Neuroscientist Dr. Tara Swart believes that we will be working with robots as coworkers within the next five years.
She shares her insights on issues and ways to take advantage of this shift. Since we are paid to use our brains, we will get more out of our brains if we understand its preferences, Dr. Swart suggests.
Since there’s a lot of uncertainty about what the modern workplace will look like in the next 5 years, Dr. Swart suggests that we consider how it might affect us:
How will you do things differently if you work with a robot coworker?
Which aspects of your cognitive power do you need to build to survive and thrive in an environment like that?
The workplace of the future will require us to consider how we can boost our efficiency with the help of technology, rather than let it distract us and negatively affect us.
