CapX in conversation with Jamie Susskind

07/11/2018 - 07/11/2018

From the impact of social media on debate and the way in which democracy is threatened by the web to the upheavals and innovations that AI promises to deliver, technology is transforming politics.

Jamie Susskind, the author of Future Politics, argues this transformation is so profound that the single most important political question is no longer about the proper role of the state. Instead, he argues, it is the extent to which our lives should be directed and controlled by powerful digital systems — and on what terms?

CapX are delighted to welcome Jamie to the their Westminster offices to discuss his fascinating and important new book and the vital questions it raises about the ways in which technology is changing the world.

CapX’s editor Oliver Wiseman will be talking to Jamie at 6.30PM on Wednesday, November 7th at 57 Tufton Street. Refreshments will be provided.

Tickets are available now for £10, or you can pay £20 for a ticket that includes a copy of Future Politics (RRP £20).
