In this talk, Daniel Susskind will explore the future of the professions in the age of COVID-19. Drawing on his best-selling books, The Future of the Professions (OUP, 2015) and A World Without Work (Allen Lane, 2020), he will set out two futures for the professions. Both rest on technology. One is reassuringly familiar. It is a more efficient version of what we have today. The other is transformational -- a gradual replacement of professionals by increasingly capable systems. In an Internet society, the professions will look remarkably different from today, and we will neither need nor want lawyers, doctors, teachers, architects, the clergy, consultants, and many others to work as they did in the 20th century.
