Each new industrial revolution has traditionally been met with tradeoffs in employment opportunities. The new wave in industry, marked by robotics, AI, IoT and autonomous vehicles, raises a number of questions around how robotics and machines will impact the workforce in a variety of segments - from finance to semiconductor design, agriculture, food production, journalism, and far more.
