Reconfigurable Network Systems and Software-Defined Networking

"The Internet provides the infrastructure upon which our modern world is built. As a flourishing and fertile networking environment, the Internet has required innovative design and management practices to evolve. Into this environment, software-defined networks have come to describe a paradigm for exploring innovation in network design and operation. While software-defined networking (SDN) seems to have appeared suddenly, it is actually part of a long history of trying to make computer networks more programmable and to capitalize on the reconfigurability of the underlying systems."

In principle, jobs that are susceptible to digitalization, or broken down into routine tasks and automated, can lead to cognitive machines replacing humans. Today, this transition is spanning across multiple sectors of our society and economy. So, where does this leave humans in the Quantum Society of tomorrow?
