Are You Developing Skills That Won’t Be Automated?

How to Prepare for the Rise of Robots and Artificial Intelligence

The jobs replaced by technology probably won’t ever come back, at least not in any major way. Given the huge momentum behind AI and robotics development, we should assume that many, if not most, jobs will be affected, even if they aren’t eliminated. Although we can’t know for sure what the future holds, it’s smart to prepare as if the […]

Massed at the starting line, the crowd of runners all looked identical. But this wasn’t your standard 5K. Instead, researchers wanted to test both speed and navigational ability as competitors wound their way through a maze, […]
