Is technology leading us to widespread joblessness? Will the self-driving car steer 3.5 million truck drivers to the unemployment line? Ever-improving algorithms are making it possible for machines to perform tasks not only in manufacturing sites, but in law firms and radiology labs. We face a paradoxical economy of abundant production with dwindling numbers of employed citizens able to consume its products. Join us to explore how the "rise of the robots" will affect us, and what we can do to meet the challenges of this new workforce revolution.
