Driven by sophisticated artificial intelligence, robots are performing much of the work once done by blue and white collar workers - everything from assembling computers to making custom ordered gourmet hamburgers. After all, robots do not require expensive health plans and human resource management. And you can just reprogram them when your requirements change. In this talk Sam speaks about this changing work landscape and the education and skill sets you will need to survive and obtain a personally and financially rewarding career.
