Robots and the future of work

In this concept deck I examine some global macroeconomic data from the past sixty years to argue that automation is a major factor behind the increase in global productivity. Cognitive computing and highly adaptable robotics will solve the problem of productivity having flattened out in most industrial countries – the main cause of unemployment, longer working lives and economic inequality.

But AI will also empower the individual more than ever, and will lead to a new transformation of business organisation, into what I call “Responsive organisation”.
