From facial recognition tracking us, to AI taking over human work, to overall issues of data privacy, recent headlines have made much about all there is to fear from technology. In this panel, we take a step back to examine where – and if – that fear actually exists. Examining the results of a global survey, we will explore individuals’ feelings about the effects specific technologies have on their lives and careers – do they expect help or hindrance? The discussion will highlight survey results and engage with experts on technology, humans, and society to form a basis for understanding and a road map for managing technology anxiety (or enthusiasm!).
