In the course of recent years, automation abilities have expanded definitely. Through incorporated work processes and data platforms, a wide scope of opportunities has made it feasible for organizations to automate their day to day and vital procedures so as to expand effectiveness.
Obviously, the majority of that is hypothetical. For tech organizations, particularly those in the fast-developing Asia Pacific region, one concern matters most importantly: is automation justified, despite all the trouble? All the more explicitly, by what means can the idea enable me to enhance incomes and develop my business while keeping up or bringing down operating resources?
A take on some of the key features of the bad business utopias that are busy colonizing the future. Photo by Morsa Images/Getty Images The near future is more likely to be a neoliberal dystopia than the tech-enabled utopia conjured up by big business, writes Peter Fleming in The Worst Is Yet to Come: A Post-Capitalist Survival Guide . He argues that we need “radical pessimism” to aim for the future we actually want, and aids the effort with sardonic humor that skewers the mythologies of our exploitative economic system.
In 1949, the right-wing economist F. A. Hayek published […]
Image Credit: Boston Consulting Group If you’ve been keeping up with articles about technology, you know that automation, robots, and artificial intelligence are the biggest threat to employment of humans in the United States. What will happen to our society if (as we can imagine) 50 percent or more of humans in our country were unemployed?
Employment is an important part of our lives. It is the mechanism by which we earn the access to goods and services in order to live. And our careers are important in making us feel useful. If wee didn’t have jobs, society would have […]

The United States government and media outlets regularly tell us about the strength of the economy. But what’s really driving growth, and what are possible concerns and setbacks? Being aware of some of these issues could help growers and their supply chains make informed decisions to stay ahead. Greenhouse Management and Produce Grower recently spoke with Dan North, chief economist for North America at insurance company Euler Hermes , about the U.S. economy. He told us some facts, as well as some […]

Digital transformation leads to continuous adaptability
1486452216_DcfNbn_ed-tech.jpg As 2018 comes to a close, it is a good time to contemplate developments in the global learning landscape. In recent years, innovations in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and the Internet of Things have been major drivers in transforming business, work and everyday life. While these transformative technologies revolutionized the job market, the skill set demanded by employers has also experienced a major transformation.
Organizations across every industry are now hungry for candidates who possess a varied skillset replete with the latest digital skills and an enthusiasm for continuously upskilling during the course […]
To be successful in the age of automation, blue-collar workers need upskilling and training to survive in the market hastily opting for robots over humans With artificial intelligence (AI) and automation displacing several human jobs, many blue-collar workers will require special skills to survive in the future. Unlike white collar workers, blue collar workers spend significant amount of time in physical activities. Whereas, the white-collar worker typically performs work in an office environment and may involve sitting at a computer or desk. To be successful at their jobs in the age of automation, blue-collar workers may also need upskilling […]
Industrial Automation Technologies that automate labour tasks do not necessarily increase unemployment. Despite widespread concerns that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will displace workers en masse , there are periods of history where productivity-enhancing technologies have actually increased employment in the affected industries. This runs counter to the simplistic notion that ‘automation causes job losses’ in the industries experiencing automation.
So, why does automation lead to employment growth in some industries at particular times, while leading to job losses at other times and in other industries?
James Bessen , an Economist from Boston University, argues that it has to do with how […]
Amid rapid advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, there’s mounting anxiety about what the rise of AI and automation will mean for millions of workers. As machines display ever-more sophisticated cognitive capabilities, generate new efficiencies and yield billions of dollars in cost savings, are we on the cusp of an AI-triggered jobs wipeout?
Given the AI-related fears voiced by eminent figures — from Stephen Hawking to Elon Musk — it’s not an unreasonable question. Moreover, the public’s relative unfamiliarity with the “black box” of what makes artificial intelligence tick breeds popular fear about the long-term consequences of the […]
This article first appeared in Forum, The Edge Malaysia Weekly, on October 15, 2018 – October 21, 2018.
I want to start by offering a vision for Malaysia’s future: Society’s income distribution will transition from its current triangle shape, which is large at the bottom, into a more equitable diamond structure, anchored in the centre by a strong and stable middle class.
Each of us in the New Malaysia will have to do some hard thinking about how to translate this vision into reality.We must be clear that Pakatan Harapan did not win the last election by fanning racial, religious or […]
