the future human: Homo conexus
What does it mean to be human? Human in a digital age? How do we ensure our existence when artifical intelligence may surpass our own abilies? It’s all about the way we are wired to be. Making the shift from Homo Sapiens, where we distinguish ourselves by being wise, to Homo Conexus, where we stand out because of our connecting abilities.
Yes, for sure, we need to embrace what technology brings us. We need to understand the opportunities and put them to work. But the key thing is understanding and revisiting what makes us human. Like professor Solomon says: To go back to our natural essence. To what we have forgotten. Our ability, but also our NEED for being connected. To make way for Homo Conexus.
