Matt Beane - Future of Work Implications: Skills & Humans in the Robotic Age

Squirro's Podcast: Redefining AI - Season 3

In this episode,  Matt Beane, one of the world’s top researchers on work and technology, joins Lauren Hawker Zafer to discuss his new book, "The Skill Code: How to Save Human Ability in an Age of Intelligent Machines."

Lauren and Matt shape an accessible conversation around the future of work and what it means to be human in a world of intelligent machines. Matt's insightful and surprising guide to protecting your skill in a world powered by Artificial Intelligence. In his own words, "Think of your most valuable skill, the thing you can reliably do under pressure to deliver results. How did you learn it?

Matt Beane anticipated book highlights the importance of preserving the bond between experts and novices in the workplace—important for skill development—and his argument that the three C's—challenge, complexity, and connection—are the fundamental components of building valuable skills.
