In the face of generalized automation, work has gradually lost its primary meaning, sliding toward a set of tasks to be accomplished without added value nor understanding of the results. The presence of artificial intelligence on the machine side leads us even closer to a reconsideration of human work and its transformations. Will we change what we spend our time on? Will commitment, a search for meaning and values, and cooperation, take part in reconnecting us to the world of work? Does our reconnection with the Earth and with a longer time scale not predict a new relationship with work? Will our measured mastery of technology generate new professions? Rather than imagining its end, let us explore new ways of working that may serve to reconcile individuals with groups, cities with the countryside, and salaried life with real passionate interests.
