All around us, technology is changing everything. Many can remember having to go to their local video store to rent a movie. Now, with the click of a button from the comfort of your own living room, you can access an endless amount of streaming movies. Even the simpler things in life, like flipping on a light switch, are being replaced by technology. You no longer have to lift a finger to turn on the lamp; technology can help you illuminate the room just by saying, “Alexa, turn on the lights.”
As we think about the future, how will improved technology affect society in the years to come?
On this episode of AIIM on Air, your host Kevin Craine explores this topic with Mike Steep, Executive Director of Stanford University’s Disruptive Technology & Digital Cities Program. Hear their discussion around Mike’s book, "First Light of Day: A Cautionary Tale of Our Future," described as two things:
“First, it’s a compelling story wrapped around a disquieting look at life in 2045 in the aftermath of a technology revolution that profoundly changed the nature of society. Second, it’s a non-fiction look at the technologies available today that make this revolution possible and even probable.”
Also on the episode, Kevin explores an AIIM Member Case Study. You'll hear about Crawford Technologies and how they helped a financial services company design, implement, and issue documents in accessible PDF format to their blind, partially sighted, and cognitively disabled customers.
Tune in for all this and more on this episode of AIIM on Air.
