The Robots May Be Coming, But Probably Not for Your Job

Most discussions about AI and the future of work tend to go in one of two directions: either excitement for a ‘post-work’ utopia, or alarm over the end of work. On this episode Mark talks with Aaron Benanav, an economic historian, postdoctoral researcher at Humboldt University of Berlin, and author of ‘Automation and the Future of Work,’ about why this whole debate sort of misses the point. You can learn more about and purchase Aaron's book here: [https://www.versobooks.com/books/3717-automation-and-the-future-of-work] [Transcript forthcoming]
