Interview by Teresa Arrieta for Change-TV, right after TEDxVienna 2012.
Singularity Hub features in their home page an interview with me. Go check it out ;)
Here's a 5 minute excerpt of the 1 hour long Google hangout.
My good friend Tiago Mattos of Perestroika interviewed me on my book "Robots will steal your job, but that's OK", the future of jobs and society, art, creativity, passion, and the technological singularity. The interview took place at NASA Ames research center, during the Graduate Study Program at Singularity University.
"Federico Pistono is perhaps the youngest guest I have ever had on Singularity 1 on 1. Despite that Federico is already a scientific educator, social activist, blogger and aspiring filmmaker. More recently, he is the author of a book called Robots Will Steal Your Job, But That's OK and an incoming student to Singularity University."
Thanks to Socrates for the interview:
It's been an amazing week. The book is gaining a lot of interest, and things are starting to catch up very quickly. I had an interview with Peter Murray from Singularity Hub, and he wrote a very good article about my upcoming book, which was even featured on the front page of their website.
Next, I was contacted by The Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies (IEET), whose mission is to be a center for voices arguing for a responsible, constructive, ethical approach to the most powerful emerging technologies. They believe that technological progress can be a catalyst for positive human development so long as we ensure that technologies are safe and equitably distributed.
You can read my article here, which will part of a series, outlining the general principles presented in the book.
I've also been contacted by some very influential people and organisations. Things are looking good, the times are extremely exciting.
We are moving fast.
