“It’s different this time!”
That's what AI experts reply when asked why previous periods of technological advances didn't end the world as we know it.
So, take a deep dive with us to the early 1700s as we take you on a tour of multiple periods in history when "quixotic pursuit of job-killing technology" was indeed feared by almost everyone -- from The New York Times to The Lancet -- to "soften our brains" or make us "stupid." You'll see how fears of technology flair up when social mood enters a certain trend -- much like the one we're in now.
You'll also learn why Elon Musk's lax Twitter rules probably aren't to blame for the recent tweet attacks on climate scientists.
The new, July 2023 Socionomist brings you these and other eye-opening stories. Read it instantly when you become a Socionomics Premier Member.
HOW IT WORKS
Socionomics starts with a simple observation: How people FEEL influences how they will BEHAVE.
At the Socionomics Institute, we look at how society is feeling today – so you can anticipate how society will behave tomorrow. We track social mood in real time across the globe. You’ll see how changes in social mood shift everything from the songs people want to hear to the leaders they elect; from people’s desire for peace to their hunger for scandals.
This is a rare, awe-inspiring insight. It’s what enables the Institute to help our members stay ahead of new trends that surprise almost everyone else.
Your Socionomics Premier Membership gives you this unrivaled perspective and puts you miles ahead of the herd.
