Will A Robot Take My Job?

March 2 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Book tickets here

Automation is everywhere. Most people by now will have used an ATM, scanned their own shopping in the supermarket or bought a train ticket from a machine. Some people in the US have even taken trips in self-driving cars or had their mail delivered by a drone. Widespread automation is moving forward at an alarming rate. There are trains which can analyse and fix track defects without human intervention and shops that feature talking robots to welcome you and help with your questions. Through this discussion, we will talk about how education must react to ensure that future generations stay ahead of the automation curve and shift from using technology towards developing it. The jobs of the future will undoubtedly be increasingly dependent on technology and we will discuss how, as educators, parents and society, we can begin to understand this change and prepare for it.
