Will humanity pay a price for technology moving too fast?

  • Are you aware just how far technologies have come and what potential future capabilities might look like?
  • Do you know what kind of impact technologies like automation and artificial intelligence are having on the workforce and society?
  • Are we prepared for what comes next in technological advancement and possible changes we may face as a species?

Science fiction has captivated readers and audiences with apocalyptic futures ruled by machines. Dire predictions of technology run-amok usually draw sideways glances and chuckles, but recent developments in bionic exoskeletons and advanced robotics, for example, have forced many people to think twice.

  • Jennifer Neville, Associate Professor of Computer Science & Statistics
