AI technology 'will take your job'

Robert Shiller, regarded as one of the most influential economists in the world, has said society is "in a panic" about artificial intelligence.

The Nobel prize-winner told a BBC-hosted debate at the World Economics Forum in Davos that "we don't know where [AI] is going".

"People are scared - and they are right to be scared," he said.

"Artificial intelligence is coming, and it will replace your job."
