ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Inspired by his own misfortune related to the use of spatial technology, Cahan turned to utilizing it effectively in our modern world. In 2007, Dave sat down with his fellow Stanford Fellow Bruce Cahan to discuss the evolution of spatial technology from early maps to Google Earth as well as geocoded spatial statistics in cities.

Today spatial technology has expanded even more with constantly updating GPS like Waze and tracking like Find My Friends from Apple. With the increased uses of this tech, how can it be used in our society? Does it overstep personal privacy? Can it be used to build and design eroding coastlines in the face of climate change? Tune in to find out.

“The devil is in the details… you don’t want to enable more merchandising and direct mail fracas… but at the same time there are infinity uses for this spatial concern… folks using spatial to find each other” – Bruce Cahan

“Technology is, of course, a double edged sword. Fire can cook our food but also burn us.” – Jason Silva
