• The Globotics Upheaval: Globalization, Robotics, and the Future of Work
    February 12, 2019
    12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In partnership with Los Angeles World Affairs Council

Richard Baldwin, one of the world’s leading globalization experts, will discuss how the globalization of automation, AI, and robotics is giving way to a ‘globotics’ upheaval. The inhuman speed of the transformation threatens to overwhelm our capacity to adapt and will disrupt the lives of millions of workers. Baldwin will discuss how people can prepare for the oncoming wave of an advanced robotic workforce and the global laws that need to be put in place to protect us in the Wild West of the future. Baldwin will be joined in conversation by moderator August Bradley, Producer and Host of MIND & MACHINE.
