In the end, our challenge is to be great ancestors.
Byron Reese is an entrapreneur, public speaker, author, currently the CEO and publisher of Gigaom, a leading technology research company. As a technologist and futurist, Mr. Reese brings his passion for history and philosophy to the readers shining a light on social dilemmas that we already face, and will face, as humans. His most recent book, "The Fourth Age", explores the essence of humanity through the lenses of philosophy applied to technological change, using an objective—yet positive—light on how the coming age of machine automation and AI will reshape our future, potentially ending war, ignorance, disease, hunger, and poverty—while also exploring less favorable scenarios that humanity should do its best to avoid.
