The World Summit on Technological Unemployment | The World Technology Network

The World Summit on Technological Unemployment | The World Technology Network | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Accelerating technological unemployment will likely be one of the most challenging societal issues in the 21st Century.

With technology advancing at a geometric pace, robotics, artificial intelligence, 3D-printing, and other innovations with enormous disruptive potential will soon hit the mainstream. Billions of people worldwide are currently employed in industries that will likely be affected—and billions of new entrants to the workforce will need jobs.
