Weekend Video: Humans Need Not Apply

If you have not seen “Humans Need Not Apply” by CPG Grey I recommend investing the time this weekend. 15 minutes well spent.

Several media outlets picked up the story: This sobering 15-minute piece suggests, in a convincing fashion, that many human jobs will disappear over the coming years, because automation – basically computers and robots – will do them faster, better and cheaper.” (Bruce Kasanoff, Forbes) Full Forbes Story
“For most of the five years that I have been writing on this subject, I’ve been a relatively lonely voice; the attention of both the public and economists has been focused elsewhere. Over the the past year or so, however, things have changed quite dramatically: Deep concern about the robot revolution — and its impact on jobs — is going mainstream.” (Martin Ford, Huffington Post)Full HuffPo Story
