Will we ever reach a point where there is no more useful work for us to do? Where we can all just relax, and lead lives of leisure, until the end of time? In this talk, I will discuss three ways in which we might think we could run out of work to do. I will then discuss whether running out of work to do would be so bad, whether we should take steps to make sure we will not run out of work to do, and some other possible philosophical and practical implications.
