In The Future of the Professions, Professor Richard Susskind and Daniel Susskind predict the transformation and decline of today’s professions and the systems that will replace them as technology transmogrifies the way we all work. This provocative book depicts a society where we will neither need nor want to consult doctors, lawyers, architects or other professionals in ways that are recognisable to us today. Richard and Daniel are interviewed by Lord Neuberger, President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom.
