The future of work

Accelerating technological unemployment will likely be one of the most challenging societal issues in the 21st Century. Never before in history are so many industries being simultaneously upended by new technologies. Though "creative destruction," in which lost jobs are replaced with new ones, will be a factor, our newest technologies have the clear potential to eliminate many more jobs than we create. With technology advancing at a geometric pace, robotics, artificial intelligence, 3D-printing, and other innovations with enormous disruptive potential will soon hit the mainstream. Billions of people worldwide are currently employed in industries that will likely be affected—and billions of new entrants to the workforce will need jobs. Much has been written about the coming collision of rapidly advancing technology and an increasingly displaced workforce (a recent Oxford study predicts 47% of US jobs gone from technology within two decades), Technology innovation (automation) + The rise of the gig economy + Growth with no job creation = welcome to the strange future of the future of work where the old rules do not seam to apply any more.... We will talk about Unconditional Basic Income , job destruction and automation, technology innovation, new form of social contract between companies and employee, the rise of the maker economy, the political consequences of thos technology and business change etc... Come and join to debate and share your views!
