The Basic Necessities With Amahl Williams


If you make between $40k and $90k annually then Universal Basic Income is... your friend? What?? In this episode, we talk to the man who said this and has much more to say about the future of work in America. 

Our friend Amahl Williams, robotics, IT and AI expert, is here with us today to provide context and clarity on a subject that is being given more weight and discussion every year. How will artificial intelligence change how we work and more importantly "who" works in the future. 

We see the Youtube videos from Boston Dynamics and the episodes of Black Mirror, how much of this future is real? How much of it is already here? Amahl shares with us his thoughts on how companies can utilize A.I. responsibly.

He'll also give us his recommendations for what companies and individuals can do, in the short term, to prepare for the future of work. His hope is to make the world a little bit of a better place and you can feel his passion for the impact that it has on our society as a whole.
