In an era when machines can out-perform human beings at most tasks, we will neither need nor want doctors, accountants, consultants, and many other professions, to work as they did in the 20th century.
In this public lecture, Richard and Daniel Susskind predict the decline of experts as we know them, as the rise in new technologies transforms the way that practical know-how is made available in society.
