20200623Professor Rosie Campbell speeds into the future as she reveals how COVID19 is accelerating changes to our world that were not expected until at least 2025. How we work, travel, learn, and shop are all being transformed in the COVID crisis. Rosie examines how the pandemic is bringing forward changes to key aspects of our lives, and how the global virus emergency also exposes critical fault-lines in government, the economy and society which had been papered over but which cannot be ignored any longer.
Rethink: Fast Forward reveals how these forces might radically change our lives much sooner than we expect. Hierarchies that run along lines of race and economic background have been ruthlessly exposed by COVID; what happens when these social inequalities meet the accelerated change that remote working and increasing reliance on AI bring to our world?

Presenter: Prof Rosie Campbell, Professor of Politics, Kings College, London
