What 7-year-olds need to learn now to thrive in an AI world of work

March 14, 2018

When the topic of AI and the future of work arises, the picture painted is often a bleak one: What will we do for work? How will we survive? Will we ever recover? But Calum Chace and Angus Knowles-Cutler have a much more optimistic outlook on the future. And so, Paul Miller asks his guests: What should children be learning today to equip themselves to work alongside machines in 20 years’ time? They discuss the subjects and skills that will prepare the next generation and whether our education systems are ready for this new challenge.

This enlightening and refreshingly positive conversation also covers how we can all prepare for the future; how different societies will adapt and which will prosper; and asks would a life without having to work really be so bad?
