Richard Baldwin: The Globotics Upheaval

Friday 8 March, 2pm-3pm

Al Ras 1, InterContinental, DFC

Richard Baldwin, one of the world's leading globalisation experts, calls the combination of globalisation and robotics ‘globotics’, and warns that the inhuman speed of this transformation threatens to overwhelm us, with the lives of millions of white-collar workers disrupted much faster than automation, industrialisation, and globalisation disrupted the lives of factory workers in previous centuries.

Prepare for an uncertain future by learning more about The Globotics Upheaval.
