The future will be awesome, but this talk was absolutely terrifying. Great balance of humor and horrifying (possible) future.

This talk is basically Black Mirror: The Keynote. So good.

It was an interesting peek into the further. Paul’s talk was scary, funny and informative at the same time.

Ethics in software is increasingly becoming the most vital topic of conversation. This talk approached it well and blended a solid amount of appropriate humor to make the topic easily relatable.

Wow, what a great talk. Lots of interesting and thought provoking parts to it, especially questions like "would you buy an unethical car?"

A fantastic talk to end a conference on.

This look at the ethical choices that advancing technology will bring is thought-provoking, engaging, and darkly humorous. Great stuff.
