More About The Power of Human by Adam Waytz
 
 
 
Overview

Everyday life is increasingly human- free, but it doesn't have to be. In The Power of Human, social psychologist and business- school professor Adam Waytz details the cost of losing our humanity and shares scientific strategies for rehumanization.

To improve work, organizations should design tasks that foreground variability and social connection over routine and efficiency. To reduce conflict, we can create shared goals and highlight a common identity through navigating intergroup power dynamics. To improve human- technology interaction, Waytz's own research shows how we can engineer technology with humanlike voice and behavior to promote positive engagement, as well as how to form complementary partnerships with robots that divide labor effectively.

Essential reading for the individual and institution, The Power of Human provides unique, evidence- based solutions to the problem of dehumanization to help businesses and charities, technologists and world leaders, and friends and colleagues to best utilize the influence we have on one another.
