Robot Overlordz: Ep 237 The Sofalarity and the Future of Work

I had the good fortune of being invited back onto the Robot Overlordz podcast for a third time. On this occasion, I was talking about the future of work. Several topics were discussed over the course of the podcast, including:

  • What is work and what might a world without it look like?
  • Depictions of a postwork future in science fiction, including Star Trek and Wall E (and the idea of the 'sofalarity')
  • The polarisation effect and its impact on the future of work
  • The politics of the basic income guarantee

And more. Check it out. I recommend listening the higher quality recording, which is available here.
