In Australia, the Financial Review reports that up to half a million of existing jobs could be taken over by robotics or machines run by artificial intelligence in the coming years. With smarter computers taking on more of the work that people currently do, we are left to wonder what jobs there might be left for us humans? Join Dr David Tuffley as he discusses the future of employment in the age of intelligent machines. Hear about the jobs that will be in demand, and what skills the workers of the future will need.
