Learning Verses Efficiency
This article in the Harvard Business Review is worth reading. It suggests that the drive to create efficient data science teams by employing specialists e.g. researchers, data engineers, machine learning experts, inference scientists etc. is the wrong approach. By narrowing the scope of the individual and creating efficiencies, you are removing the opportunity to learn and develop new capabilities.https://hbr.org/2019/03/why-data-science-teams-need-generalists-not-specialists

The Perfect Storm. How the Confluence of AI, Robotics Technology and Big Data Will Affect Human Employment
Ultimately, the widespread adoption of automation and robotics, as well as the rise of artificial intelligence will have profound impacts on the world, particularly in terms of human employment and even the global economy, such as the questions asked by Martin Ford, in his book, Rise of the Robots. Martin Ford suggests the outlook is bleak for millions of workers who define their self-worth in terms of their employment. Increasingly workers will no longer be exploited by those in control of capital and intelligent machines, they will be irrelevant to them.
Here is an interesting article in Wired on 'Rise of the Robots' by Martin Ford: https://www.wired.com/brandlab/2015/04/rise-machines-future-lots-robots-jobs-humans/ The book is extremely well written and worth purchasing: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Rise-Robots-Technology-Threat-Unemployment/dp/1780747497
