Global: Technology – saviour or curse?
It’s undeniable that we’re living in an epoch of technological transformation. And one that is unprecedented in history. With the creation of thinking machines, we face technologies that could end up competing directly with what it means to be human. This changes the rules of the game. And the policy responses to cope will have to be equally innovative. There is a number of structural shifts that are happening in lockstep, most of which are rooted in demography. Disentangling these interwoven threads will be difficult. Explaining the impact of these changes to an electorate whose lives are being disrupted will be a task of even greater magnitude.
