'Second Machine Age' author says machines are taking over humans
Today, as part of our project By Design, we're peering into the future, to a time when we spend more time living side-by-side with androids, or robots... popular depictions of the future are usually populated with advanced machines acting in very human ways.
Our fears of the robots rising against us were perfected in the voice of HAL 9000, the computer that went rogue in the then-futuristic movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
New advances in artificial intelligence and digital technology have machines taking over more human tasks, with huge implications for how we'll live and work in the future.
If you are someone who's job has been directly affected by the new machine age and if you have had to re-invent yourself or are in the process of doing so...then we'd love to hear from you.
