Octopus Books Community Classroom: How technology is changing our life and the future of work

Author, futurist, and serial entrepreneur Sylvain Rochon will illustrate how robots and artificial intelligence (AI) will be capable of replacing human workers within the next 25 years. Sylvain will explain the differences between the AI-assisted human work we see today and the AI of tomorrow. He’ll go over what our society and individuals can do to ensure that the transition to a world where most work is done by AI will be the best thing that could ever happen to our world.

There is no reason to be scared if we have the ability, through understanding, to direct the changes ahead as we enter the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Sylvain's 2018 book Engineering Paradise: Are You Ready? will be available for purchase at a reduced price at Octopus and Sylvain will be available for dedications after the talk.
