The Disruptors • 2017 • Secrets of Silicon Valley
Category: Economics

Jamie Bartlett uncovers the dark reality behind Silicon Valley’s glittering promise to build a better world. The tech gods believe progress is powered by technology tearing up the world as it is – a process they call disruption. He visits Uber’s lavish offices in San Francisco and hears how the company believes it is improving our cities. But in Hyderabad in India, Jamie sees for himself the human consequences of Uber’s utopian vision – drivers driven to suicide over falling earnings. Riding shotgun in a truck as it drives itself for more than a hundred miles on a highway, Jamie asks what the next wave of Silicon Valley’s global disruption – the automation of millions of jobs – will mean for all of us. In search of answers, he gets a warning from an artificial intelligence pioneer who is replacing doctors with software – an economic shock is coming, faster than any of us have realized. Jamie’s journey ends in the remote island hideout of a former Facebook executive who has armed himself with a gun because he fears this new industrial revolution could lead to social breakdown and the collapse of capitalism.
