The art of algorithms: How automation is affecting creativity (VentureBeat)

VentureBeat: The art of algorithms: How automation is affecting creativity. “As part of the so-called fourth industrial revolution, millions of jobs will be lost to automation, according to a recent World Economic Forum report. The net loss is expected to be as many as five million jobs by 2020, though of course a whole bunch of new jobs will be created, including positions in IT and data science. Jobs such as manufacturing and production are expected to be heavily affected, while another recent report indicated that more than 100,000 legal jobs will be automated over the next 20 years. But art… art is sacred.”
