Automation is taking over manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, banking, retail establishments, logistics, and many other areas by storm. Tasks which traditionally were done by people are now being done by machines. But machines think differently than people, and one needs to develop a specific mindset in order to deal with them successfully. This is called Computational Literacy.
