In the Media

These days you can find robots at warehouses, in restaurants, and grocery stores. Artificial intelligence has computers completing jobs humans usually do. Together, they have a lot of people worried about the future of our workforce.

WBZ CBS News Boston's anchor David Wade sat down with CTL Director, Professor Yossi Sheffi, to discuss fears about the loss of jobs due to the advancements in AI, and Dr. Sheffi's new book, The Magic Conveyor Belt: Supply Chains, AI, and the Future of Work.
