Will Machines Replace Humans ?
Will Machines Replace Humans ?


Daniel Susskind is both the co-author of the best-selling book, ‘The Future of the Professions’, and author of ‘A World Without Work: Technology, Automation and How We Should Respond’. He was a Kennedy Scholar at Harvard University and is now a  Fellow in Economics at Balliol College, Oxford, where he teaches and researches. Previously, he worked for the British Government — in the Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit and in the Policy Unit at 10 Downing Street.

In ‘Future of the Professions’, Daniel and his father, Richard, predict the decline of today’s professions and introduce the people and systems that will replace them. They explain how increasingly capable technologies will replace the “practical expertise” of today’s finest specialists – doctors, lawyers, architects etc. – at low cost and without the need for face to face interaction.

The question of whether machines will replace humans in the world of work is becoming an ever more pertinent one. Daniel Susskind is at the forefront of those exploring this topic and is a  vital voice. His Ted talk on the topic has been viewed over a million times in which he discusses how we will distribute wealth in a world where there will be less – or even no – work.
