The Jobs We Won’t Lose to Machines
The only jobs we won’t lose to machines are jobs that are rooted in emotion. Jobs that require sympathy, empathy, respect, warmth, tenderness, and love.
When a robot says I love you. Even when the robot is made to look human — you don’t believe it because you know someone programmed it say that. The intention isn’t their own. And a robot is too predictable and perfect to connect like another human being.
What we really need for the future is a way to overcome our animal instincts of greed, arrogance, and pride. If machines can help us with that, the world will be a better place.
