Public Program with David Levy '71 "No Time to Think"

In the last 20 to 25 years, the world has experienced a full-fledged technological transformation. With over 6 billion active mobile phone subscriptions and the widespread use of social media and online educational resources, there are few limits on the amount of time one can spend interacting with the world via today’s high-tech tools.
This near-constant absorption and dissemination of information has sparked progress and collaboration on many fronts. However, this perpetual stimulation has one other important consequence: humans are left with very little time to actually think.
David Levy ‘71, a Professor at the University of Washington’s Information School, explores this phenomenon in a Rockefeller Center lecture, “No Time to Think.” Levy will explore the significance of overwhelming external stimuli and information and present tactics that are currently being explored to moderate this new technological reality. An expert in the ethics of information technology and its affect on quality of life, Levy proposes solutions to what is known as ‘overload’ through contemplative practices.
