How can something as cold and calculating as a computer actually make people feel more connected to each other?
The new memoir from Affectiva CEO and founder Rana el Kaliouby talks about her personal mission to humanize technology before it dehumanizes us. The book is called Girl Decoded and it was the selection for the latest installment Overbooked, the March book club.
Hailey Melamut and Janabeth Ward join the show today to discuss its most important themes, including the mission to bring more humanity to tech interactions, the state of racial diversity in tech, and the unique challenges of being a woman and a leader in a male-dominated industry.
Overbooked rolls on. Every quarter, we’ll select a book with a technology innovation theme to read together, and we’ll be announcing our next selection soon. If you have any ideas or recommendations on great books to read, tweet us @MarchComms.
