Featuring Vinton Cerf, Neil Gershenfeld, Tim Wu, and Alex Wright
Disruptive technologies uproot culture, can precipitate wars and even topple empires. By this measure, human history has seen nothing like the Internet. Pioneers of the digital revolution examine the Internet's brief but explosive history and reveal nascent projects that will shortly reinvent how we interact with technology - and each other. From social upheaval and ever-shifting privacy standards to self driving cars and networked groceries, this eye-opening program provides a stunning glimpse of what's around the corner.
