The Luddite uprising of the early 19th century pitted English textile workers against the machines taking their jobs. The machines won.

If, as experts warn, large numbers of jobs are at risk of automation over the next twenty years, are we likely to encounter similar scenes of upheaval? Or are media reports of robots stealing our jobs misdirected?

If machines can save us time and open up new types of roles, then surely we should embrace the change?
