The Impact of Intelligent Tools on the US Economy


This video explores the debate around the impact of intelligent tools and platforms; to displace workers and create a crisis; or transform work and create new work opportunities. Here are a couple of quotes from the video:

“It comes down to a set of choices that must be made. We argue that we must proceed in a way that allows citizens in their multiple roles as producers, workers and consumers to participate in shaping their future rather than just allowing it to happen to them. 

We use the term intelligent tools – tools are instruments under the control of the people rather than something that comes at them from outside.”
