      Hi Friedakramer!

      Brilliant question! I’m very lucky that I can say BOTH! Working with machines can become rather boring and I know that I need the human element in my life & work. After all, machines do what they are instructed to do, people will give it their own interpretation which is fascinating to evaluate!

      Saying that some of the research ongoing from different researchers is looking at artificial intelligence. This basically means that they are trying to let machines make their own decisions.

      Question back to you, knowing that machines can make their own decisions and therefore give it their own personality…. does it make them more human? hmmz…. Now there’s a thought!
