more than 120 countries. is bloomberg. "bloomberg technology" is next. >> i'm emily chang. this is "bloomberg technology." coming up, u.s. unemployment low.a nine-year but jobs are still under threat from the rise of a.i. and automation will be a deep dive, on what kind and how many. of anotherbreaking high-profile attack in saudi arabia. will the incoming trump able toration be effectively fight cyber warfare? hiring yet another head of product, we'll recap the our eyeies that caught
6:02 pm
this week. first, a mixed picture in the u.s. jobs report. workers todded more their payrolls and the to aloyment rate tumbled nine-year low, 4.6%. 4,000 manufacturing jobs were lost. earnings fell a tenth of a the participation rate continues to hover near the 1978. level since it's a kind of weakness that andtrated the middle class that president-elect capitalized on throughout the campaign. oure're gonna bring back jobs to pennsylvania. [cheering] back ourgonna bring jobs to the united states. your car industry is being michigan.y from it's happening. if i'm elected, you won't lose one plant. will be the greatest jobs god ever created! blames trade,rump
6:03 pm
others blame robots and say the rise of automation is really causing the decline in manufacturing jobs. so we want to know, how big a bite is automation taking out of the u.s. workforce and what do it?o about joining us now for two visions of the future, tom, author of "only humans need apply" and martin ford, author of the book "rise of the robots." gentlemen, thank you for joining us. concern.ot a new human jobs have survived multiple technological revolutions. martin, i'll start with you. what makes this one any different? >> well, i think the biggest different is the robots, sort of machines, the limitedms are, in a sense, beginning to think. they're taking on brainpower, cognitive capabilities. it's not just about muscle power or manipulative type jobs anymore. becoming intellectual work as well. that's going to have a much more
6:04 pm
broad-based impact, going to scale across not just whitecturing but a lot of collar jobs. a lot of jobs in the service sector. a more tom, you have positive view in that humans plus machines equals the best case scenario. what incentive is there for a company like ford or carrier, companyconditioning that has been such a hot button issue, what is the incentive for them to add automation at this point rather than keeping the jobs they have? >> well, you know, pure automation is basically a pain for us in many ways. we often try to escape it whenever we can. get an interactive voice response system and we yell, agent! press zero as quickly as we can. so i think most organizations will benefit more from an strategy of augmentation, you know, smart alongside smart machines. i don't deny that there will some job loss on the
6:05 pm
margins. but i'm not quite as pessimistic is about how many and how quickly. >> so, martin, let's talk about kind of jobswhat you're seeing disappear and when. >> well, the basic rule is that any job that is on some level routine and predictable -- if you're coming to work, doing the same kinds of things over and over again, facing the same kinds of challenges, if another person could study a record of everything you've done in the that, figured on out how to do that job, then bet job is going to susceptible to machine learning, artificial intelligence, robotics. no one knows for sure when this is going to be a big impact but nextld estimate within the 10, 20 years, this is going to be perhaps quite disruptive. i think there are other people who have looked at this and come to a similar kind of conclusion. there's a very famous study done by researchers at oxford that came to the conclusion that about half the jobs in the u.s.
