Are you Futureproofed? – Kevin Roose & Freedom Matters

Kevin Roose on Freedom Matters podcast

Join Kevin Roose on Freedom Matters where we discuss the future of work, in a world of automation. 

A.I. is everywhere. Jobs are being automated. Algorithms run your life. What are you doing about it?” (excerpt from Futureproof by Kevin Roose)

In this episode, we welcome Kevin Roose, an award-winning technology columnist for the New York Times and the New York Times bestselling author of three books: Futureproof, Young Money and The Unlikely Disciple. 

He has also hosted Rabbit Hole, a New York Times produced podcast about internet culture. He writes and speaks regularly on many topics, including automation and AI, social media, disinformation, cybersecurity, and digital wellness.

In this extended 30 minute episode we discuss: 

  • his own tortured relationship with technology and why he describes himself as a sub-optimist, 
  • what led him to write Futureproof, and what it’s all about, 
  • the nine rules which will help us to reclaim autonomy in an age of AI
