Recode launching TV series on tech with MSNBC
Tech news site Recode is partnering with MSNBC to produce a town hall event series starting Jan. 19 broadcast on television and on the web looking at how technology is impacting every aspect of our lives.
Kara Swisher of Recode writes, “Through this series, we will tap into a range of topics with thought leaders that include corporate executives and entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, government officials, academics and citizens.
“Obviously, the place to start is one of the important areas impacted — jobs and the workplace — which will be the focus in 2018. While much of the election centered on the loss of manufacturing in the Rust Belt, some think the really tough challenges are still to come as advances in artificial intelligence, robotics and automation gain steam and begin to impact a swath of employment that has been previously untouched.
“That’s why the first episode of the one-hour program will be a keynote interview with Google CEO Sundar Pichai and YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, led by myself and MSNBC co-host Ari Melber. It makes sense, since many of the search giant’s key businesses are ones that are likely to dominate its next era of innovation.”
