Summary
"The trend that began with ATMs and do-it-yourself checkouts is moving at lightning speed. Everything from driving to teaching to the care of the elderly and, indeed, code-writing can now be done by smart machines. Conventional wisdom says there will be new jobs to replace those we lose--but is it so simple? And are we ready? Technology writer and think tank director Nigel Cameron argues it's naive to believe we face a smooth transition. Whether or not there are "new" jobs, we face massive disruption as the jobs millions of us are doing get outsourced to machines. A twenty-first-century "rust belt" will rapidly corrode the labor market and affect literally hundreds of different kinds of job simultaneously. Robots won't design our future--we will. Yet shockingly, political leaders and policy makers do not seem to have this in their line of sight. So how should we assess and prepare for this unknown future?"--
