In December 2010, I flew out to Washington D.C. to give a short talk at TED. Here is the result of that journey. Thanks to everyone who helped with the speech and gave feedback. It was an honor to be able to share the stage with so many amazing people.
About this talk
Technology is evolving us, says Amber Case, as we become a screen-staring, button-clicking new version of homo sapiens. We now rely on “external brains” (cell phones and computers) to communicate, remember, even live out secondary lives. But will these machines ultimately connect or conquer us? Case offers surprising insight into our cyborg selves.
