Azeem Azhar explains why ‘techno-pessimism’ is not helpful

'Techno-pessimism, which becomes almost a mantra that that technology is bad, the robots are bad and they're out to get us, is really, really quite unhelpful. It's almost as unhelpful as a starry-eyed utopianism.' Azeem Azhar is an entrepreneur and creator of the Exponential View, and a member of the World Economic Forum's Global Future Council on the Future of Complex Risks.
