#162: How will artificial intelligence, AI, impact jobs? Former
Harvard president and leading economist Larry Summers predicts that
one-third of men will be out of work by 2050. Finance guru Suze
Orman says not to be surprised if we see 25 percent unemployment by
2030. And major research institutions predict anywhere from 14
percent to 50 percent unemployment.
But could this really be possible? Or is everyone panicking about what will essentially be a shift in the types of jobs that people hold — reminiscent of our shift from farm to factory, and from factory to office — but not an actual net job loss?
To answer these questions, we talk to Darrell West, author of The Future of Work, about artificial intelligence, robots, and the future of jobs.
