ThrowForward Thursday 90: Aaarrrghhh, The Robots Are Coming
Updated: Feb 26
A common theme as people react to many technology advances is fear. Our instinct as humans is to be afraid of what we don’t know, and our brains are programmed to see something unexpected as a threat before it can process the opportunity. This is how many people see a world filled with robots: a future to be feared. This ThrowForward Thursday episode invites you to come and imagine a world made better by brilliant robots. Next week, in our new approach in Season 3, we’ll help you apply these ideas and learn to think like a futurist - overcoming the fear instinct and learning to see opportunities.
