Artificial intelligence is already shaping our work and daily life – but we have the power to decide whether the future will be a utopia or dystopia. Panelists Annalee Newitz and Andrea Dehlendorf discussed the impacts of AI on workers, who bears the burden of automation and job transformations, and how we can take control of our own technology. Moderated by Stephanie Bell from PAI.
