Robotics

The problem

As technology advances robots are slowly taking over jobs that would usually be occupied by humans, as they are able to get the job done at a faster rate and for less money.  The researchers found that for every robot added per 1,000 workers in the U.S., wages decline by 0.42% and the employment-to-population ratio goes down by 0.2 percentage points — to date, this means the loss of about 400,000 jobs. This a major problem as humans are losing their jobs and incomes, and can therefore not pay for bills, schooling fees.

It affects people in the workforce as it puts people out of the job as robots are replacing humans. According to this website highly-paid workers are more commonly affected, but the effects are more severe for less well-paid workers.

Pro's

Robots are much cheaper than humans and their cost is now decreasing. 

Because robots are more active and don’t get tired like humans, the collaboration between humans and robots is reducing absenteeism. 

Robots are more precise than humans which help them in performing tasks with more accuracy than humans.

There is no doubt that robots are significantly stronger and faster than humans.

Robots come in any shape and size, depending upon the need of the task.

Robots can be used everywhere where human safety is a huge concern.

Robots in warfare are saving more lives and have now proven to be very successful.

The human brain gets tired if it’s working continuously but robots never get tired of what they are programmed to do and they can work on certain tasks error free.

Con's

Where robots are increasing the efficiency in many businesses, they are also increasing the unemployment rate.

Typically cannot handle unexpected situations.

The ROI of your business may suffer if your operation relies on too many robots. They have higher expenses than humans, so at the end of the day you may not always achieve the desired ROI.

They can never improve their jobs outside the pre-defined programming because they simply cannot think for themselves.

Training those employees on how to work with the robots definitely has a cost attached to it. 

Robots have no sense of emotions or conscience. They lack empathy and this is one major disadvantage of having an emotionless workplace.

Robots operate on the basis of information fed to them through a chip. If one thing goes wrong the entire company bears the loss.

Experts Advice

Will They?

Half of the experts envision a future in which robots and digital agents have been displaced significant numbers of both blue- and white-collar workers, with many expressing concern that this will lead to a vast increase in income inequality, masses of people who are effectively unemployable, and breakdowns in the social order

Wont They?

The other half of the exports who responded to the survey expect that technology wont displace more jobs than it creates by 2025. To be sure, this group anticipates that many jobs currently performed by humans will be substantially taken over by robots or digital agents by 2025. But they have faith that human ingenuity will create new jobs, industries, and ways to make a living, just as it has been doing science the dawn of the Industrial Revolution

How to stop them?

You can’t simply put a stop on technology innovation, bans often create worse situations than allowing people to innovate by closely watching how and the impact to society. We need to learn how to navigate around the problem and create a solution which will enable humans to work together with Ai instead of using them as the enemy

Bill gates recently said that Ai is a positive for society and that “displaced workers could filll gaps that currently exist elsewhere in the labour market: such as elder care, teaching and support for special needs children.” Instead of learning new skills, this solution encourages workers  to use their existing skills in a new industry.

Robots will never replace most jobs that require a specific combination of rational thinking, common sense, flexibility, manual dexterity, worldly and special knowledge, empathy, and communication skills. 

The majority of jobs that have been displaced or that are at risk for being displaced are process-driven jobs. These are positions that can easily be automated, such as manufacturing, customer service and transportation. Robots and AI can simply do these types of jobs faster and more efficiently than humans. In order to have a productive future, many experts suggest humans and robots need to work alongside each other. Robots need to do jobs that can be automated, and humans need to do the jobs that require a personal or creative touch.

Our Solution

Our solution to the problem at hand is to train the next generation into more stem and creative thinking driven jobs that require creative thinking instead of process-driven jobs: such as; manufacturing, customer service and transportation. Robots and AI can simply do these types of jobs faster and more efficiently than humans. In order to have a productive future, many experts suggest humans and robots need to work alongside each other.

We will go to the government and make them change the legislation to restrict people from getting g a job in a certain area that relates to building as it would be unnecessary, and instead encourage people to get more stem related jobs which require innovative thinking instead of critical thinking. 

Most job sectors will still need a few people as robots can’t necessarily solve every issue unless programmed to. Robots still need programmers to fix problems as they can’t solve issues by themselves. Robots can’t think on their own so when a job comes to innovative thinking they can’t do the work and hence humans needs to step in and do the work. Jobs like admin, manufacturing, surgical work, and checkout. Up to 20 million manufacturing jobs around the world could be replaced by robots by 2030, according to analysis firm Oxford economics. This means ai is already taking over our jobs so we need to make a change now before its too late. About 1.7 million manufacturing jobs have already been lost to robots since 2000, including 400,000 in Europe, 260,000 in the US, and 550,000 in China 

 Our solution will work because we have done extensive research into the problem and have collaborated to come up with a well-designed solution. We will research and find companies that have developed and are using new technology and see how it has impacted the implement rate and the people working in the company.

Our solution will work as people would be able to continue working with their jobs without getting unemployed. People would be working on the creative side of work and robots would work on the simpler and more precise component of work. Our community also would learn to be more developed in technology as you would learn how to program the robots to do simple jobs more precise than what humans can do.
