The future of the professions: how technology will transform the work of human experts
This book talk is hosted by the Oxford Martin School and the Oxford Internet Institute

This book predicts the decline of today’s professions and describes the people and systems that will replace them. In an Internet society, according to Richard Susskind and Daniel Susskind, we will neither need nor want doctors, teachers, accountants, architects, the clergy, consultants, lawyers, and many others, to work as they did in the 20th century.

In an era when machines can out-perform human beings at most tasks, what are the prospects for employment, who should own and control online expertise, and what tasks should be reserved exclusively for people?

This talk will be followed by a book signing and drinks, all welcome
