How will robotics, AI and big data shape European societies?
Current technological innovations in robotics, artificial intelligence, data and computing power are nothing short of revolutionary. These developments invite many pressing societal questions. How will work change? Will jobs be destroyed? What new jobs will be created? What skills should we learn? Can everybody master these skills? How should they best be taught?
But also: who will benefit most from these technological developments? How do inequalities change? Are social groups affected differently? And, importantly, what can governments do to cushion technological inequalities?
