bring a tsunami of unemployment? What can we do with people whose job became
obsolete because a machine can now do it? On which bases autonomous cars should
make their decisions?


 


This course will deal with all
these questions and will show that, since the beginning of digital
transformation and while technical change had dramatically increased its paceā€¦

the history of digital transformation.
