I really liked the video that we watched "What will future jobs look like?" With Andrew McAfee.
1. Because he mentioned that tech progress allows for output to increase, prices to decrease and quality to get better.
2. He also mentions that machines do the mundane jobs so we can focus on creativity, discovery and innovation.
And that leads me to the quote he had on the screen. "Technology is a gift of God. After the gift of life perhaps the greatest of God's gifts. It is the mother of civilizations, of arts and of sciences." - Freeman Dyson.. If technology is there we can concentrate on other things that need more attention.
In the Forbes article I read, they wrote about the Fourth Industrial Revolution is making everything more efficient. Just like in past years, people will have to be there for the relationship building, the arts, government and community, there will be jobs but also opportunities to make some jobs better and more time to focus on doing it better. A robot couldn't do my job. It is a lot of face to face, marketing person to person, making sure displays look correct and that people have access to certain products in specific places throughout the store. If I had a robot cart that could go get product for me, that would make my job way more efficent but it wouldn't take away the need for my role in the company.
