You don’t have to be a futurist to see the effects of near-constant connectivity, automation and machine intelligence. Looking around, you might wonder - what are humans good for? What types of intelligence do we need not just to make a living, but to make a life in a world where robots are eating our jobs?

Join our Professor of Connectivity Darl Kolb as we explore the new role of humans in a world full of machines.
