Scientists in all fields play an important role of advancing not only their industry but all of society. Automation and AI is helping accelerate the pace of discovery and business and the workforce needs to adjust to new roles.
Today a drastic shift is taking place as mobile technology, blockchain, and artificial intelligence (AI), among other digital technologies, change the nature of work for many. While a first reaction might be to worry for the safety of human jobs, it is more accurate to say that technology changes the nature of certain jobs.
