As I see things like data analytics, artificial intelligence, and metrics become more prominent in our workplaces and our home lives, I’m left to wonder about our humanity and whether we are losing sight of that special human something that separates us from the machines.


If you follow the headlines about technology and the future of work, you’re probably starting to get a little nervous. At best, you’re worried that you’ll have to find a new job in a higher-skilled field and maybe have to go back to school or retrain. At worst, you’re imagining a dystopian future where automation and artificial intelligence have left us all unemployed and under the rule of robotic overlords.
