The world is being transformed by a profound technological revolution, dominated by digital – a second machine age.

Earlier this year the House of Lords select committee on digital skills reported that we have reached at a critical juncture – where dependent on the actions we take now, the new digital age could either make or break the UK.

Digital technology is changing all our lives, work, society and politics. Over the next two decades, some economists have estimated that 35% of current jobs in the UK could become automated.

It is clear that unless we radically reassess the fundamentals of how our economy and politics work, we risk a future of massive unemployment and inequality.

At the RSA, leading expert on AI and the robotics revolution Martin Ford offers both an exploration of this new technology and a call to arms to face its radical implications.
