[VIDEO] Which Jobs Will (or Won’t) Machines Replace? TED Talk Answers the Question

Teachers, lawyers, doctors - no one is safe from the 'threat' of a machine doing it better, faster, and tirelessly. Anthony Goldbloom, founder-CEO of Kaggle, discusses which job functions are prone to replacement.

Founder-CEO of Silicon Valley startup, Keggle, Anthony Goldbloom, clears up the air on that conclusion.
