My speech to the Community Union/Fabian Society Fringe meeting entitled "Should we Fear the Machines? Opportunities and Challenges of Technological Change for Workers" - Labour Conference 25 September 2018.
We need to prepare for the rise of the robots.
One view is that robots will lead to mass unemployment – and technology will bring about capitalism’s collapse.
A kind of techie Trotskyism.
Another view is that robots will enable us all to have a guaranteed minimum income and most of us can work a 20 hour week.
A kind of Scandi Utopia.
