Dear brothers and sisters,The advent of robot in the workplace is beginning to affect us all. It is nothing less than a new industrial revolution. We’ve asked our two glorious interns, Morris and Jerry, to write something about it.
According to National Bureau of Economic Research(NBER) report.In the US between 1990 and 2007, the addition of each robot into manufacturing industries resulted in the loss on average of 6.2 human jobs. it also indicates automation decreased producing cost by twenty-five to fifty percent. The report says,”we estimate large and robust negative effects of robots on employment.”
Within years studied, robots were responsible for the loss of up to 670,000 manufacturing jobs in the States, this number could rise as more companies are expected to turn to industrial robots in the coming years. According to CNNMoney, 38% of jobs in U.S , 35% in Germany, 30% in U.K, and 21% in Japan are at risk of automation currently.
Another report from Natural News suggests, artificial intelligence is set to replace 50 percent of all jobs in the next 10 years especially in medicine and health area. For example, robots could remind patients to take medications and transmit remote diagnosis and checkups to doctors from the comfort of patients’ homes. Even in education, AI could replace a lot of basic teaching functions. This report also emphasizes that “AI will be the most significant innovation in all of human tech revolutions combined such as electricity, the industrial revolution, internet, mobile internet.”
On the other hand, Australian economic commentator, Ross Gittins, ran a similar line in a strongly worded piece decrying so-called ”futurologists” for scaring everyone about job losses. He wrote, “improving the productivity of a nation’s labour increases its real income. When that income is spent, jobs are created somewhere in the economy. Technological advance doesn’t destroy jobs, it displaces them from one part of the economy to another.” For instance, after ATM existed, many people thought bank teller would be replaced by machine. But in fact, it didn’t replace bank teller’s job.
This claim was as much a guess about the future of work as anything offered by dreaded “futurologists”, but the NBER report makes it even more tenuous. It emphasizes that there is only a very limited set of offsetting employment increases in other industries and occupations.
However, leading tech firms such as Microsoft and IBM claim: That nothing can replace human interaction. Renowned technologist Kai-Fu Lee acknowledged that touching a person’s heart and creativity are things that machines could never accomplish. Like your favorite football team win the champion, designers design skyscrapers, and lawyers fight for their clients.
Robotization is unavoidable. With millions of jobs at risk, how do we stay competitive? what should laborers do? And how do we distribute wealth in the future? Whether we like it or not, Robotization is coming, and we will have to find a way to adopt to it.
