Description and links to more information:
Shoshana Zuboff’s The Age of Surveillance Capitalism reveals a world in which technology users are no longer customers but the raw material for an entirely new industrial system. Named “Notable Book of the Year” by The New York Times, Surveillance Capitalism examines the ways in which a global architecture of behaviour modification threatens human nature in the twenty-first century.
Zuboff will discuss insights and arguments from her book, with an introduction by Gillian K. Hadfield, director of the Schwartz Reisman Institute for Technology and Society.
