Jason Silva - We Are the Gods Now (Festival of Dangerous Ideas)

Has our invention and mastery of increasingly powerful technology turned humans into gods? From the destructive potential inherent in nuclear technology to the understanding of the building blocks of life represented by the sequencing of the human genome, our technologies have given us the power to create and destroy at a human and planetary scale. Futurist and filmmaker Jason Silva considers the responsibility inherent in this power, and the role these technological human-gods in our understanding of the world.
