Daniel Susskind

Research Professor in Economics / Senior Research Associate at the Institute for Ethics in AI, King's College London / Oxford University
Dr. Daniel Susskind is a Research Professor in Economics at King’s College London and a Senior Research Associate at the Institute for Ethics in AI at Oxford University. His work explores the impact of technology, particularly artificial intelligence, on work and society. Breaking the news that automation and AI are transforming both blue- and white-collar jobs, he offers a pragmatic and optimistic outlook on how we can prepare for the transformation — including how to educate and train for the workplaces of the future — and shines a light on the extraordinary prosperity waiting on the other side of disruption. Daniel is the co-author of the bestselling book, The Future of the Professions, which calls for an update to the antiquated ways in which professionals such as doctors, teachers, and lawyers perform their work in our increasingly digital world where artificial intelligence becomes smarter every day. Originally published in 2015, the book was updated in 2022 to provide insight on the impact of recent technological advancements. His 2020 release, A World Without Work, was described by The New York Times as “required reading for any potential presidential candidate thinking about the economy of the future,” and was named to many of the most prestigious Best Books of 2020 lists. His new book, Growth: A Reckoning, will be released in spring 2024. His TED Talk debunking three prevailing myths surrounding the future of work has been viewed more than 1.6 million times. Previously, he worked in various roles in the British Government: as a policy advisor in the Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit, a policy analyst in the Policy Unit in 10 Downing Street, and a senior policy adviser in the Cabinet Office. He was a Kennedy Scholar at Harvard University.
