A.I. Apocalypse

Season 2018, Ep. 9

It's always been an assumed equation: growing Artificial Intelligence equals decreasing employment opportunities. In this episode, Peter Cappelli and Greg Shea invite Dr. Stephen Herzenberg to share a different way of thinking, "Towards an A.I. economy that works for all."


Dr. Stephen Herzenberg is the Executive Director of the Keystone Research Center (KRC), a Pennsylvania-based, independent, non-partisan economic research and policy organization, which also houses the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center (www.pennbpc.org). Dr. Herzenberg holds a Ph.D. in economics from MIT. Before joining Keystone, Steve taught at Rutgers University and worked at the U.S. Congressional Office of Technology Assessment and the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL). At USDOL, he served as assistant to the chief negotiator of the labor side agreement to the North American Free Trade Agreement.
