My friend and colleague, Dr. Reshan Richards, is great on the topic of automation.  He reminds us that, as we gain time due to automation or efficiency, we should protect that time and use it for truly human interactions, whether that includes spending more time with our families, pursuing some kind of personal expression through an artistic side project, or doing the kinds of work that only we can do.
