Last week, we discussed the possibility that some roles are likely to be replaced by machines within the next decade. Today, we discuss the opinion that although some roles may be replaced, the ‘human’ element within a business is still an important and much-needed factor.
Humans – a show on Channel 4 (UK) that was aired a few months ago and was based on Swedish science-fiction drama, Äkta Människor. Set in the near-future, the show focuses on ‘Synths’ – highly advanced robots that have been developed by ‘Persona Synthetics’, whose tagline is ‘Closer to Humans than Ever Before’. These ‘Synths’ have become commonplace, with the show examining their impact on society and, of course, on humans.
