As we look to a future where the role of work in life may change dramatically as a function of artificial intelligence, outsourcing,
robotics and the 'gig' economy, this panel discussion will focus on the role of work in our lives and our search for meaning in the
21st century. It will also touch on how these changes may affect capitalism.
Eve Poole teaches, consults and speaks on leadership around the world. Richard Sennett is Professor of Sociology at the London School of Economics. Nicholas Srnicek is Lecturer in the Digital Economy at Kings College London.
