As the power of the tech giants grows ever greater and science is seen to despoil the planet and use ever greater resources, many are increasingly critical of science,  Yet no one is handing in their technology.  

Should we stop complaining about big tech and science and recognise and welcome the many improvements to our lives that they have brought?  Or are the changes brought about by science and technology profoundly damaging to our personal well being and to the planet - and should we be seeking to rein in their power before it is too late?

Author of the bestsellingThe Precipice Toby Ord, popular science TV presenter Dallas Campbell, Stanford psychiatrist Anna Lembke and theoretical physicist and founder of Empathetic Technologies Fotini Markopoulou debate whether big tech will be our downfall.
