Public Talk: Careers - what are they good for? The future of work in the 21st century

Once we were told that life after university would be pretty straightforward. A degree would lead to a job and a career, and many (perhaps most) of our worries would be over. After two turbulent decades the 21st century now provides a different context, and new questions arise. What does the word “career” still mean in practice? Will there be enough work to go around? Is homo sapiens on the way out, like an out of date product, to be replaced by algorithms, AI and automation?

Perhaps this is all too gloomy. New technology will make hitherto unimagined progress possible. Maybe there will be more time for fun and leisure. The future’s bright…maybe.

Come along to hear Stefan Stern, author and journalist, discuss our brilliant future and discuss what’s coming next.
