Advertising Not The Only Profession 'Programmatic' Tech Is Impacting

Advertisers shouldn’t be the only professionals worried about “programmatic” technologies replacing human workers, with “programmatic” in this case simply meaning any type of computer program.

Writes Advertising Age: “Marketing people may be worried about programmatic buying, and media people may be anxious about content-generating algorithms, but the harrowing lesson of our Video of the Week is that the issue of computer programs and robots taking over human jobs cuts across every possible kind of profession. And it's going to transform the global economy and change our everyday lives a lot sooner than you may think.”

The video is called “Humans Need Not Apply,” and was posted by CGP Grey, a YouTube channel.
