Dr Denny Oetomo, from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, has spoken to Business Spectator about a recent YouTube video that posits a future where robots will take over our jobs.

Dr Oetomo argues that the logic behind the video is flawed.

“First world nations, which constitute the major push of automation, will not be able to sustain their economies by investing into technologies that causes a quarter of their workforce to go unemployed,” he said.
