Artificial intelligence and automation are coming, what will we all do for work?

Hi @mirkovanvliet & @viktorbos what do you think of the ideas Herman has?

I suggest to be reticent when anticipating the impact of AI and other technology-related changes as well. Impact on jobs in particular depends from two conditions: (1) The conscientious and 'purpose driven' implementation of AI by companies and (2) the willingness of governments to redistribute available jobs if necessary. Regarding the first condition; any short-termism will result in automatisation that reduces jobs for sake of increasing shareholder value. If we take time to deploy AI as part of policies to increase quality and sustainability, 'men and machine' might complement each others and jobs will be saved.
