“The more we automated, the more time we had to add other value. The kind only a human can provide.” – Jeffrey Henning, Chief Research Officer, Researchscape International
One of the biggest worries about the advent of AI revolves around the potential the technology has to take away people’s jobs. And as you may know, my take is that its true value can’t be realized without human involvement, so while your job may change, it won’t go away. Even if you want it to.
With this in mind, I am so happy to share this piece by my good friend and esteemed colleague Jeffrey Henning, who has been trying to get AI to eliminate his job but hasn’t been able to. In his words,
“I’ve been trying to replace myself with an AI for almost a decade. Instead, I’ve found it to be less like the Terminator and more like C3PO: an excellent, constantly-learning coworker, enabling me to do my job better than ever.”
This, to me, seems a reasonable and most-likely resolution to the populist and professional kerfuffle over AI’s role in the workplace. It’s a tool, and potentially a darn fine one. But it’s not going to put anyone out of work – even if you want it to.
Read for yourself – you won’t be sorry!
