Andrew McAfee asks an important question in the TED Talk in Boston.

After analyzing labor data, McAfee shares his perspectives on the future of employment while trying to find out exactly how technology affects the way people make a living. Although the numbers don’t look so good, McAfee voices his optimism for the future – that even if robots and algorithm do better at certain tasks, he reminds us that economies run on ideas, which are catalysts for innovation and the reason why robots and algorithm exist in the first place.
