Technology’s place in design
The team at MacNewbie of course love technology, and enjoy seeing new technological advancements get released into the world.
But what if we told you that as technology moves forward, the chances that robots will become a big part of our lives are ever increasing – maybe even stealing our jobs in a few years’ time.
According to a report from the University of Oxford, the jobs that are most likely to be taken over by robots include the roles of telemarketers and watch repairers, which both appeared in the top 20 list. Creative jobs got away a little more likely, with the roles of Art Director and Graphic Designers all ranked highly in the roles least likely to be taken over by A.I.
Why are creative jobs harder to mimic?
Precision Printing, business stationery expert, has delved into why this is by interviewing five design experts and finding out what makes them tick. By gaining insights into the minds of designers, they’ve discovered what’s so human about creativity, and why it can’t be replicated.
