Martin Ford at TED2017

TEDBlog writes about Martin Ford’s TED Talk at TED2017 in Vancouver, Canada: “We’ve been concerned about technology displacing humans for a long time, says futurist Martin Ford. And that’s had a strange effect on us. “Because of the false alarms, it’s led to a very conventional way of thinking,” he says. “That, yes, technology may devastate entire industries and wipe out entire types of work — but at the same time, progress is going to lead to entirely new things. New industries will arise.”
