The Big Quote: ” . . . not just AI, but technology will eliminate more and more routine, low-thought jobs, and high muscle or high danger jobs, warehouse jobs, loading ships, jobs, construction jobs, we’ve got to accept that it’s going to change . . . how do we redeploy our human resources, our people, some of whom have been with us 20, 30, 40 years, and let that be the driver of the process, instead of being enslaved by the process?”
