple generations.
Fry explores the impact on humanity of emergent technologies and, in classic Bell Labs style, looks back at human history to understand the present and the future. He will outline how humans have adapted to revolutionary changes in all aspects of life over the past millennia, and uses this as a basis for conjecture about the future of human existence in the machine or industrial internet age, and how best to navigate these murky technological and societal waters.
