Impact of knowledge work automation on Design
According to McKinsey & Company knowledge work automation, is: “the use of computers to perform tasks that rely on complex analyses, subtle judgments, and creative problem solving. These capabilities not only extend computing into new realms, but also create new relationships between knowledge workers and machines.”
As design and technology converge designers should embrace this automation to enhance, rather than diminish, the creative process.
