A hundred years ago you would be offered a job if you could demonstrate basic arithmetic and clear handwriting. Today, it’s not so simple.

We are starting to see radical changes to employment due to artificial intelligence, remote working and increased automation.

While some of these changes are possible to anticipate, others might surprise us...

But what do we know about how employment is changing and how should we prepare for it?



Reading List

The key readings for the first THINK debate this term are a pair of “grey literature” reports from two London-based Think Tanks:  the RSA and the Centre for Social Justice.

The RSA "Work in an Age of Radical Technologies" report

The CSJ "The Future of Work" report

The RSA "Which jobs are at risk from Covid-19 and automation" blog

The CSJ "Work and automation in the time of Covid-19" blog

Join us on Wednesday 21 October at 7pm for the first virtual THINK Debate of term.
