A balanced 2016 review of the concern for a jobless society. Worth reading, but also recognizing that it would probably be very different if written a year later.
Report: The Future of Jobs - Preparing for the workforce of the 4th industrial revolution (Future of Jobs - 2016-01 - World Economic Forum)
At the beginning of a 4th Industrial Revolution, developments in genetics, artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology, 3D printing, and biotechnology, etc. are all building on and amplifying one another, laying the foundation for a revolution more comprehensive and all-encompassing than anything we have ever seen. Smart systems—homes, factories, farms, grids or cities—will help tackle problems ranging from supply chain management to climate change. The rise of the sharing economy will allow people to monetize everything from their empty production and employment pose major challenges to corporations, governments, and individuals. Concurrent to the technological revolution is a set of broader socio-economic, geopolitical and demographic drivers of change, each interacting in multiple directions and intensifying one another. As entire industries adjust, most occupations are undergoing a fundamental transformation.
