There’s something very satisfying about waking up in the morning to find you’ve been featured in a New York Times article. Writer, consultant and workplace expert, Alexandra Levit spoke with me earlier this summer about some of the ways increasingly emotionally aware technology will change our work environment.
Given the preponderance of vanishing job doom-and-gloom, we focused on the idea that more and more we’re going to see “co-work” situations in which AIs and robots work alongside people to help enhance capabilities and productivity. Such scenarios will only benefit from these technologies’ growing ability to be emotionally sensitive to their human co-workers. Since this inevitably contributes to the growth of machine intelligence, it’s a win-win for both our tribes.
