There’s a lot we can learn from machines, and a lot machines still need from us. Despite the bleak outlook we often get from Hollywood or economic reports, there’s a lot of potential for a positive, symbiotic future between man and the machine.
So don’t let yourself get taken in by the myth that machines are coming for your job, or that there will be no jobs at all in just a few years.

Who knows? One of them could be a dream career beyond your wildest imaginings.
