SYNOPSIS

 

The Future of Work and Death is a documentary concerning the growth of exponential technology and where it is taking us.

 

The film focuses on how future technology could significantly change the two inevitable features of the human experience; punching the clock and fading away. It explores how advanced automation, AI and technological singularity could be achievable in the next 30 years. How job obsolescence and technological unemployment could consequently occur and how digital immortality may not be a thing of science fiction.

 

But what are the socio-political repercussions of these innovations and are we ready for them? Does working less mean living more and is ending ageing incumbent on us? - 17 international scientists, engineers and academics all come together to share their thoughts on whether or not these future advancements will advance us.

 

"The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom." - Isaac Asimov
