The Stone Age, the Bronze Age, the Space Age, even the Information Age -- they're all so yesterday. According to a group of experts and pundits at the World Economic Forum (WEF), we are now entering 'The Human Age,' and there's no need to worry about robots and computers taking over our jobs.

Previous eras were defined first by the raw materials that transformed them – the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age, then they were characterized by the domains people conquered with ever-improving technology – the Industrial Age, Space Age and Information Age. Now we're entering a new age: The Human Age. according to Manpower Inc. Chairman & CEO, Jeffrey A. Joerres. He claims that human potential has now become the major agent of economic growth.
