The human touch makes a comeback

In a world increasingly dominated by algorithms, machine intelligence and the like, it’s easy for a humble human to feel a little obsolete sometimes. Yes, we know computers do all this stuff to make our lives easier and more fulfilling, but do they have to be so good at it?!

If you’ve ever felt this way, we have some welcome news. In the battle between humans and computers, humans may have finally scored a point. Go us!

Hail the return of the news editor.
As this Wired piece reports, LinkedIn’s Pulse news app will be relying on human editors to tailor its business and industry news to you. And LinkedIn isn’t alone. Snapchat has human curators select the clips in its news platform Discover and Apple may follow suit with its News app.

Nice to know we can’t be so easily replaced. Yet.
