General entry

With Chair Bernard Hickey

Could millions of jobs soon be eliminated by artificial intelligence? From driverless cars to digital assistants, it seems the world of work is on the cusp of a technological revolution. But are robots really knocking at the door? And what does this mean for New Zealanders? Kinley Salmon is one of the sharpest young minds looking at our future. An economist (John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University) and writer (The Economist), he is currently working in Washington DC. In partnership with Bridget Williams Books.
