About the lecture

Technological progress and the advancement of AI and automation will have a major impact on the nature of work in the coming decade. We are all familiar with the transport revolution where self-driving cars are now a question of “when” not “whether.”

We need to recognise that AI, robotics, 3D printing, and big data will change the nature of many different types of jobs in ways that we can already anticipate and in ways that we cannot even imagine today. Coping with this kind of widespread and rapid change — notwithstanding the gains it will bring — will raise difficult societal challenges including in developing countries.
