From autonomous vehicles and delivery drones to unmanned grocery stores, we’ve seen a rise of people-replacing technologies within the last few years. As these changes continue, it’s time to start thinking about the post-robot, post-AI world. What will all of these displaced workers do? How will they get an income? Most of all, how will they find meaning? In this talk, New York Times best-selling author David Pogue explores where we are on the road to automated employees, preparing audiences practically and emotionally for that very near future. Examining both the societal and individual impacts, David looks at the challenges ahead and evaluates some of the solutions.

It doesn’t matter. The time for bickering is long gone. The world has warmed, natural systems are going haywire, and you should begin to prepare.
Most people assume that governments, corporations, and institutions are the only entities capable of developing protection against climate chaos. But for his new book How to Prepare for Climate Change, New York Times bestselling author David Pogue spent a year researching the answers to a new question: How can an individual prepare for the coming era of chaos?
Where to live. How to build. Where to invest. What to eat. What to grow. What to study. How to talk to your kids (and whether to have them). How to be medically prepared. And, as extreme-weather events become more commonplace in every state in America, how to prepare for flooding, wildfire, drought, hurricane, heat waves, and social breakdown.
This presentation is lively, current, eye-opening, filled with surprising revelations — and, ultimately, uplifting. After having our heads pounded day after day by depressing headlines, Pogue presents a breath of fresh air: A practical path forward that’s entirely within your own control. Read Less ^
In Pittsburgh, nobody sits at a red light anymore if there aren’t any other cars at the intersection. In Palo Alto, nobody clogs the streets driving around looking for parking; an app shows them where the open parking spots are. In Singapore, public cameras issue you a ticket automatically if you spit in public. Read More >
Welcome to smart cities, where cheap sensors and city-wide Internet let the moving parts of urban life talk to each other—and to city departments and city residents. The goal is a massive savings of money, time, and carbon emissions, not to mention improved public safety and convenience. The challenges: Funding, know-how, and striking the right privacy balance.
In this entertaining, informative crash course, five-time Emmy-winning tech columnist David Pogue traces the smart-city timeline—from the past (the smartphone, Internet of Things gadgets, smart buildings) to a vision of tomorrow’s cities—with examples, case studies, and a wry sense of humor.

When the world began staying at home, it became immediately apparent how this pandemic would be different from the 1918 flu pandemic: This time, we have the Internet. Read More >
Video chat apps like Zoom make possible virtual versions of every conceivable gathering: Meetings, school classes, music and theater performances, religious services, exercise classes, game nights, and even weddings.
But equally suddenly, questions arose about technology’s role in our new lifestyle. Is Zoom secure enough to trust? Can the Internet handle the strain of 300 million Americans streaming video simultaneously? Can our smartphones be used to trace the spread of the virus—and should they? And then there’s the elephant in the room: What about Americans who don’t have broadband Internet? How are they supposed to work and take their classes?
The number of “Internet-unserved” or "Internet-underserved” Americans is somewhere between 21 million (the government’s estimate) and a staggering 150 million people (analyst estimates). As it turns out, there are some important reasons why those estimates are so wildly different, and they pose a critical question: Is the Internet a necessity, like water and electricity? Or do we still consider it a luxury?
In this up-to-the-second presentation, CBS Sunday Morning/New York Times contributor David Pogue takes us on a deep dive into these questions—and the answers—with clarity and humor. Read Less ^
