The University of Auckland's Darl Kolb argues that instead of resisting artificial intelligence and the rise of robots in the workplace, we should let machines do what they are best at and focus on the unique qualities that make us human
In this video, Kolb says while talk about machines taking our jobs is concerning, people need to work more closely with machines in our future.
"Rather than seeing machines as our opponent, what we ought to think about is what machines do well – and they do a lot of things much better than we do. But also, what do we as humans do better than machines? And if we concentrate on that, it becomes a different story for us to think about."
Darl Kolb is Professor of Connectivity in the Business School's Graduate School of Management.