6:06 pm
could potentially be automated within about 20 years. that's just a very rough you ane but it gives idea of the magnitude of this. >> so, tom, when you look at the statistics, it costs much less than a robot to do the same job as a human. same amount of manufacturing output for far you could today than a couple of decades ago. optimistic?ou so manufacturing jobs have been in decades.ow for >> they have. i think it's likely that there thosee some return of manufacturing businesses to the u.s. not a huge amount of jobs, i agree. but for centuries, you know, when we automated farms and factories, producing textiles in the 19th century, there were jobs for people who understood how the machines work, how do you configure them, them, improve them, and i think that will continue to be the case. exactly how many
6:07 pm
jobs will go away when, as martin suggests, but if you look bank tellers,of there are just as many bank 1980,s now as we had in despite a.t.m.'s and despite online banking. the same number roughly. so this is a slow process. we humans often find other things to do. >> what kind of manufacturing jobs do you think could actually back to the united states? we know that a deal has been 1,000ith carrier to keep or so jobs in the united states. but it seems like these moretions are going to be one-offs. and you have folks out there saying, manufacturing jobs are never coming back to the u.s. anytime soon. apple is never gonna manufacture their phones in the united states. did, theif they process would be highly automated. it would be highly automated. jobs, working be on those robots, repairing them, configuring them in the first the work.o
6:08 pm
300t's not going to occupy million people in the united states. but if you're assiduous about learning about these technologies and how you can add value to them, i think you'll be fine. martin, you think that a full-on worker revolt is on the horizon? wonder, are some of the frustrations we saw that trump of theinto, the angst middle class, is that a sign willwhat you believe happen is in the process of happening? >> yeah, absolutely. i believe that it's maybe kind leading edge of the disruption that's coming. i think that the people that voted for trump and were enthusiastic about that, they would be much more likely to ore to global trade immigration. they may not understand the technology is already playing a role in the situation they're in. but really, technology has been the primary culprit in destroying good, solid middle class jobs chg and instead, what
6:09 pm
we're seeing is the generation of fast-food jobs and jobs at walmart, things like that. one of the leading forces causing that to happen. it's going to accelerate, become a much bigger issue in the future. i think it will lead to absolutely -- to political, social upheaval, if we don't figure out a way to adapt to that. >> here's a question i'd like to you.oth of tom, i'll start with you. if you're in high school today, what do you tell this high study to pursue? is it computer science or bust? tom? >> well, i think everybody in high school and college should between onechoice of two basic directions. one, do you want to work with all day? you know, work alongside them as a colleague basically? not want to work with technology at all? i think there will be jobs for want to kind of step aside from these technologies and do work that's highly creative and empathetic and totally unstructured. jobs in ourthe
6:10 pm
society, i think, will involve working closely with technology. the betterrobably bet, if you can tolerate working with smarty machines. >> so, martin, what would you tell a high school senior right now? >> one of the paradoxes of this is that people always think, if or work with computers you're working with information, that that's going to make you safer. actually, the reverse can be because a lot of those white collar jobs, information based jobs, are easier to automate. includel, at one point, computer programming. the safer areas are going to be skilled trades jobs, electricians, plumbers. it's still science fiction to be able to build a robot that can autoat an electrician, an mechanic, a nurse, for example. those jobs require a lot of mobility, dexterity, problem solving, interaction with people.
6:11 pm
then on the more skilled side, youdriven really want to be doing something creative, building something new, as opposed to doing something routine or you want to have that deep kind of interaction with other people, with a patient in health care or maybe with a business-type relationship, you know, if you're in the commercial sphere. but you need something that's routine and predictable and repetitive. >> interesting. right, martin ford, tom "onlyort, author of humans need apply." this is going to be a great debate over the years. another story, the state-sponsored hackers who a digital bomb over the last two weeks have damaged systems at the saudi central bank. targeted at least six government entities with mall "liked malware linked to iran.

6:13 pm
6:14 pm
>> let's turn to politics now. president-elect donald trump announcing that he's picked generalmarine corps james mattis. mattis has extensive military experience. trump's choice mean for the many cyber security threats around the globe? joins us by phone. starts start with general
6:15 pm
mattis's reputation, when it comes to issues like security and cyber security in particular. know about some of his views on these issues? who has he is someone spoken about these issues for quite some time, even during his tenure in the obama administration. he is someone who has raised the issue of cyber threats, as far as back as -- as far back as publicly, and perhaps further. but cyber security is something that president-elect trump has to be one of his top priorities within the first 100 administration. so this is something i would expect both of them to work on in the new administration. very recently in active duty, unusual nor a defense secretary. desire tohere's a have someone who has spent more time in civilian life at the top, so there can be a balance of power between them and the military. how do you think this will view on warfare and cyber warfare, technology on the
6:16 pm
that he'sven experienced this so recently? >> the sources that i speak with trump transition team tell me that they viewed his recent military experience asset, and part of the reason why president-elect chose him for this position, they think that his frequency with the latest national security risks, including cyber security, are part of the reason that they wanted to choose him. so they view that as an asset. but you are right. it is a bit rare. >> now, state-sponsored hackers have conducted a series of on saudi arabia over the last couple of weeks. is this something we can expect trump or mattis himself to comment on? thee haven't seen much of transition office weighing in on issues of the day. just -- we hear that president-elect trump did reach out to the taiwan government, which is incredibly rare. we haven't heard hutc much from.
