Doubling Down

: Preserving Our Humanity in the Digital Age

Are the big digital technology companies actually modifying our behavior? Will that be the means to a beneficial end? We are inside a global-scale experiment in data gathering about human behavior. We have devices on us all the time. The devices give us real time feedback about our actions and provide that information to companies that are vying for our attention. Is this model of our society sustainable? Is it contributing to the demise of democracy occurring before our very eyes?

Join Jaron Lanier, the “father of VR” and bestselling author Sue Halpern, in conversation with Marcelo Gleiser, physicist and director of the Institute for Cross Disciplinary Engagement at Dartmouth College, to talk about doubling down on being human, a step that just might rescue our world – and ourselves.

Funded by the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Engagement (ICE) at Dartmouth College through generous support provided by the John Templeton Foundation. Free, thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.
