automation

There is a great report in a recent edition of The Economist on artificial intelligence (AI), an area that has seen a lot of VC investment recently. We particularly like the article on the impact of AI on the workforce, ‘Automation and anxiety’.

There has been much concern on the impact of AI on jobs. This piece argues that these fears are somewhat overblown, given evidence from previous similar technological developments such as the replacement of horses with cars and bank tellers with ATMs.
