Robots are supposedly coming to take our jobs, but we can avoid the ‘robopocalypse’ by training our brains to think differently.

For Inma Martinez, a technologist-turned-venture-partner for Deep Science Ventures, the onset of robotic technology in the workplace won’t destroy us, but will unleash our creativity.

Speaking on stage at Inspirefest 2017, Martinez said that when AI and machines become commonplace in the workforce, their role will essentially be to pick up the slack of the monotonous admin work many of us dread.

As a result, humans will be encouraged to be more creative and ‘right-brained’.
