The case for humanities in the era of Technology..

A bachelor’s in humanities offers a number of career paths that require right brain thinking and have high earning potential. Creativity and critical thinking skills are valuable assets to many employers. The number of students choosing to opt for the Humanities has gone up as new career options are becoming popular in this stream.

Microsoft president Brad Smith and Harry Shum (Artificial Intelligence and Research) have this to say in their book “The Future Computed” –
“As computers behave more like humans, the social sciences and humanities will become even more important. Languages, art, history, economics, ethics, philosophy, psychology and human development courses can teach critical, philosophical and ethics-based skills that will be instrumental in the development and management of AI solutions.”
