31 May 2019: Public lecture on "Globalization, Robotics and the Future of Work"

While globalization and robotics, “globotics”, will eventually make a better world, it will create explosive social challenges along the way. Digital technology is allowing “white-collar robots” to displace many service-sector workers and professionals while at the same time enabling “telemigration” where talented, low-cost workers sitting abroad displace domestic office workers. If displaced office workers join with already displaced factory workers, the result could be a destabilizing upheaval. To avoid this, Prof. Baldwin asserts that governments must use the tools they have to slow the pace and make the competition from globots seem fairer.
