PEOPLE should not fear the impact on jobs from the growing influence of robots and artificial intelligence.
Henrik von Scheel, the Danish strategist credited with coining the concept of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, has declared that robotics and other industry 4.0 technologies can deliver “unparalleled opportunities” – without sacrificing workers.
“You really shouldn’t be afraid of artificial intelligence,” said Mr von Scheel. “Because people work with people; people connect to people and people sell to people.
“And this is also the core element of the fourth industrial revolution. People are key to our ability to adapt to new technology, to apply new skills, to be innovative and to see a future.”
