Bill Ryan, S.J., PhD will explore the present explosion of robots replacing workers in such varied fields as self-driving cars and care for the elderly, in a time of increasing unemployment. He will raise the basic question whether such new socio-economic problems can really be solved in our narrow growth-for-profit model.
