Will Artificial Intelligence Kill Work?

As artificial intelligence (AI) becomes better at performing narrow tasks traditionally done by humans, how will governments create policies to protect peoples’ livelihoods? Should it be up to governments to do so or will it create a new generation of entrepreneurs? Will AI create a new breed of welfare recipients or will it spur governments to dramatically reform welfare? Some have argued that, while some jobs will be displaced, new jobs will be created in their place.
