Plus, there’s a major humanitarian crisis of refugees flooding into Europe. Thanks to the Paris attacks, people living there are now paranoid about all those refugees being undercover ISIS fighters.

“There’s already a hardware store [in California] that has a customer service robot that, for example, is capable of leading customers to the proper place on the shelves in order to find an item,” Ford tells Fresh Air’s Dave Davies.
In his new book, Rise of the Robots, Ford considers the social and economic disruption that is likely to result when educated workers can no longer find employment.
