What will the future of work look like? It depends who you ask. According to optimists, new technologies will help us work faster and more efficiently such that we will have more free time.

Pessimists, on the other hand, predict a future in which advanced automation will cause many jobs to disappear, causing massive unemployment, and further increasing the inequality between rich and poor.
