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 interrogates common predictions about a jobless future and explores what might happen to workers as automation becomes more widespread. He sketches out two bold alternative futures for New Zealand – and suggests what it might take, and what we might risk, to pursue each of them. This BWB Talk is chaired by Bernard Hickey. Kinley Salmon will be in conversation with Bernard Hickey, managing editor of Newsroom Pro. A leading financial journalist and editor, Bernard has over twenty-three years’ experience working in roles at Reuters, The Financial Times Group and Fairfax Media.
