Hello from the Consilience Project,
The far-ranging 3 hour conversation explored, among other topics, how AI-powered, advertising-driven social media platforms pose a significant threat to democracies, and how exponential technologies could instead be used to maximize human well-being and help build better free and open societies.
Among the solutions Daniel and Tristan discussed was the example of Audrey Tang and the Taiwanese government's adoption of participatory technologies to strengthen civil society. This case study was the topic of a recent Consilience Project article, which you can read below.
So far the responses we’ve received on the podcast have been very positive. We hope you can take the time to listen and share it with your networks. As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback as they are important to us.
Thank you for your interest and continued support.
