Gerd Leonhard – How the Future Works

"Imagine a future where work is no longer the same as purpose, where we can find purpose in what we can and what we are meant to do.”

Gerd Leonhard

Futurist & Humanist | Leading Expert on the Future

Gerd Leonhard just released a new film ‘How the Future Works’ on the future of work, jobs, education and training.

Here are some of the key messages:

  • Anything that can be automated, digitized or virtualized will be.
  • When artificial intelligence (AI) meets human intelligence (HI), it’s the end of routine work as we know it (but it’s not the end of human work).
  • Whatever is easy for a computer is hard for humans, and vice versa (Moravec) – and this will remain true for the foreseeable future.
  • There is life beyond automation and robotization: a new age of human-only work is beginning – we just need to be ready.
  • Our ultimate job is… to be human: The more we digitize our world, the more human we can and we must become.
