Predictions on a Silver Platter: How AI Is Creating More Effective Human Interactions in Luxury

For the moment, the human element is a necessary one; the technological limitations of AI means that it’s not yet ready to infer small subtleties in the sales interaction — things like mood, tone and sarcasm, for example. Functionality aside, there’s also the negative association with automation in a luxury setting. For an affluent, frequent customer, a single call to a service line that reaches the automated phone tree might be enough to scotch the brand experience. To be sure, as consumers become more comfortable with the technology, especially as more and more millennials reach a point of affluence, humans may no longer be a requisite part of the mix. For now we better augment humans rather than replace them.

How to prepare your kids for jobs that don’t exist yet

Amir Orad, CEO of business analytics software Sisense, says that children should be multidisciplined. “Our tradition of schooling from the Industrial Age makes you really, really good at one thing,” he says. “I think that’s very dangerous for the next generation.” Parents should encourage kids to be good at more than one thing as a way of being flexible, he says. By choosing interdisciplinary courses of study, kids will not only develop a variety of skills, they’ll also be knowledgeable about more than one subject area, giving them some adaptability as jobs change. Another way to think about it? Try out a lot of different stuff. Having a variety of experience will prove valuable in the future, he says.

Then they could find out whether the drivers are being delayed at a port or rail terminal or at the customer’s facility.
