Will Robots Take All Our Jobs? - see LABRST 1D03

This course explores technology and the future of work. Fears that technological advances would leave no work remaining for people have existed since the beginning of industrialization; are the fears justified in the 21st century with the advent of robots, artificial intelligence and other technology? what jobs are most vulnerable to being automated? How should labour and the public organize so that machines can enhance our lives instead of threatening our livelihood?
