Andrew McAfee gave a very insightful Ted video on the future of work and I would like to use this video to start this blog on healthy work insights.
We all know that the world of work is changing, and fast. Machine learning literally allow machine to learn, develop new abilities and even the beginning of new skills. In this context, the place of Human at work will also evolve, most probably to learn how to work with these new machines.
And when we talk about machine, we do not necessarily mean a humanoid robot, even if it is an example that we see a lot in media, even in this Ted talk. It can also be new types of assistant, like Whatson from IBM that is presented like nothing less than a cognitive technology that can think like a Human.
I will write additional posts on this topic, but as a starter, I would encourage you to have a look at the video below from Andrew McAfee to get an idea of what the future of work will looks like.
You will see that there are exciting new opportunities thanks to machine learning and Artificial Intelligence, but that goes together with the responsibility of the people who will create and manage them.
In a nutshell, this make me think about a quotation from Leon Megginson, former professor at LSU who stated: “It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change.”
Enjoy the video!
