These are the Good Old Days

There is a broad spectrum of intriguing news parading across the Internet these days. I struggle with volume and at times with comprehension. I periodically just do not get it.

These pages are frequently about automation. That is going to have major impacts in the coming years on employment, workplace safety, and even injury and recovery management. Artificial intelligence and robotics are here to stay. They are permeating society and will likely change our world, work and beyond.

There’s a lithium mining boom, but it’s not a jobs bonanza

Traffic passes through Tonopah, Nev. on Oct. 6, 2022. The town of Tonopah, Nev., was born out of a silver rush, when more than 10,000 people moved in during the early 1900s, racing to make money from a prized natural resource.

Robots are coming—and it doesn’t look pretty for workers. Get ready for long hours, less pay, and fewer jobs.

NAO, a humanoid robot, entertains visitors at the SoftBank Robotics stand at the 2018 CeBIT technology trade fair on June 12, 2018 in Hanover, Germany. Americans who worry about robots taking their jobs are just “ fearmongers ” who’ve watched too many movies, right?

Artificial intelligence, automation, and robotics will boost workers’ productivity and spur economic growth while creating new, higher-paying jobs—or at least that’s the argument.

But new research shows the rise of robots may not be as beneficial for workers as some claim . Automation could have positive impacts on economic growth and productivity, according to economists, but workers […]

One of the industries that is most likely to be affected by the increasing use of robots and automation is manufacturing. In many factories, robots are already being used to carry out tedious, stressful or dangerous […]
