Jeroen van den Hoven talked about the chances of robotisation and digitization for the labor market during the seminar ‘Werkverkenners Live: My colleague the robot’ of BNR Nieuwsradio.

Jeroen van den Hoven thinks that we should keep an eye on the value of our work: ‘Work is an amazing cultural asset, it offers companionship, collegiality, the possibility to work together towards a common goal and can deliver respect and appreciation. What happens with you when you sit at home with your robot and your guaranteed basic income? Work does so much for people as moral beings. If this continues, we will soon be bored. ‘
