TED Talk: Are Droids Taking Our Jobs?


This fascinating TED talk explains the current trends in productivity and profitability with a comparative lack of growth in jobs per capita. In short, advances in technology are replacing people in all job sectors, but McAfee argues that this is a good thing and we are only in the initial stages. Guiding this change will be a distinctly 21st century issue and this talk explains, with extensive use of economic, population, and historical data, how computing advances will radically alter our futures.
