Lecture by Martin Ford, author of Rise of the Robots

Wanted to link to an interesting lecture from Martin Ford, author of Rise of the Robots, which came out last month. Ford discusses how his experiences as a successful software developer and entrepreneur tipped him into becoming a prophet of robo-doom, and has some interesting and fair-minded responses to the standard critiques of the idea that employment might be broadly affected by tech. Decent Q&A afterwards as well.

Check it out.
