Digital Disruption and Its Discontents

Digital technologies have completely transformed the way we think, work, socialise, and interact with colleagues. But the obvious benefits haven’t alleviated the concern we’ve had since the Industrial Revolution: that technology will render people in the workplace redundant. Technology theorist and author Tom Chatfield defines digital disruption today and examines five key steps to thinking differently (and more positively) about people and technology.

"We could spend a good deal of time thinking — and worrying — about what humans can’t do as well as machines. But instead let’s think about the unique qualities, traits, and values that can help us engage successfully with disruption."
