The future is automated, but it still requires a human touch. I’m Brian Banmiller on Business.

While it’s true that automated technology will eventually take over most jobs, especially anything manual or repetitive, humans are still needed. According to Forbes, people will be critical for any tasks that rely on human skills that computers can’t replicate. So, if you want to guarantee job security into the future, there are a few skills you should brush up on. According to Forbes, that includes critical thinking. The ability to find information you can trust and use it to make the best decision for your situation. Then there’s judgment and complex decision making. That’s the ability to understand the wider impact of your decision and who will be affected. One thing humans definitely have more of than robots is emotional intelligence and empathy. This is the ability to be aware of and control your emotions and the emotions of others. Robots, as we’ve seen in a number of movies, don’t have a lot of feelings. For more skills to acquire go to Good help will always be wanted. Brian Banmiller, CBS News.
