  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Rise of the machines: Swedish employees trust state to protect, retrain them” – below is their description.

    Economic forecasts have predicted millions of people losing their jobs worldwide as robotics, automation and artificial intelligence are increasingly used everywhere from factories to farms.

    But people in Sweden are not threatened by these machines because they have faith the country’s economic model and welfare state offers them enough protections.

    Instead of being retrenched they believe they will be retrained, doing the higher-functioning jobs their automaton counterparts cannot do.

    Al Jazeera’s Paul Rhys reports from Stockholm, Sweden.
