Explore the fascinating—and often surprising—psychological and sociological implications of emerging technologies. Tune in each month for a new set of insights.
- There is so much information out there about artificial intelligence, machine learning, neural networks, and really just technology in general. A lot of it's important, too, performance, optimization, accuracy, how to help the world, what parts are needed, how do we make machines smarter, all that information is available with a quick Google search. Well, guess what? In this course, I'm not going to focus on any of those things. Rather, I want to talk to you about how technology makes you feel and not just you, but people around you.
What are the psychological and sociological implications and consequences of this rapidly changing world? We don't make predictions the same way we used to. We leave a huge data trail on the internet. Heck, we'll be able to alter DNA in a decade. How does all this stuff make us feel? How does it affect our psychology? In each episode of this monthly series, I'll take on a topic that's facilitated by emerging technologies. I'll briefly describe what it is and what impact it has on the way society functions, thinks, and most importantly, feels.
That's the stuff that's most important to me. I'll also interview someone prolific and influential to that topic area about the psychological and sociological implications so you can hear what other people have to say. My name is Yash Patel, and I produce a ton of content around data science for LinkedIn Learning. What I've found is that we focus on the tools and collaboration and workspace environment when it comes to emerging tech. Basically, how humans work in the tech space. I want to flip that and think about how the technology influences humans, individually and as a tribe.
So what's the holdup? The water's warm, jump on in.
