Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other

Professor Sherry Turkle, founder and director of the MIT Initiative on Technology and Self, believes that the time is ripe for widespread rethinking of the way we interact through technology. An expert on mobile devices, social networking, and sociable robotics, she writes on the “subjective side” of people’s relationships with modern communication, especially computers.

On May 2, 2012, Turkle offered her thoughts on the growth of the digital world and the changes it has brought to contemporary lives, and answered questions from the worldwide MIT alumni community. Listen to the audio then join the discussion online.
