Automation and the future of unemployment

@john2 We saw this before. But it was on smaller scale with long duration period.

Soft/Tech change a lot of things in last 30 years.

There an easy example: check how much labor doing Kuka robots at Tesla. They just cannot compete without them. And they trying to increase a number of tasks, that will be performed by robots.

Second example: Check an old video about how tech companies at China works(phone manufacturing as simple) and check some new videos about the same field. Yes, they still have people that check a final result give feedback and fix robots. But whole assembly line is automated.

Looks like Henry Ford dream is coming true!

@AUTOMATE yea curious to know what you’re working on, share more. =]

yes what are you @AUTOMATE - ing?

Automation is definitely the future…

But when I was working in consulting we had a good amount of clients we were trying to convince to move some of their apps off mainframes and a manual spreadsheets process. This was in 2018.

The cool tech companies will be quick to adopt but the rest of the companies out there most likely won’t care about adopting automation until they absolutely have to.

As we think Automation leads to Unemployment. But Automation provides a plenty of jobs in this career. As the technology get changing, our productivity production gets decreasing which leads to more increasing in demand. To survive in the IT field we need to train people on Automation which can increase in Employment in Automation sector. There are number of Automation tools which can give you better career.
Some of the Robotic Process Automation tools like: Automation Anywhere, Ui Path and Blue Prism are the trending career opportunities.

I wouldnt be too worried about it.

It brings lots of benefits:

Dangerous/ life-threatening jobs are increasingly being done by robots;

Someone has too build/ look after/ modernise etc. the machines that are being used, so its an entirely new field with millions of potential vacancies;

Job is being done nonetheless and revenue made, so with good laws/ distribution system, the society is going to be good off either way
