Shoshana Zuboff; Christopher Lydon
Susan Spurlock (email@example.com, 617-994-6899)
Please join acclaimed scholar and author Shoshana Zuboff, Ph.D., Harvard Business School professor emerita on the publication of her new book, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight For a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power and Moderator Christopher Lydon, radio host of WBUR's Open Source.
Surveillance capitalism is the foundation of a new economic order. Firms compete on the manufacture of "prediction products" traded in lucrative new "behavioral futures markets." Surveillance capitalism's proprietary digital architectures -- what Shoshana Zuboff calls "Big Other" -- are designed to capture and control human behavior for competitive advantage in these new markets, as the production of goods and services is subordinated to a new "means of behavioral modification" that favors private market outcomes free of democratic oversight or control.
THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
