Today I’m bringing you the audio version of a talk I gave at The Next Web conference in Amsterdam earlier this year on a topic that’s top of mind for many of us, which is the rise of AI and automation and the implications it may have for our careers – whether you’re a truck driver or a radiologist or a graphic designer, you’ve probably had a moment in the past year or two where you saw a news piece and asked yourself – “whoa – is a computer or a robot gonna put me out of a job?”
I get it, because I’ve had that moment myself and it was scary as hell. But – as I’ll explain in detail in the talk – I believe that while there are many valid concerns about how technology will change our lives, it’s ultimately a tremendous opportunity for humanity – one that can and will unlock a tidal wave of creativity IF we as a species can make a few small adjustments to our thinking.
So if, like so many of us, you’ve wondered if a robot or an algorithm is going to take your job, this talk is for you – and hopefully by the end of it, you’ll be as optimistic about the future as I am.
