“In the world that we are creating very quickly we are going to see more and more things that look like SF, and fewer and fewer things that look like jobs.” says the economist Andrew McAfee in one of the TED videos.

Since  our cars will be soon driving themselves and machines will replace many of the existing jobs in almost every sector, it’s no doubt that the age of technological unemployment is just around the corner.  We see machines that have started to acquire skills they never had before: understanding, speaking, hearing, and they still get new skills added. Robots will do a lot of the work..

Andrew McAfee explores benefits and challenges and talks why this is the best economic news today . In this far-seeing talk, he thinks through what future jobs might look like, and how to educate coming generations to hold them.
