The Tech@Work MOOC aims to ignite a conversation about how emerging technology will change the nature of work and the workplace, and impact society more broadly. While technology has always played a significant role in modernizing the workplace, the speed and magnitude of technological progress and innovation is now far greater than ever before. In the last decade or so, the proliferation of mega digital corporations such as Facebook, Google, Amazon and Alibaba, and new technologies such as smartphones, robotics, drones, 3D printing and cloud computing, are transforming human society and the economy. These changes are profoundly altering the world of work and there are recurring concerns that new technology will put jobs at risk in an increasingly networked society and digital economy. Technology@Work focuses on these challenges, looks at the dilemmas presented by innovation from different perspectives and discusses its growing impact.
