Jamie Susskind: How technology is changing politics
Jamie Susskind explains how the politics of the future will be shaped by the technology influencing our lives today.
In this episode of the Science Focus Podcast we speak to Jamie Susskind, barrister and author of the book Future Politics: Living Together in a World Transformed by Tech (£20, OUP), about the challenges governments face when confronted with new technologies, how AI is changing the way we’ll interact with politicians, and what government we’ll form on Mars.
