LETTER: Stop worrying about automation and get a job

LETTER: Stop worrying about automation and get a job

Why should we as a society worry about low-income retail cashiers and fast-food workers whose jobs are being taken over by automation technology?

When you lose a job, the most logical thing to do would be to get another one. I had to whenever I became unemployed. The people who work these positions should take responsibility for their lives and adapt to the changes by either getting a different and preferably higher-paying job, or by going back to school to learn new skills to get such a job.

And I’m sure there are many of them these days who are doing […]

Will AI Be Empathetic? The HyperHuman Thinks So

Will AI Be Empathetic? The HyperHuman Thinks So

We’ve reached a level whereby when artificial intelligence (AI) is mentioned a certain cloud of worry hits everybody around. Reason; people have been made to believe that AI will not understand empathy, leave alone being empathetic, and that, intelligent robots could bring an irreversible disaster to humanity when the tech attains full independence. However, the HyperHuman thinks otherwise.

Let’s dig a bit into the AI fearmongering currently floating on the internet. Most people now believe automation will wipe away all jobs, while those who don’t care about losing employment (maybe because they are employers,) are concerned about finding themselves trapped […]

Robot-related job losses could create ‘Trumpism on steroids’

Experts predict that technology disruption, such as robot receptionists, will eliminate old tasks and create new jobs. by John Kehoe

Darrell West, the author of a new book, The Future of Work: Robots, AI, and Automation , warns the emerging digital economy is in the early stages of a disruptive phenomenon that could morph into "Trumpism on steroids".

West’s book, due to be released next week, explores in detail the potential for technology to replace workers between 2020 and 2050. His forecast may send a shudder through millions of blue and white collar workers, in both wealthy and developing countries."In the […]

How tech affects women

How tech affects women

There is widespread discussion at present that robots and technology may take away jobs in the apparel sector in Bangladesh as well as in other developing and developed nations across the world.

It is thought that in the labour-intensive world, repetitive tasks previously done by humans can be done in far more efficient, effective way by the machines. Advanced technologies like AI and machine-learning might be able to perform, even the white-collar jobs, better than humans.

Whether technology will threaten jobs across the world or not is a fresh debate. More specifically, it is being discussed that technology upgradation will specifically […]

Here are some excerpts of the interview, […]

MANILA: As Asia and the Pacific seeks inclusive and sustainable economic growth, countries are adapting to the possibility that new technologies in fields such as robotics and artificial intelligence may lead to challenges for some industries and groups of workers, according to participants at a high-level Asian Development Bank (ADB) seminar held here on Friday.

“Advances in new technologies will raise incomes and increase demand from Asia’s rising consumer class,” ADB President Takehiko Nakao said at the Governors’ Seminar during ADB’s 51st Annual Meeting. “Countries that maintain flexible policies, support improvements to education, and put in place a stronger social […]
