Nobel Perspectives Live!

Missed the New York City event? Don’t worry. We’ll be hosting a new Nobel Perspectives Live! event soon with new Laureates and new ideas. Don’t forget to subscribe to get the details first.

Curious which skills will be the most valuable in the next 10 years? Wondering where new technologies will lead the future of work? What are some of the biggest obstacles facing humanity and how can they be addressed? For the questions that matter most, Nobel Perspectives Live! is here.

The Nobel Perspectives program teams up with Nobel Laureates in Economics to share their prize winning work and insights, and give a glimpse into their lives outside work. Two years after its launch, Nobel Perspectives Live! took this program from a digital platform into a live experience. From Sin-gapore to Shanghai and now New York City, the event tour asks some of the brightest minds to tackle questions that are closest to the hearts of today’s young generation – the students.

Should we have a world currency? The central bank must be subject to political supervision - there’s a danger having one emperor in the world.

Roger B. Myerson

When it comes to ethics in robots and AI, the focus is not on the machines, but the interaction between humans and the machines.

Peter A. Diamond

The main beneficiaries of new technologies will be our youth, the people who will suffer are those whose jobs are replaced by machines. To counteract jobs being taken by robots, you need a sense of adventure, and be willing to take risks.

A. Michael Spence

Change is inevitable, technology is accelerating, but it’s what you do with your skills that makes the difference. And we need luck too, but people who work harder, and are better educated, often seem to be luckier. So if you prepare well, when you have a serendipitous event or some good luck, what do you do? You don’t let it go by, you seize it because you’re prepared for it.

Robert C. Merton
