There is much fear of robotics and AI in all sectors. "People will be replaced by robots", they say, "we will all be out of jobs", they cry, "how will we all survive? "
However Mindi's article makes some very interesting points. We will adapt, we always do. New jobs that we have yet to dream of will come into existence. New horizons will open. I will probably not recognise the working world by the time my six year old starts out on her career.
It made me realise, as a history graduate, that we are incredibly privileged to be living through a time of such monumental change. Having studied the Agricultural and Industrial revolutions at school and university I am fascinated to be living in the days of the Technology revolution.
Rise of the machines: Are robots after your job? Should marketers fear for their jobs or embrace the rise of artificial intelligence and machine learning, so they can adapt now and stay relevant in the future?

But while fears that robots will one day wipe out the human race might be extreme and distant, the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) does have the potential to disrupt brands and those working within them in a far more immediate way. So does that mean marketers jobs are at risk, and that a new way of thinking is required in order to adapt to this transformed employment market?
