This Funzing Experience:
Technology has been making politics more bitter and more divisive. Manipulative social media, all-seeing surveillance, and powerful AI algorithms can target voters more precisely than ever before, playing on our fears, and causing us in many cases to vote against our best interests.

But could technology, used more wisely, actually lead us to a radically better politics? That's the vision of David Wood, Chair of London Futurists. He argues that the fruits of the fourth industrial revolution could lead us to a world of positive super-intelligence, super-health, super wellbeing, and super-democracy.

In this talk, he outlines a technoprogressive roadmap to avoid the politics of chaos and to accelerate a sustainable abundance with no-one left behind.
