ABOUT THIS LESSON

This lesson is part of the XPotential University’s Exponential Futures Curriculum (EFC).

In this lesson students will be introduced to the concept of Exponential Ethics. The emergence of increasingly powerful exponential technologies will enable humanity to create two very different types of future – one that is Utopian, and the other that is Dystopian. While in reality society will likely fall somewhere in between these two poles this lesson gives students the opportunity to question and debate how exponential technologies will affect society and the human experience for the better or worse.
