This means that although most service and manufacturing jobs will be replaced by robots, those of you who can think critically and apply your emotional intelligence in making predictions about those around you will have plenty of work.
In other words, staffing professionals, the world is your oyster.
That is, if you follow the logic of Ian Pearson, a fellow at the World Academy for Arts and Science:
"That's a human job I can't really imagine people following R2D2 as their prime motivator," he said.
Pearson's main point was that as robots make certain jobs easier, especially those having to do with finding information or data, humans will have more time to focus and work on things robots can't possibly master on their own.
"You spend more time with colleagues, more time in meetings, more time in emotional analysis and trying to sway people," he said. "All of these other human skills become more important as the information skills become less important."
