That's hardly a new kind of question, but with increasing leaps in AI and robotics, the search for answers gains more urgency. Indeed, as we've reported in the past, to truly make most effective use of robots we'll need to work out how to best get along with them. So here are two interesting long reads that try to seek out some solutions. The first, from the New Yorker, explores the changing workplace relationship twixt humans and robotic helpers. (Though perhaps that should be vice versa?) The second, from Wired, is an incredibly emotional essay about how robots will shape the way humans think about—and, indeed, pursue—love and companionship. Neither has all the answers, but they will sure make you think.
