CNBC published this video item, entitled “What Coronavirus Means For Automation And The Future Of Jobs” – below is their description.

A recent McKinsey study found that AI and Deep Learning could add as much as $3.5 trillion to $5.8 trillion in annual value for companies. The economic shock of the coronavirus pandemic hasn’t helped. In fact, Covid-19 could be accelerating the pace of automation. CORRECTION This video misstated Marcus Casey’s title. He’s an associate professor of economics at the University of Illinois at Chicago.CNBC YouTube Channel
