Description
CGP Grey explains how automation will begin to replace all jobs. Expanding on the notion that robots will be able to replace most mundane and repetitive jobs, Grey explains how robots will be able to handle administrative jobs such as sorting through paperwork. He posits that eventually robots will be able to replace almost every type of profession, including creative work such as composing songs and writing articles. To end off a rather grim outlook on the future of employment, Grey suggests that now is the time to begin figuring out how we as a species will handle the possibility of being unemployable.
