Davos 2016: A Brief History of Industrial Revolutions – Professor Ian Goldin


Published on Apr 11, 2016

The rise of machine intelligence will require humans to reinterpret our relationship with the world in the most fundamental way since the Renaissance. In this presentation for the World Economic Forum’s Davos meeting in January 2016, Ian Goldin – Director of the Oxford Martin School, Professor of Globalization and Development at the University of Oxford – looks at how new ideas in the Renaissance encountered pushback, and the lessons we should learn about balancing techno-optimism with realism.
