The opening issue of FARSIGHT explores how will work be done in a future that is more fluid, hybrid and digital than today. The questions examined include how artificial intelligence and robots will change work and labour markets, and who the winners and losers will be in the globalised and platform-based digital economy. We ask if the open-plan office heading to the grave, if the ‘end of burnout’ is in sight, and whether we might be working in virtual worlds by 2050. We take a closer look at the demands new generations will make of their employers, and how workplaces might change as a result.
