  • Take practical steps to develop your own unique powers of creativity

More than ever it's essential to understand and develop our unique capabilities as human beings.

We are deep in the throes of the fourth industrial revolution. Intelligent machines are set to sweep away countless jobs that until now could only be done by people. The casualties will include many professional roles in medicine, finance, social care, business and the service sector. As this new wave of innovation churns over our lives and work, what will be left for human beings to do? What can we do that machines cannot? What is the human advantage?

In this provocative and far-sighted presentation, Sir Ken Robinson takes a searching look at the emerging powers of artificial intelligence and their likely impact on our lives and work. He identifies our unique powers as human beings: the powers that machine intelligence may complement but cannot replace. He shows why and how we must develop our human advantage at work, in education and in our rapidly changing communities.
