AI replacing jobs - It does make for an interesting story. A revolutionary tale about robots and looming job losses. However, one major catch has been pointed out: there is not yet clear enough evidence that it’s actually going to happen. 

Although, automation is not necessarily bad...

Suppose it does occur - apart from making things faster with higher accuracy and efficiency, then won't automation through AI also create new categories of jobs? 

These are just some of the thoughts I had while watching the livestream of the #WatsonSummit in Auckland earlier this week. The one big, repeated theme from @ibmnz reinforced how #AI will augment rather than replace jobs or people.
