AAAS cordially invites you to the May 2018 AAAS Colloquium: 

Some commentators fear that we are in the midst of a Fourth Industrial Revolution where artificial intelligence, machine learning, autonomous vehicles, and robots are replacing workers at staggering rates. Others worry about AI-fueled intelligent machines overpowering human control. In this session, Rob Atkinson explores these impacts and concerns and the implications for education. He concludes that instead of fretting about tech killing jobs, we should be worrying about how to boost record-low productivity growth—the only sustainable way to increase living standards.
