Robots Can Restore our Humanity
Robots and AI can be powerful catalysts to redefine work in ways that will restore our humanity. Today's work is tightly specified, highly standardized & tightly integrated – something that algorithms can do much better than humans. As machines take over this work, we may have an opportunity to redefine work around things that are uniquely human: imagination, creativity, curiosity and emotional & social intelligence. There will be no shortage of this kind of work given our ever expanding desire for products & services that can help us achieve more of our potential. But the transition may be painful as our institutions will need to go through a profound transformation to make this possible.
