What are human beings going to do?

The digital revolution is laying claim to a rapidly expanding number of jobs, with the collision between job intensity and productivity unlike anything we've ever seen. What does this mean for young people?

The digital revolution is, at heart, a disruption of work, but unlike all previous ones of those in history, this one affects almost every form of labour -- unskilled and skilled, physical and mental, blue collar and white collar. Societies and governments have not even begun to deal with the challenges that this presents.

Computing power and robotics are not just allowing physical workers to be replaced with mechanical robots, but also 'thought' workers and analysts, who are being made to look like typists.
