#1736 - Tristan Harris & Daniel Schmachtenberger

Tristan Harris is a former Google design ethicist, co-founder and president of the Center for Humane Technology, and co-host of the Center for Humane Technology’s “Your Undivided Attention” podcast with Aza Raskin.

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.
