Changes in the world of work linked to robots and machine learning are often in the news today. How will these really be affected by advanced machine learning and AI ? We are engaging deeper in the mixed reality of both the virtual / physical workplace, with the future of creative collaboration through remote connected teams - robots, avatars and humans working together - and with future cognitive cooperations. How will AI effect the above and influence the ongoing moves towards the sharing economy, collective and agile working, zero hours contracts, universal income, home working and the gig economy?

Humans are clearly creative animals and we make creative technologies, yet can/will these technologies take over from the human creator and be creative in their own right? Is the artist of tomorrow an AI itself with its own outputs and presentations, or are we engaging from now onwards in a time of exciting creative collaborations and conversations with machine learning? Will artists set up the pattern definitions and allow the AI to create the flow? Can AI enable all of us to expand our creativity through “augmenting” ourselves ?
