"The Future of Work: Artificial Intelligence And The (Vanishing?) Future Of Work": Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) - 50+.

  community member   < less Thursday

Will artificial intelligence (AI) take away jobs or usher in a prosperous utopia? Will self-driving cars reduce our use of fossil fuels or accelerate emissions? What will a college degree be worth when knowledge work can be done by machine? This talk considers these and other questions through the lens of technology's "Law of Amplification." Paradoxically, what is needed most in a world of advanced technology is greater attention to human values.
Presenter Professor Kentaro Toyama is W. K. Kellogg Professor of Community Information at the University of Michigan School of Information, a fellow of the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at MIT, and author of Geek Heresy: Rescuing Social Change from the Cult of Technology. In previous lives, Kentaro taught at Ashesi University in Ghana and co-founded Microsoft Research India, where he did research on the application of information and communication technology to international development.
