I was happy to be part of a panel discussion in the launch of Imperial Robotics Forum Industry Club.
Professor Maria Fox and Dr. Thrishantha Nanayakkara discuss the current state of the UK’s tech and manufacturing industry in an article with The Work Foundation titled “The rise of the Robosapiens.” The emphasize that investing in education and engineering will help UK become a leader, rather than a passer-by, in the next generation.
This article was written as part of an invited talk by The Work Foundation’s annual debate, “Will robots and enhanced humans steal our jobs?”
