Rise of robots ‘could see workers enjoy four-day weeks’

A four-day working week could become commonplace in Britain as automation and artificial intelligence increase workplace efficiency, a new study has concluded. If the benefits of rolling out such new technologies were passed on to staff, then they would be able to generate their current weekly economic output in just four days.
