This Ted presentation, titled 'Are droids taking our jobs' is worth a look. The blurb for the 14 minute video is:
'Robots and algorithms are getting good at jobs like building cars,
writing articles, translating -- jobs that once required a human. So
what will we humans do for work? Andrew McAfee walks through recent
labor data to say: We ain't seen nothing yet. But then he steps back to
look at big history, and comes up with a surprising and even thrilling
view of what comes next'.
One point that the presentation makes very clear; we need to encourage our students of today to be creative and innovative.
