Automation & An Insider’s Perspective on Shark Tank w/ Martin Hill


The latest jobs numbers are in and unemployment is still at five percent. The scary thing is… it may soon ratchet upward. To kick off this week’s episode, Marc discusses the advances being made in automation – and how robots could ultimately displace millions of workers. It’s not all bad, of course; some of this technology will indeed be life-changing. But there are lots of heavy implications.
