Kevin LaGrandeur on Surviving the Machine Age

December 03, 2017

In this video Kevin LaGrandeur, co-editor of Surviving the Machine Age, discusses topics from his book, including the mitigation of technological unemployment and how social scientists can better engage with emerging technology.

Kevin’s book, Surviving the Machine Age: Intelligent Technology and the Transformation of Human Work, examines the current state of technologically-caused unemployment, and attempts to answer the question of how to proceed into an era beyond technological unemployment.

The Social Science Matters campaign marks Palgrave Macmillan’s commitment to championing original and authoritative research within the Social Sciences. It provides a platform for our researchers, commissioning editors and practitioners to discuss developments in the social science community and to promote research impact.
