5G: Cause for Concern a talk by Jeremy Naydler Saturday 14th September 7pm St Laurence’s Church, Stroud

+ songs by Earthwards

The rollout of 5G (or fifth generation wireless interconnectivity) is part of a long-term project to establish a global “electronic ecosystem”, which will support the further development of artificial intelligence systems and the Internet of Things. The underlying aim is to create a so-called “smart planet”. But does the planet need to be made smart? What will the effects be on living creatures, including us? And is the Internet of Things really the future we want?

Jeremy Naydler, PhD, is a philosopher and gardener deeply concerned about the impact of electronic technologies on our inner life and on our relationship to nature. He is author of In the Shadow of the Machine (Temple Lodge, 2018).
