Robots, AI, automation—many jobs will change as a result of these technologies. Some may even disappear. But if history is right, most changes will be good ones.
Between 1982 and 2012 employment grew significantly faster in occupations that embraced the use of computers. As automation eliminated routine, repetitive work, humans had more time to do what machines can’t do—creative work. The future will need everyone to unleash their creative potential to solve complex problems, make new connections and generate ideas. The future is creative.
