So I though the future of work, the data society and machine intelligence story could be interesting. I don't have anything ready yet, but want to share a few links:
- Johan probably made me think about this when he wrote about technology, robots and MOOCs why his and my jobs are probably safe.
- I wrote about the knowledge sharing, co-working story last year, with reference to MOOCs.
- If you are still worried that open-education and MOOCs might disrupt your academic work, Acemoglu and some co-authors has a math model showing that web-based educational technologies will complement your work.
- Last week I also caught a Project Syndicate post on the displacement of workers by intelligent machines.
And of course I plan to mention movies: Gattaca, Minority report and Elysium. Any other good ones that anyone would like to recommend for machine intelligence driven future dystopia? For things turning out really bad there is Terminator and The Matrix. Battlestar Galactica? But maybe this is going too far from "the future of work" topic!
