It turns out that while robots are good at many things, they are not good at everything.
So is that the end of human creativity? Not quite (at least, not yet). When Google introduced it in June, Magenta was accompanied by its first creation — a one minute twenty-three second song composition. While reviewers weren’t overly impressed with it as a song, they were very impressed by the fact that it was a computer that composed it. Like with music, Magenta and other computer art projects are creating works using neural network technology that, while not quite yet ready for the Louvre, are considered quite good, considering their source.

But the human race is not done yet. There’s another side that opines that robot tech is not as great a threat as many seem to believe.

It turns out that while robots are good at many things, they are not good at everything, especially tasks like making maps, easily identifying objects and other basic tasks that are needed to accomplish more advanced actions.
According to artificial intelligence expert and MIT professor David Autor, “Journalists and expert commentators overstate the extent of machine substitution for human labor and ignore the strong complementarities that increase productivity, raise earnings, and augment demand for skilled labor. Challenges to substituting machines for workers in tasks requiring flexibility, judgment, and common sense remain immense.”
