this was tomorrow’s economy
Computers, smart algorithms and robots are taking over our work while at the same time we are unable to stop swiping, binging and liking in our free time. Our lives are controlled over by data and technology. What do these deveolpments mean for our economy? And is our identity being hijacked by the online version of ourselves?
During this new Brainwash Weekend on April 25th we examined the place that work and technology occupies in our lives, and explore what the future of work might look like. We discussed these subjects with social psychologist Shoshana Zuboff, philosopher Haroon Sheikh, poet Mia You and economists Pavlina Tcherneva and Daniel Susskind.
