Luddite is a disparaging term for a person who opposes technological change or other innovation, or who is very slow to take it up.


Artificial intelligence (AI) - should it worry us?
"... as Sally Percy argues, AI is full of possibilities - capable of bringing enhancements to treasury operations that won't detract from treasurers' own analytical skills - far less their intuitive ones.
Indeed, it seems likely that treasurers will find themselves in an enhanced role, freed up to manage exceptional issues - the ones where their judgement is the deciding factor.
No Luddites here."
The Treasurer magazine, March 2017 p3 - Editor's letter.


Origin

The English Luddites destroyed industrial machinery which they believed was threatening their jobs, in the period 1811 to 1816.
