We like to keep things practical on this podcast. A while back (Ep. 31), I talked about why grit is one of the most important characteristics to teach your kids for success, more important than talent or luck. But no one is ever going to “out grit” a computer. As long as it has enough power and functionality, a machine will just keep on doing what it’s programmed to. So how can human beings stand a chance of out-competing neural networks, deep learning, and the rise of machines? In today’s episode, Eugene and I discuss the one human trait we have that may make it possible for humans to stay a step ahead of machines, and what that means for the skill set you should prioritize in your job. (Channel your inner Slytherin.) As always, thanks for listening! :)
