The Machines Aren’t Taking Over.

Hi,

I’m wondering if¬†you’ve an uncomfortable sense that¬†‘the machines‘ are going to¬†take over jobs and leave us destitute.

Having followed this perspective and watched plenty of Hollywood blockbusters about¬†the destruction of humans, it’s clear this lurking possibility has been showcased for a long time.¬†Mash that together with new ways that we’re using¬†tech, Machine Learning and AI (Artificial Intelligence) and it could be¬†easy to be concerned.

“Analysts to the rescue!”

It’s exciting to see positive news spreading.¬†Delightfully there are experts¬†providing data that reminds us of history as an indicator for our usualchanging environment and the reality of how we will drive the tech we use. It¬†encourages thinking of an attractive future.

Enjoy this story patchwork:

Many analysts say there’ll be a net benefit with more jobs being created in areas that sound more fun than the mechanical ones that AI / MachineLearning / robots will do.

New technology does mean new learning.

It’s up to you and me to be curiously fascinated to¬†learn new technology (Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, apps, software, biotech). To usefully integrate it into our lives – including enhancing workplace and government policy for risks and opportunities.

Looping back to machines not taking over our jobs, it’s up to each of us as individuals to proactively¬†continue to evolve the work we do and in this, we’re in partnership with new tech.

We can do this with a lightness in our hearts to bring about positive futures.

Fly high online,
