A short time ago I saw this video and feel like it would be a good share for anyone interested in the broader implications of AI developments: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Pq-S557XQU

Now, I do think that in some areas of the video, the creator is not completely informed about how well AI performs in real life environments. Specifically the self-driving car example, as well as presenting Watsons’ Jeopardy example as some kind of ‘side job’ achievement (while I would argue less AI is required to perform expert recommendations such as shown for medical diagnosis), is not quite on spot. But as a general overview it is a nice introduction into the discussion of how life will need to adapt in the future to accommodate technological achievements - even if they were meant to relieve burden in most cases.
