Should
 we
 be
 the
 machines’
 allies?
 

 

History
 is
 repeating
 itself
 in
 another
 different
 way,
 let
 me
 explain.
 
The
  industrial
  revolution
  affected
  the
  society
  in
  many
  ways-­‐
  positively
  and
 
negatively.
  People
  were
  afraid
  of
  lose
  their
  jobs
  for
  the
  machines;
  technological
 
progress
 was
 a
 threat
 for
 them,
 especially
 for
 textile
 workers.
 However,
 labor’s
 share
 
of
  GDP
  remained
  constant
  throughout
  this
  era

The
  parallel
  between
  these
  eras
  is
  the
  change
  that
  people
  has
  to
  do
  in
  their
 
mind,
  routines
  and
  lives.
  People
  from
  today
  have
  to
  invest
  on
  knowledge
  creation
 
instead
  of
  physical
  production
  and
  improve
  skills
  that
  computers
  do
  not
  have:
 
managerial
  expertise,
  “creation
  and
  social
  skills”3;
  and
  these
  ones
  can
  always
  be
 
improved
 by
 humans.
 The
 main
 difference
 between
 the
 revolutions
 is
 the
 situation
 of
 
the
 society;
 nowadays,
 people
 already
 taught
 and
 in
 most
 of
 the
 cases
 their
 studies
 are
 
run
  out
  due
  to
  innovation
  and
  technology
  that
  take
  jobs
  in,
  for
  example,
  services
 
sector,
 one
 of
 the
 most
 sectors
 affected.
 However,
 another
 difference
 is
 the
 reaction
 
and
  the
  capacity
  of
  accommodate
  the
  change.
  It
  means
  that
  people
  can,
  through
 
innovation
  and
  technologies,
  take
  advantage
  of
  them
  and
  learn
  how
  to
  be
  versatile
 
and
 groundbreaking
 -­‐
 no

 Like
 the
 increases
 of
 the
 number
 of
 people
 
that
  creates
  a
  digital
  start-­‐up
  with
  innovative
  ideas
  such
  as
  Facebook,
  Twitter,
  and
 
Amazon…
 These
 people
 do
 not
 had
 afraid
 of
 the
 alliance
 with
 innovation
 and
 shaped
 
theirs
 successful
 destiny.
 
Thereby,
  I
  think,
  like
  the
  authors
  of
  Race
  Against
  the
  Machine,
  that
  society
 
needs
  to
  ally
  with
  the
  new
  technologies
  because
  better
  team
  work,
  amongst
  human
 
and
  machines,
  can
  beat
  a
  human
  or
  a
  machine
  alones.
  For
  that,
  governments
  has
  to
 
educate
  systems,
  reorganize
  our
  societies,
  organizations
  and
  perhaps
  all
  the
  economic
 
system
 for
 the
 welfare
 of
 populations
 do
 not
 get
 worse
 and
 encourage
 population
 to
 
work
  with
  the
  new
  technology.
  Thus,
  history
  is
  repeating
  itself
  in
  terms
  of
  change,
  but
