A Utopian or Dystopian future? The choice is ours
The twenty-first century is going to be the most disruptive, contentious period humanity has ever lived through. It will challenge our most sacred ideologies around politics, economics and social constructs. It will force humanity to adapt in ways we can't yet imagine. We are now living in a different world than a century ago, where algorithms and robots can take people’s jobs, where unemployment increases and social unrest is fueled by divisive social networks and a lack of economic opportunity, and where the impact of climate change is undeniable. In this episode of One Vision, Theo and Bradley speak with our good friend, Brett King, author of a new book, The Rise of Technosocialism: How Inequality, AI and Climate Will Usher in a New World. We discuss the context of what is happening in society, the technology behind these changes, and where we are headed next.
