Technology Addiction, or Welcome to the Dark Side of “The Force”

Speaker: Robert Lustig MD,MSL

Abstract:

Everyone is looking down. But especially kids. There is something unnatural about a 15 month old using an iPad to soothe him or herself. Everyone assumes this is just the natural progression of our “tech society”. But what if this is doing harm to us, and to our brains? And what if children are more vulnerable than adults? Numerous politicians are calling for “reining in” of the internet. Is this necessary?

We will answer five questions: 1) Is there such a thing as Tech Addiction? 2) Is it similar to or different than drug addiction? 3) Does technology lead to depression and suicide? 4) Have our minds been hacked? 5) Are children at more risk? 6) Is there anything that can be done about it?

The answers to these questions provide us a blueprint to harness technology for good, and not for ill.
