Applied Net 2018: Why brokers shouldn't fear automation

A robot

Brokers don’t need to fear job losses through automation, a conference heard.

Sharon Emek, former managing director of New York broker CBS, told the Applied Net conference in Nashville that AI would not make the roles of staff redundant.

“Automation does not mean fewer jobs, it means better jobs,” she said.

“It will mean that jobs will change, and even our working week will change. But humans will always be needed in a supervisory role.”
