What is Automation?

Why are we so frightened or thrilled about automation and the future of work? What histories and philosophical concepts affect how we think and talk about automation? Jesse Ramirez, Assistant Professor of American Studies at the University of St.Gallen (HSG), sheds light on the way we experience automation. And he explains how we can get rid of the thought that automation changes our lives automatically.

Jesse Ramirez, Assistenzprofessor für American Studies an der Universität St.Gallen (HSG), erklärt, wie wir uns von der Furcht lösen können, dass Automatisierung unser Leben automatisch verändert.
