[Repeated from Tuesday 11am.] NND and guests discuss all aspects of work and workplaces. AI season continues with the generous support of ARC Club. In Episode 7, The Age of AI, NND talks to Kofi Oppong, founder of UrbanMBA about the impact of AI on humanity and the nine transformative technologies - including quantum computers – shaping this new era. What are the implications if AI is quicker and better at tasks than humans and is able to ‘learn’ and improve itself? We explore the systemic and societal overhaul needed in a scenario where humans do not work at all versus the paradigm of new jobs based on new technologies. If AI is predicted to take over the majority of jobs, how do we prepare regardless of which scenario plays out? Will The Age of AI dispense with the need for money and herald the return of the bartering system? Crucially, instead of doomsday predictions, will The Age of AI usher in a new Age of Enlightenment?
