Bloomberg Radio, US: Director of Cognizant’s Center for the Future of Work Shares ‘What To Do When Machines Do Everything’

“Rather than worrying about the ethical implications of robots in fifty years' time, the issue most business people have to focus on is, ‘what do you do about [automation] now? What do you do about it in the next few months or the next few quarters?’” says Ben Pring, Vice President and Director of Cognizant’s Center for the Future of Work and co-author of What To Do When Machines Do Everything.

“These technologies, which are incredibly powerful and developing incredibly fast, are going to change all aspects of society and business. We’re trying to offer advice in the book on how to make the trend your friend.”

“You can use these technologies today and adopt them in your financial services practice, your healthcare practice, in the way you schedule meetings. All of these little incremental things are going to have profound implications in the next few years.”

“Predictions about a jobless future don’t really stand up when you drill into them.”
