X007: Future Express | AI in the Legal System and More on Technological Unemployment
In this Future Express, Jon and Ted discuss bringing AI to legal finance and whether that might push us toward rationalizing our laws. We mention the parking ticket fighting app DoNotPay, and imagine that type of technology growing to cover most legal needs, starting an arms race between assistant software and bureaucracies that will force them to change strategy, because they are no longer protected by the inertia of time consuming obstacles. Responding to listener feedback, we reexamine the idea of elder care robots. In our continuing discussion of technological unemployment, we wonder whether the whole issue doesn't really come down to the superstar effect, and we wonder: can capitalism survive until the singularity arrives? Should it?

Among my favourite podcasts!
An interesting take on how technology will change the future. The 2 presenters are intelligent in their views, hard working (you can see they do research) and entertaining. Along with Planet Money, this is my favourite podcast.
Nothing more interesting than knowing how the future will be disrupted by technology!!
