“There’s no question that technology is drastically changing the way we work, but what will the job market look like by 2050?”

Robohub’s Sabine Hauert is quoted in the article, saying many of the conversations are premature as we are decades away from creating a working artificial intelligence. “There’s a huge potential for robotics, but you must remember that making a robot is hard,” says Dr Sabine Hauert, lecturer in robotics for the University of Bristol. “For example, if you wanted to create a robot and ask it to fetch you some water, that is amazingly complex. First, the robot needs to understand the home environment, then see the glass, and then locate you. These challenges are extremely hard to solve one by one, and at the moment they’re almost impossible to solve altogether.”
