Artificial Intelligence Is Changing The Way We Work [Infographic]

Artificial Intelligence Is Changing The Way We Work [Infographic]

The nature of work is changing. From the introduction of industrial robots, to the growth of artificial intelligence, more jobs are disappearing or being taken over by technology. How will your business be affected?

Robotics have been slowly taking over jobs in industrial manufacturing for years. In the 1990s, there was less than one industrial robot for each one thousand workers. By the 2000s, there were more than two-and-a-half. It’s no surprise that robots are appealing to manufacturers, with 1 robot doing the work of nearly 6 people, robotics are a great way to cut operating costs.

Overtime, the value of […]

Three-in-five young Australians in the dark about mining careers: survey

Australian mining needs to be promoted as an attractive career. More than half of young Australians know nothing about a career in mining, according to research from youth agency, YouthInsight.

Additionally, the research revealed that just 30 per cent of students were interested in a career in mining or the mining equipment, technology and services (METS) sectors.Despite mining and METS providing 1.1 […]

The future of manufacturing lies in digital transformation

Mike Vincent, Deloitte Consulting C&IP Leader and Africa Industrial Products & Services Leader The South African manufacturing industry has come under significant pressure in the last decade with the traditional manufacturing industry currently in the throes of a digital transformation that is accelerated by the exponential growth of smart technologies.

The adoption and impact of Industry 4.0 in South Africa has been relatively low at a foundation stage in the manufacturing industry overall, with some sector differences.

The concept of digitizing everything is becoming a reality. Automation, artificial intelligence, IoT, machine learning and other advanced technologies can quickly capture and analyze […]

Bullshit Jobs by David Graeber Review

Bullshit Jobs by David Graeber Review

Graeber, an anthropology professor at the London School of Economics, was a mover and shaker in the Occupy Wall Street movement and is well known for his approachable critiques of neoliberal free market ideology. His new book, Bullshit Jobs: A Theory (Simon & Schuster; $27), sprang from a shorter essay he published in 2013 in a feminist-activist magazine called Strike , which quickly struck a nerve. (One that kept thrumming: on a Monday morning in 2015, an anonymous group plastered the London Underground with quotations from the writings.)

“Huge swathes of people spend their days performing jobs they secretly believe […]

Self-employed think artificial intelligence won’t majorly affect the workplace

Self-employed think artificial intelligence won’t majorly affect the workplace

Half of self-employed worker aren’t too worried about artificial intelligence Half of the UK’s independent workers don’t think that artificial intelligence will have a significant impact on the world of work.

Accenture data has predicted that the growing trend of AI in the workplace could double annual economic growth rates, but independent workers aren’t convinced.

A Qdos Contractor survey with over 1500 contractor respondents shows that: 50 per cent think AI will have ‘little impact’ on their career 21 per cent believe that AI will have a ‘ big positive impact ’ 11 per cent expect a ‘big negative impact’ 18 […]

Robots will not take over all our jobs

Robots will not take over all our jobs

A study shows that the fear may be far-fetched Today, advanced machines like robots pose a significant threat to jobs traditionally performed by human beings. So it’s no surprise that new technological developments in the market are faced with stiff resistance from interest groups like labour unions. Moreover, there are some economists and others who believe that robots could lead us into a future where there are no jobs left to be done by human beings. How realistic are such fears? What in particular does history tell us about the effect of machines on employment?

A 2017 paper by Katja […]

How the World’s Biggest Companies Are Fine-Tuning the Robot Revolution

How the World’s Biggest Companies Are Fine-Tuning the Robot Revolution

Fritz is more efficient at handling the dangerous and repetitive task of lifting the 8-inch metal-and-circuitry pieces out of the furnace. This leaves Mr. Rösch less exposed to potential accidents and gives him time to test 20% more parts than he did before the robots.

The big question surrounding automation has long been whether robots would compete with workers or help them. Initially, workers feared robots would destroy jobs across the economy. Scholarly research and real-life experience has eased that concern, although some types of workers and industries are ending up on the losing side.

Today, the question is more precise: […]

Why we need to protect our income from robot automation

Why we need to protect our income from robot automation

The future is here. It’s time to take action. Robots conjure images of some distant future – a crisp, white-walled existence. Except that time is now.

Last month, one leading futurologist predicted that the global robot population, already more than 57 million, will outnumber humans by 2048, and that’s a conservative estimate.

Automation is already ingrained in everything from warehouse management to selling financial products. Workers are worried that they are going to find themselves replaced in the jobs market; employer services provider ADP recently surveyed 1,300 working adults and found that a third believe their job will be automated within […]

What impact is automation having on insurance employment?

What impact is automation having on insurance employment?

Online streaming services ended the dominance of cable and satellite TV services, automated telephone systems have displaced receptionists, and fully autonomous cars threaten all sorts of commercial driving jobs.

In Ontario’s insurance sector though, the adoption of technology – think artificial intelligence, blockchain , and cloud services – hasn’t yet resulted in less jobs, according to a new report, “Better, Faster, Stronger: Maximizing the benefits of automation for Ontario’s firms and people,” from the Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship.

One reason that employment in the province’s finance and insurance sector grew by 35% between 2002 and 2016, in spite of […]
