In a one-hour prime-time special, The AI Race shows Australian workers taking on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and discovering for the first time how much of their jobs could be automated.

New figures to be released on the program show that every Australian job will change in the coming years as AI automates not just physical tasks, but thinking ones too.

The special on ABC will coincide with the release of an online interactive tool on the ABC NEWS website so everyone can check how much of their job could be done by AI.

From veteran truckie Frank Black to a young final year law student and paralegal, Christine Maibom, AI is about to hit all jobs and professions.

We talk to international leaders in the field including Google’s Research Director Peter Norvig, an icon among AI researchers, who say the pace of change could be “a shock to the system” that will be “hard to recover from.”

One of Australia’s leading AI scientists, Professor Toby Walsh is calling for a national discussion about whether we need boundaries around how AI is developed and used in our lives.

The Farthest 9:30pm Tuesday
