Can technology solve our big problems? | #TED Talk

By on Dec 7, 2013 in Articles

Jason Pontin, the editor-in-chief and publisher of MIT Technology Review, is the speaker in today’s TED Talk.

This talk offers a valuable insight into the use of technology to solve the world’s problems. The massive growth in technology in recent decades has shown us, in stark relief, that the challenged we believed we faced, and which we chose to view as the result of undeveloped technology, actually have far deeper and sometimes more sinister roots.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the result has been a decline in faith in what technology can do for us today. Furthermore, in the face of almost overwhelming challenges, we seem to stand transfixed, unable to progress. The very tools created to improve and enhance our lives have, inadvertently, stifled our growth.

This need not be the case. Technology plays a vital and valuable role on the solutions of today, and so must we.
