In an increasingly digital world, we are often told how jobs will change as the human contribution is increasingly mechanised, automated, digitised and replaced by an array of increasingly intelligent technology. But how are we responding to this? Are we planning our workforce and skills of the future – or are we simply in denial? How will our evolutionary behavioural characteristics play out as we, as humans, struggle to find our place in a world increasingly dominated by pervasive data, hyper analysis and machine intelligence? Will it all work out in the end – or are we creating a global digital disaster? Are we beyond reason?
