AB Crossfire: Will automation take away our jobs?

One-third of the US workforce and between 400 million and 800 million individuals globally could be out of a job by 2030 due to automation.

45% of paid activities could be automated using ‘currently demonstrated technologies’ and . . . 60% of occupations could have 30% or more of their processes automated.

375 million workers—or roughly 14 percent of the global workforce—may need to switch occupational categories as digitization, automation, and advances in artificial intelligence disrupt the world of work.

Futurist Ian Khan and Mark Ackerman from ServiceNow discuss the future of work with regards to automation in this week's Crossfire Debate.
