Benjamin Shestakofsky on Human Work in an Automated Future

This week, The Annex meets Benjamin Shestakofsky, a doctoral student from UC Berkeley, and soon to be faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania.  We discuss Benjamin’s 2017 article in Work and Occupations, “Working Algorithms: Software Automation and the Future of Work”, and the broader subject of human workers’ role in an automated future.  We also discuss proposals to include a citizenship question on the Census, Amy Wax’s controversial statements of black student performance, and the Cambridge Analytics scandal.
