Steve and Ben are back with their first episode of SciTech Culture for 2015: Technology And The Future Of Work. Watch the episode on YouTube below:
The future of jobs and employment is occurring right now. With technology developing at a rapid pace, and in many cases displacing many blue collar assembly line jobs, society faces a strong challenge in finding suitable employment for an ever increasing global population. Will this mean the end of repetitive work, the end of the 8-hour work day, and the introduction of non-standard, unscheduled work patterns where we engage in high level operations? Steve and Ben take a look at the future of work and how our society will change as a result over the next century.
