Rise of the Machines and its impact on the future labour market: A non-tech and purely economic perspective

  • Morten Hansen, Head of the Economics Department, Stockholm School of Economics in Riga

The rise of artificial Intelligence has created much hype: Millions of jobs will be destroyed as machines take over a large swathe of jobs, creating a need for some sort of Universal Basic Income to support those who will lose their jobs. But this is a very static view of the world. History is full of job destruction – and job creation as there is no special reason to think the rise of AI will change this.
