Automation with Haseeb Qureshi and Quincy Larson

Suddenly, automation is changing our world faster than anyone anticipated. For technologists, the world is becoming convenient and high-leverage. For non-technologists, the job market is evaporating.

Haseeb Qureshi and Quincy Larson join me for a roundtable discussion on automation, jobs, and artificial intelligence. Haseeb and I have had numerous discussions about this topic before, and Quincy is the founder of Free Code Camp, which teaches people to learn programming for free. If there is one upside of all these jobs being automated away, its that it will lead to massive user growth for Free Code Camp.

I enjoyed talking to Quincy and Haseeb as always.
