The ESADE Alumni Boston Chapter is holding ''The Automation Paradox: Vision, Ethics and Dystopia'' a talk by ESADE professor Jonathan Wareham on Thursday October 19th at 6.30pm.
The world of automated automobiles, the Internet of Things and smart devices is entering our lives. Although these new technologies offer wondrous convenience, services and business opportunities, their huge capacity to gather highly personal/biometric data will enable product marketing so invasive that it will fundamentally change our concepts of human free will. Although increased automation offers greater efficiency, it also threatens to dumb down our professions. This presentation will take a thought-provoking look at the world of hyper-connected and automated devices and provide a positive and yet cautionary insight into what this means for us as consumers, entrepreneurs and managers.
We look forward to seeing you there!
