Robot colleague – job killer or opportunity?

Our working world is undergoing radical change. Many people are afraid of soon becoming superfluous. The film shows the opportunities, but also the limits of robotics, automation and artificial intelligence. There is no job that is not affected by digitalisation. That’s why experts have been predicting gloomy times in recent years: Almost half of all professions were supposed to disappear. In the meantime, hardly anyone still believes in these drastic figures. Nevertheless, we are in the middle of the 4th Industrial Revolution.
