FORBES: How AI Might Create More Work Opportunity

Automation’s positive impact on jobs, work environment and lifestyle…

Lan Xuezhao, Forbes Blog Contributor, affirms the views expressed in our blog on May 23, 2018: Will Robots Take My Job?

 My view is much more optimistic. I believe automation is a necessity in the near term to maintain productivity. In the long run, we may even improve current lifestyles and collectively work better – fewer hours, for one, but also more safely, more healthily – with the help of AI.
