Despite ongoing concerns about automation in the workplace, robotics focused on safety could lead to the creation of new jobs in other areas, particularly in engineering, maintenance and programming, a National Safety Council report found. Robotics in the workplace — especially autonomous mobile robots, or AMRs — may be able to reduce injuries and improve safety across a variety of industries, according to a May 25 report from the National Safety Council.
Overall, U.S. workplace fatality rates haven’t changed much in the past three decades, despite efforts to reduce injury and death. However, newer technologies may be able to help.

Artificial Intelligence machine learning. [Getty Images] Every major technological revolution sets in motion a concurrent revolution in work. With the development of organised agriculture thousands of years ago, foragers settled on farms. During the Industrial Revolution, steam engines drove those farmers into factories. In the late 20th century, the arrival of the personal computer swapped machines for monitors, and lathes for laptops.
Now, with the appearance of the latest wave of generative artificial intelligence (AI), humanity is about to embark on an entirely new working order.
Last year, the OECD predicted that AI would “radically transform” 1.1 billion jobs in the […]

Lately, it’s felt like technological change has entered warp speed. Companies like OpenAI and Google have unveiled new Artificial Intelligence systems with incredible capabilities, making what once seemed like science fiction an everyday reality. It’s an era that is posing big, existential questions for us all, about everything from literally the future of human existence to — more to the focus of Planet Money — the future of human work.
"Things are changing so fast," says Erik Brynjolfsson, a leading, technology-focused economist based at Stanford University.
Back in 2017, Brynjolfsson published a paper in one of the top academic journals, Science […]
