Last month we touched on 3 things robots can’t do.
Let’s touch on the first: intuition.
Intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without proof, evidence or conscious reasoning, or understanding how the knowledge was acquired.
This enables us to say:
- “The future should look like this…” For instance, ‘no more slavery’, or ‘a phone for every human’. A vision for a destination that transcends transaction, instead focusing on an ideal.
- Forget ‘trends’, we’re heading over here…” For instance, predicting a new market or emerging sector with little-to-no proof. The ability to zag when everyone else zigs.
- “Forget data, this is what I think…” For instance, spotting a good hire or investment because it feels right.
Intuition behaves below consciousness, we experience it from our subconscious, away from focal awareness or critical-thought function (things AI will effectively simulate).
Aside from the eventually-autonomous parts of your work, how can you and your teammates bring more intuition to your work?
