About this Episode

In just a few year’s time, it will be the year 2025, and that is the year the world will change forever?

Why? Because 2025 is when your computer will have the same processing power as the human brain.

And then just 18 months later, it will be twice as fast, and then 18 months later, four times faster, as Moore’s law continues its exponential rise.

Combined with the recent developments in AI and physical robotics, the world is about to change in a way that’s difficult to comprehend.

The careers of Driver’s, Doctor’s, lawyers, financial advisors, customer service agents, teachers, truckers, soldiers, and more are all at risk of disappearing within the next 15 years.

Which poses an incredible question when you realize that there will be around 8 billion people on the planet, who all need work, who all need to earn a living, and who all need a purpose.

What will my six year old son Chase possibly be able to do in 20 years, that a superhuman robot can’t? What will your children do, and what will you do?

What can you do today to create financial security for yourself and your children in a world without jobs?

The time to start thinking strategically about these changes is now, because your future will not look like your parent’s.

To help us navigate what’s to come, we’re joined by Silicon Valley CEO, and author of the New York Times Best-Selling book, Rise of The Robots, Martin Ford.
