This week Mike, Faisal, and Brian discuss the world where automation kills the workforce. However, before we start, a big shout out to Wikipedia that turned 16 years old today! Congratulations to Jimmy Wales, the entire team of the Wikimedia Foundation and 100,000s of contributors who donate their time and effort to make Wikipedia what it is today.
Another shout out to Tobias van Schneider who put up a really great 11 most used tools list. Whilst we generally don’t do list, this one was too good to pass up. Lastly, a shout out to Amit, the Co-Founder and Chief Curator of Let’s Talk Payments (LTP). Amit wrote a really great article on the Fintech Story, Hits and Misses from 2013 to 2016 and the Way Forward.
In addition to this, our main topic of the show was to understand how the world will transform when technologies like VR, Driverless Cards, Drones, Cryptocurrency/Bitcoin, Voice Recognition, AI, and Robotics become mainstream. How do we as a society (as we are now) embrace this change, what will happen to the workforce that would be displaced? Will society need to offer basic income to all? Listen in and discover what we have to say!
