Do you fully trust a teenager? Should you? Doesn’t it all depend on Trust? We have some big questions that we need to grapple with, most urgently the relationship between humankind and work. As much as everyone is concerned with their own livelihood and the challenges of automation, the question of defining consciousness is not […]
