4IR, artificial intelligence and its impact on white collar work in South Africa

RIA’s research editor and communications manager, Fazila Farouk, talked to Caledon FM’s Annette Jahnel on her Future Perfect show about the Fourth Industrial Revolution, artificial intelligence and its impact on white collar workers in South Africa. A major challenge she highlights is the fact that the jobs, which have traditionally allowed people entry into the middle class, are now disappearing. This is a major setback for a country ravaged by economic inequality.
