"New infrastructures are being designed to remove power from the people who designed them."


In this keynote session, Bitcoin developer Mike Hearn talks on the topic ”Fighting for the right to be ruled by machines”. He outlines a possible scenario over the next 50 years, in which an ever worsening political situation results in some people deciding that only computers/robots can be trusted to control the critical infrastructure of society (cars, planes, mobile networks, legal systems etc) and therefore that the people currently in charge of them need to be evicted from those positions of power.
