Automate Now? Robots, Jobs and Universal Basic Income

A Public Debate

Flickr Logo
Wed 09 December 2015,

Are technological advancements threatening to make human labour redundant across broad swathes of the economy? If so how should we respond politically? Should automation be resisted or should we look for new paths toward a future where the link between labour and flourishing or even survival is severed? Is a Universal Basic Income the way for us all to enjoy the gains made possible by automation?

Philosophers Nick Srnicek and Alex Williams co-authors of Inventing the Future: Postcapitalism and a World Without Work, will discuss these questions with a panel of roboticists, philosophers and politicians including Tony Dyer, Sabine Hauert, Darian Meacham, Matthew Studely and Alan Winfield. Audience questions and participation will be encouraged.
