How to Stop Robots From Stealing Jobs
Thursday, May 21, 2015, 7:30PM

Martin Ford

Technological advances are creating a new world, but will it be one where humans in the workforce become obsolete? In Rise of the Robots, Silicon Valley giant Martin Ford (The Lights in the Tunnel) offers a glimpse at the future–one where super computers and technology make manpower unnecessary. He outlines the most at-risk jobs–from paralegals and journalists to computer programmers–and explains how this could impact the economy on a massive scale. He’ll give insight into a perilous future, and basic changes to education, healthcare, and societal infrastructure that should be made to alter the course–before it’s too late.
