I am currently reading a lot on the emergence of a digital society and what it means for the future of work, living and inequality. Especially Jeremy Rifkin’s Zero Marginal Cost Society and The Second Machine Age by Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee are worth reading. Mind Change by Susan Greenfield is also on my reading list.
If you only have 15 minutes and want to get a quick impression of what the future challenges of technological development are likely to look like I recommend the Humans Need Not Apply video below. I don’t think the video editors quite get it right in all respects – creative tasks for instance cannot be easily computerised in my view – but it is a very useful introduction.
