'Devastating': Robots to take 6.5 million jobs

Australian Financial Review | Monday 1 April 2019


Microsoft Australia managing director Steven Worrall and Telstra executive Michael Ebeid warn that business, governments and workers are woefully unprepared for robots to displace up to 6.5 million jobs.

The pair join tech heavyweights such as Atlassian's Mike Cannon-Brookes and venture capitalist Daniel Petre who warn "we need to act now", ahead of a major conference kicking off on Monday to urge action.