6:17 pm
i would expect them to weigh afterthose types offishes inauguration -- types of issues after inauguration. are we expecting through the weekend and into monday when to additional cabinet appointments? >> well, of course the big meeting for bloomberg's audience is of course the goldman goingive, gary cohn, he's to be meeting with trump this weekend. the next big post is secretary state. obviously lots of rumors, everyone from mitt romney to thetor bob corker, republican from tennessee. he'll continue on his thank you tour. yesterday we were with him in cincinnati. he's headed to north carolina on tuesday. >> all right. kevin, our bloomberg politics reporter. thanks so much for that update. check in with you again on monday. pandora and sirius xm. ya's shares surged on reports of a potential

>> russian intelligence officials did more than just hack and leak documents during the u.s. presidential election. also played an active role on social media to influence perceptions about the race. says the cyber security
6:21 pm
firearm fire eye. the company says materials stolen by russian intelligence were promoted by fake online accounts and personas. joining us is the director of threat intelligence. laura, what exactly did you about the social media propaganda part of this operation and how it worked? >> yes. thanks. so the social media aspect that we've seen over the summer in particular is just one of the multi-pronged approaches that russia engage in over time in what they would call warfare.on what we've seen, like this that these personas are adopted and appropriated real-life type of groups. then the message they spread is much aligned to what russia their foreign policy. >> so were they trying to convince people to change their just reinforce anti-clinton views? far more indirect.
6:22 pm
a lot of what we see is the personas, and a lot of this happens on twitter, that fro with this to and journalists, is about spreading particular message. for instance, information about the syria conflict, nato-ukraine topic, the u.s. presidential elections, particular angles of tweet will be sent to key influencers. get the message will amplified by the network of how many different users that individual or group is connected to. message, andis the in this case over the summer, one that promoted a lot of the discussion or promoted the , and the d.n.c. hack, that would be the core piece that these groups would be the way that they spread their message out to key influencers. your chairman talked about this as a sort of dawning of russia as a cyber power, anything we've seen
6:23 pm
before. russia, of course, has completely denied connection to this. how confident are you or how were you able to prove that is indeedtelligence behind this? >> well, so this is a sustained campaign that we've seen for years. what's really different about this summer is the groups that we've long tracked, the russian government or believe to be sponsored by the russian government, exhibit a couple different qualities. one is that the tools they use have been written in the time zone, written in russian. they have the evidence of tools that are built to last. so pal ware that -- malware that gets in the system, that can be time, someone who is really practiced and sophisticated behind the build on these. other key elements, like the types of targets these groups go after and we start to see a pattern emerge, over seven, eight, nine, ten years haveow these groups perpetrated activity aligned to russia. this summer is different, we're now seeing
6:24 pm
activity directed to the u.s. in this case, directed at, how do you get at questioning one of the core institutions, voting? and that your vote matters? that's been very much the focus groups we've tracked over time. >> now, there's also been within the united states from computer scientists that the election results show the potential that they may have been hacked. believe't necessarily they were, but that at least they should be verified. any evidence that the election results themselves were hacked? don't have instances where we've seen that. that i'll leave to the election others whond also to have direct evidence. that's really what's key here. we need to see direct evidence that, through a network investigation or through the people looking at that network. our side, we haven't seen evidence of widespread tampering or hacking of the election.
6:25 pm
we have seen is this influence campaign over time work ofthink is the groups that would be working on behalf of the russian government. thisw, with russia taking to a new level, using new tactics, what does this mean for the future of cyber warfare and how the united states might retaliation? >> information warfare, this concept that states can engage in the way that minds are melded, in the way that you a perception around policy or around a particular regime, this isn't something scenehe u.s. has long has -- a russian concept or one that they would rather not adopt in terms of regulating around it or creating any sort of ban. for the lastu.n., 20 years or so russia's long in an information weapons ban. the use of information to change outcome.c the u.s. has long seen that as the potential to bridge unfree
6:26 pm
and first amendment rights. so how do we start to deal with the reality that information can a weapon, that information in this domain in particular, cyber varietyan be used in a of different ways, more than just hacking? but this is about minds and how we think about that. and take appropriate steps to have stability in the differentips between countries. >> all right. fascinating stuff. director of threat intelligence. thank you. much more ahead. a reminder, "bloomberg technology" is moving to a new time. liveing monday, we'll be at 2 p.m. pacific. 6 a.m. in hong kong. this is bloomberg. ♪
