It’s no secret that the word “future” has a futuristic association with it. With the rise in automation, some may wonder if the future of work means replacing tasks with pure automation. Take, for example, AI-generated art. Some may look at automation as a way to automate tedious tasks, while some are confident in its ability to help artists conceptualize at a massive scale.
While automation may be capable of making processes more efficient, it can miss the mark on the emotional and human aspects of work. Sure, AI can be trained, but it requires extensive learning of connotations, social constructs, and more in order to produce work that doesn’t feel impersonal. As the future of work is all about creating a better workforce for the future, it’s important to maintain a balance between efficiency and personalization.
