Guest: J.P. Gownder, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research By some estimates, up to half of all jobs in the US will be replaced by automation over the next few decades - and not just manual labor. Doctors, therapists and even journalists could be supplanted by smart computers capable of learning and improving over time. But Forrester Research analyst J.P. Gownder thinks those estimates are way overblown. He and his team estimate only a fraction of Americans will be completely out of a job because of automation. The majority of us will have to learn how to work side-by-side with the robots.
