Things Only Humans Used To Be Able To Do

Times are getting tough for medical office workers who's skills can be replaced by computers:

  • Answering Phones
  • Patient Check-in
  • Filing
  • Data Entry
What is next?

I Am Blue

I am blue today.  A bit sad.  Why?  I am worried about my community and its people.  Can they support themselves?  Can it remain vital?

How are the unskilled workers supposed to support themselves?  We no longer need file clerks and receptionists.  There is now, as we speak, software that can write software.  So even programmers will have to compete with robots.

I am techophile for sure and do not advocate halting technology's progression but I am scared for my friends and family and my children's future.

The past few days I have been interviewing people for a job opening in my practice and I see their desparation.  They are competing with machines and losing.  

Just saying.  This is something I'd have spoken to my dad about but he passed.
