We are galloping towards a world when machines will be doing most of the work. That’s good news and bad news. On one hand, it means that most work will get done faster, cheaper and with fewer errors. On the other hand, it means a lot of people will lose their jobs, especially those who do things which a machine can do more efficiently, like driving cars or crunching numbers.
This demands that we build skills which artificial intelligence can’t copy, at least not as easily and not sometime shortly.
Writing is one such soft skill. The ability to form an emotional connection with other human being using words is a skill that can future-proof one’s career.
