Thesis Updates

Ali is curious about what a hyper-productive economy would look like. Suppose that technology really did make us super productive. What would society be like? How would we think about work?

Alexa wants to do a multidisciplinary project involving philosophy, behavioral economics, and a few other things to examine some of the worries we have about big data and technology.

We didn’t hear from Brian or Clyde.
