Examining the global impact of technology
                                          OUR PURPOSE

Future Talk is a cable TV show that's produced at the Midpeninsula Media Center in Palo Alto, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley, and seen on numerous stations in the U.S. and abroad.

Technological progress is changing the world very rapidly, but we haven't fully thought through the implications of these changes, which contain perils as well as promises. Each episode of Future Talk covers an area of rapid change, such as medical technology, energy technology or information technology, and tries to see where these changes are leading us. Rather than blindly embracing every new technology, we try to see the broader impact of that technology, anticipate potential problems and seek ways to mitigate risks.
