Technological Unemployment (2019)

Daniel Susskind

In contrast with previous technology, the latest generation of machines equipped with artificial intelligence replaces many creative and manual jobs without creating new ones. Thus the future will probably see less work and more unemployment: how should all the economic and social implications be managed?
Will the effects of coronavirus and the need for social distancing increase the speed with which this transformation changes our way of working or not working? It may be helpful to listen to the Oxford University Professor’s lecture, to ask ourselves about the most effective ways of dealing with technological unemployment.
