As Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to break (and fix) the internet, we all continue to circle around the same questions: Will AI eliminate the need for my job? Will robots take over? Where do humans fit into the mix?
These same questions were asked, believe it or not, back in the early 1970’s when the first ATM was built in Rockville, NY in 1969. Concerns arose about no longer needing to go to a bank teller and how the position would cease to exist shortly thereafter. But, as we all know nearly half a century later, people still feel safe and an element of familiarity when going to a bank to complete a transaction with an actual bank teller. In fact, bank teller positions reached an all-time high in 2007… who would have thought?
