The Future of Work: Technology and Uncertainty?
Prague Municipal Library, Mariánské nám. 1, Prague 1
Guest: Mary L. Gray
Jobs that rely on various apps are on the rise, but it is more often the owners of the technology who benefit from this growth than those who carry out the work. Additionally, these “invisible” workers often lack basic working rights and protections. Is it possible to reverse this trend and use it for our good? How will work itself change over the coming years? The guest speaker is the American anthropologist Mary L. Gray, who focuses on the ethics of new forms of employment.
The debate will follow the screening of the film, you can't buy admission just for the debate.
