The Seven Stages of Automation

  1. A computer cannot possibly do what I do.
  2. OK, it can do a lot, but it can’t do everything I do.
  3. OK, it can do everything I do, except it needs me when it breaks down, which is often.
  4. OK, it can operate without failure, but I need to train it for new tasks.
  5. That was a job that no human was meant to do, let’s go find a new job.
  6. My new job is more fun and pays more now that a computer is doing my old job.
  7. I am so glad a computer cannot possibly do what I do.
