As technology continues to eliminate many of the tasks humans used to do manually, the question remains what can be fully automated and what is still best guided by a human hand.  For some, it's all or nothing, man or machine. But what of a much more complex situation? To say go from a self driving car to one that no longer requires a steering wheel?

For retail executives the choice of what automation to use  - and how much - is an especially intriguing question in an industry that has put best practices into place which have worked successfully for decades. 

In this episode of Tech Talks, EDITED's Senior Vice President of Retail Science, Michael Ross, and John Squire, Founder of Dynamic Action discuss the human versus automation equation. What is the difference between humans making decisions and those where humans are in the loop, being assisted by a machine? From human in the loop with exceptions to human on the loop and finally to a world of full automation.
