Being Human in a Digital Age

Synopsis
Video webcast. What can humans do that machines will not soon be doing too? In this event, author Tom Chatfield explains why he believes this is the wrong question to ask - and we should look instead at what it is that humans love and demand to do, and where the unique value of human experience lies in a digital age. Chatfield’s recent Live This Book is a print-only journal exploring everyday habits, interactions and cognition - and he explains why he turned to pen and paper to address the future of human-machine interactions, and what it means to thrive in a digital age. [47 minutes].
