Robots Are Not Killing Jobs, Says a Roboticist

Will the next generation of automatons put humans out of work? Or will machines change the game so radically that they’ll have a net positive effect on employment numbers? In a January Techwise Conversations podcast projecting the job market of 2045, Rice University professor Moshe Vardi took a dim view, predicting that robots and artificial intelligence will put us out of the business of lawyering, doctoring, caring for the elderly, and even driving. In a new podcast installment, host Steven Cherry gives Georgia Tech’s Henrik Christiansen a chance to present a different point of view. Christiansen is confident that where robots eliminate one type of job they will more than make up for it by creating related tasks that robots can’t do.
