Captivating report by Cicero Group and Chartered Insurance Institute. Worth reading.
Over time computers will autonomously undertake complex tasks that would previously have been the preserve of highly trained professionals. A range of services from financial planning to medical diagnostics will be carried out by machines more cheaply and possibly far more effectively. The benefits of this revolution will be huge. But it will also pose challenges for society. We will have to adjust to big changes in the labour market, rethink how ethical and legal norms apply to decisions made by computers, and protect ourselves for threats to our privacy and security. Politicians and regulators will have to work out how to manage the social conflicts that will inevitably arise as existing ways of doing things are upended.
