Remember the days as a little kid, playing with the neighborhood kids imagining a future filled with robots, hover cars, and smart homes? Well, those childhood fantasies are here. Artificial intelligence is no longer the next best thing, it’s here, and it’s coming in hot. Automation has been changing the job market for centuries, and you may not even realize it. The cotton gin automated how cotton fibers and their seeds were separated back in the 1700s. Henry Ford automated the production of cars with his assembly line. Now, chatbots have automated how companies interact with their customers to resolve issues.
