Prompted by an article from Anurag Harsh

Many believe that technology is diminishing our intelligence. In some cases this is true, even with the loss of ability to recall phone numbers of family and friends and do simple mental arithemtic.

But where does that leave the 35-50% of jobs that exist today which are at risk of being lost to automation?
