The age of automation is no longer a vague concept discussed only by futurists and tech visionaries. It is upon us, and it's already fundamentally changing the way we live and work. Within 10 years—and likely far sooner—robots will permeate every part of our lives.

They'll drive us to work. They'll cook our meals. They'll do our dishes. They'll protect our homes. They'll care for the elderly. They'll even represent us in court.

It's exciting to imagine, but it also raises important questions. How will robots change the way we work? The way we live? The way we travel? The way we provide for our families?

Futurism is partnering with The White House and Business Insider to help answer some of these questions, and start a conversation about the implications of automation—both at home and abroad. We'll be joined by Zipcar CEO Robin Chase and 'Rise of the Robots' author Martin Ford. White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough will moderate.

The event will be live streamed on our Facebook page, as well as the pages of The White House and Business Insider. Additional details can be found in the image above.

When it kicks off at 1:15 pm ET on Tuesday July 5th, the live stream will also be embedded in this article. Hope to see you there!
