Will a robot take your job?

Will a robot take your job? That's the question to which everyone wants to know the answer. This talk helps you start to work out the answer to the question for yourself. It provides a robust overview of how work is changing, but does so in an entertaining and engaging style. This interactive keynote can provide the perfect opening or closing to your day, or provide some food for thought at your conference dinner.

It explores the question 'What do we mean by robot?' with a quick tour of some of the robots that are already amongst us, including the ones that have been sacked! It explains the impact automation is having and will have on work (using Mr Potato Head to illustrate the point), and provides a framework for assessing the impact of automation on your own work.
