Today we’re talking to Larry Rosen, Professor Emeritus and author of “The Distracted Mind: Ancient Brains in a High-Tech World.” We discuss the ways in which we’ve been losing the battle to modern-day distraction; how a “tech break” can save your focus; and the relationship between consciousness and AI.

All of this right here, right now, on the Modern CTO Podcast!

About Larry Rosen:

University professor for 45 years, retired from teaching in 2020. Still doing research on the impact of technologies on adults, children, adolescents. My current work is studying the impact of technology on health and performance and also looking at detailed data from smartphone apps to paint a picture of what teens and millennials are doing daily. I am intensely interested in neuroscience and how the brain handles distractions to learning and communication. My goals are to continue to do research, give speeches, and consult. My current quest is to try to decide what I want to be when I grow up. I had better figure it out soon since I am 70!
