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.
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.
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!
