Jamie Susskind - Future Politics: Living Together in a World Transformed by Tech — in conversation with Damir Marusic

Upcoming Event
Saturday, October 20, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Susskind’s thought-provoking analysis examines how technology will change politics, from its redefinition of basic terms like “power” and “freedom” to its role in guiding, determining, and even forcing specific behavior. Examining the present, Susskind foresees some of the implications of Big Data’s potential for gathering information and deterring or encouraging specific actions as well as for filtering our perception of the world so that the algorithms choose what we know, think, and feel. As the power of platforms continues to grow, the technology and those who control it will take charge, applying their algorithms to questions of social justice, allocating social goods, and organizing people into hierarchies. Susskind, a practicing barrister in London, will be in conversation with Damir Marusic, associate publisher of The American Interest.
