Event description

Description

The rapid advance in technology over recent decades has led us into an existential debate about our future relationship with robots. Some say we are doomed, others that jobs will disappear overnight, and there are those on the left who say these dramatic changes will move us towards a post-capitalist world in a breath.

Marxist economist Michael Roberts takes on some of these arguments, and puts the question of power centre stage. Is the robot takeover inevitable, and will advancement lead to living standards improving, or further exploitation? Come and discuss.
