不会让人下岗的科技

发自旧金山——这是一个大众恐慌自动化工业会让人类工作岗位消失的时代,媒体上充斥着悲观的标题,警告机器人的大规模应用会让某些职业门类彻底不复存在。但这种宿命论似乎在假设我们根本无力驾驭那些被创造来改善我们生活——事实上,是我们的工作——的东西。

其实我们已经可以在某些在线人才平台上发现一些科技有潜力帮助解决工作问题的证据。数码平台已经令经济中的许多部门发生了转型。比如零售业原本只服务于一城一地,如今却被亚马逊和阿里巴巴构建的在线市场平台就在某种程度上重塑了。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic.
