REPORT AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD ABOVE IS THE BOOK'S CHAPTER ALL ABOUT THE FUTURE OF WORK & EMPLOYMENT - KINLDY OFFERED FREE OF CHARGE BY OUR GUEST AUTHOR, RICHARD WATSON 

In the 1960s we dreamed of flying cars and moon hotels; today what we've ended up with are status updates and cat videos. The next 50 years will be about the relationship between people and technologies. These inventions will undoubtedly change our lives, but the question is: to what end?

Key takeaways:

  • What do we want these technologies to achieve on our behalf?
  • How will they transform the media, the economy, health care, education, work, and the home?
  • What are the effects of technology on every area of our lives?

In short: what kind of lives do we want to lead?

Join us for a witty but critical discussion with Richard Watson, author of the book Digital vs Human.

“The issues he addresses are pertinent, the questions he asks are incisive, and the ideas he assembles are tantalising.” Dr Jules Goddard, Fellow, London Business School
