Could millions of jobs soon be eliminated by artificial intelligence and robots? From driverless cars to digital assistants, it seems the world of work is on the cusp of a technological revolution. But are the robots really knocking at the door? And what does all this mean for New Zealanders?
Kinley Salmon is one of the sharpest young minds looking at our future. An economist (John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University) and writer (The Economist), his new book 'Jobs, Robots & Us: Why the Future of Work in New Zealand Is in Our Hands' is available at all good bookstores.
