AI, automation & the economy: Jeff Sachs in conversation with Azeem Azhar

Great 45 minute podcast if you interested in tech, it’s influence on humanity and where it’s going.  Here’s the synopsis;

A discussion with Professor Jeffrey Sachs. Jeff is one of the world’s foremost thinkers on economic development; he advises the UN and a host of governments.

In a wide ranging podcast we talk about how technology has improved the lives of countless humans. We explore how automated systems will increasingly replace routine and highly-trained jobs. How will our societies cope with those changes? What will we do with the inequalities that will be increasingly produced by the technology revolution? What is the role of basic income? We even have some time to talk about Aristotle.

Thoughts on email

Just a quick thought on email.

Having a separate email account for work and another for personal email will make a massive difference to managing your inbox.

Taking it one step further, having an additional separate email account for “junk” email, like signing up for forums and other less-important stuff, will keep your personal inbox nice and tidy.
