Gerlind Wisskirchen, vice-chair of the IBA's Global Employment Institute, states that the legislation once in place to protect the rights of human workers may be no longer fit for purpose.https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/apr/04/innovation-in-ai-could-see-governments-introduce-human-quotas-study-says
