Dorn, David (2015). The Rise of the Machines: how computers have changed work. UBS Center Public Papers 4, University of Zurich : UBS International Center of Economics in Society.

Abstract

The so-called "Rise of the Machines" has fundamentally transformed the organization of work during the last four decades. While enthusiasts are captivated by the new technologies, many worry that these machines will eventually lead to mass unemployment, as robots and computers substitute for human labor. Are computers just about to take over from humans? You will receive the answer to this and related questions from Prof. David Dorn, a specialist in international trade and labor markets.
