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.

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.
