Legal and technology expert Professor Richard Susskind and economics fellow Daniel Susskind discuss how technological change could completely transform the traditional professions.

The Susskinds look at eight professions – accountants, lawyers, journalists, teachers, doctors, architects, management consultants and the clergy –  to argue that new technologies such as artificial intelligence mean things will go one of two ways – a more efficient version of what we have now or a gradual replacement of professionals by increasingly capable systems. This change has huge implications for how businesses are run, the training provided by universities and how government invests in new technology and educates and trains people for this new world.

Richard Susskind is an author, speaker and independent adviser to professional firms and governments. His books include The End of Lawyers? and Tomorrow’s Lawyers, and, most recently, Online Courts and the Future of Justice. Daniel Susskind is an economics fellow of Balliol College, Oxford. He explores the impact of technology, particularly artificial intelligence, on work and society. He is co-author of The Future of the Professions, and author of A World Without Work.  His TED Talk on the future of work has been viewed more than 1.4 million times.Discussions are chaired by Professor Ian Goldin, professor of globalisation and development at the University of Oxford and a former vice-president of the World Bank.
