    Sarah Semark: Why I’m building a robot to steal my job

    WordCamp Nordic 2019Speaker: Sarah Semark

    June 19, 2019 — How do you teach a computer to design a website?

    I’ve spent the last year trying to automate my own job. I’ll tell you why that’s not such a bad thing, and how to actually go about doing it.

    We’ll investigate how automation isn’t all that different from other technological leaps of the past—as well as ways in which it is vastly different. We’ll touch on how emerging technologies can be an equaliser and the real-world application of machine learning.

    Along the way, we’ll talk about ethics, universal basic income, and how soon Judgement Day will be upon us.

    Finally, we’ll touch on how Gutenberg opens up new possibilities within the WordPress space, and how to take advantage of those opportunities.

    Sarah Semark: Why I’m Building A Robot To Steal My Job

    WordCamp London 2019Speaker: Sarah Semark

    June 6, 2019 — How do you teach a computer to design a website?

    You may have heard that robots are coming to steal our jobs. But the end isn’t nigh! I’m here to tell you why that may not be such a bad thing – and share some of my own adventures trying to automate away my own job.

    We will investigate how automation isn’t that different from other technological leaps of the past – as well as ways it is vastly different. We will touch on how emerging technologies can be an equaliser and the real world application of machine learning. Along the way, we will talk about ethics, universal basic income, and how soon ‘Judgement Day’ will be upon us.

    Finally, we will touch on how Gutenberg opens up new possibilities within the WordPress space, and how to take advantage of those opportunities.
