BWB Talks: Kinley Salmon on the Future of Work (Palmerston North)

Cover of Jobs, Robots & Us book

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 is one of the sharpest young minds looking at our future. An economist (John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University) and writer (The Economist), his new book Jobs, Robots & Us: Why the Future of Work in New Zealand Is in Our Hands is available at all good bookstores.

With chair Thomas Nash, co-founder of the New Zealand Alternative think tank and housing start-up Shelter, and Massey University’s inaugural Social Entrepreneur in Residence.
