Technology and Robotics

Nearly 20% of people working in Scotland are engaged with some transport or logistics related activity. From managing supplies in the NHS to driving a bus most of these jobs could be replaced by robots over the next 30 years.

  • Is this progress?
  • What sort of future society do we want?
  • How can we manage the employment and skills implications?
  • Should Scots have a basic income to reflect the economic benefits of new technology?
  • Are there any specific issues about robotoics that are relatively more important in a Scottish conext?

Please post comments related to automation of transport here.  A review paper will be prepared when sufficient evidence is available on this topic.
