The art of metal fabrication is a collaboration between skills and intellect, requiring it to be adequately understood.

However, it is unfortunate that metal fabrication is perhaps one of the most underrated industries. Most people are unaware of the updates and latest trends in the arena of metal fabrication industries despite various related sectors being affected and impacted by them. This blog reveals five […]

What Can Past Technological Revolutions Tell Us About Today? getty While the furor around robots taking our jobs has largely died down in recent years (not least due to the lack of any real evidence that it’s happening), it remains inevitable that the introduction of new technologies will cause disruption in the labor market.

"Throughout history the introduction of new technologies has had an inevitable impact on the labour market, whether through displacing jobs, creating new ones, or significantly altering those that already exist," Alexander Dick, Executive Chairman of cloud technology firm VeUP says. "Technologies like AI and robotics are […]

Inequality in decline? Tech jobs fade, waitstaff jobs boom.

Inequality in decline? Tech jobs fade, waitstaff jobs boom.

On one side of Chauncy Street in downtown Boston last week, laid-off tech workers came to the headquarters of internet provider Starry to drop off their company equipment and say goodbye. “It’s sad,” says the security guard downstairs. “I tell them I’m sorry.”

On the other side of Chauncy Street, the Lotus Test Kitchen is hopping. You can smell the spices even before opening the door. Inside, seven food-prep workers make rice bowls for delivery services that will bring lunch to customers all around Greater Boston. The newest employee, who just started that morning, tentatively places toppings on the rice […]

These figures include the latest announcements from Google parent company Alphabet to slash 12,000 jobs and Microsoft’s recent 10,000-person reduction.

Robots versus jobs: Humans will still come out on top

Robots versus jobs: Humans will still come out on top

Employment impact induced by greater use of machines and robotics has existed for centuries, so this is not new. What is new is the fact that emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) are constantly evolving, creating opportunities and transforming how people work across industries.

AI is not a new concept; it has been around for decades. In the mid-1950s, John McCarthy, an American computer scientist and cognitive scientist, coined the term ‘artificial intelligence’ and defined it as “the science and engineering of making intelligent machines”.

AI research then began. McCarthy − along with Alan Turing, Herbert A Simon, Allen Newell and […]

A social carnage: automation explodes inequalities

A social carnage: automation explodes inequalities

Automation technologies have played a leading role in rising income inequality, study finds.

Automated checkouts, call center systems, innovations on assembly lines, automation technologies are now being deployed on a large scale in many sectors. A new study by researchers from MIT and Boston University finds that the latter have played a major role in the explosion of income inequality in the United States in recent decades. Is automation responsible for inequalities?

The authors claim that these innovations only generate a fairly low or even zero gain in productivity. However, these machines are generally excellent for the results of the […]

Monday Morning Moan – AI: time to wear a black tie for the death of white-collar jobs?

Monday Morning Moan - AI: time to wear a black tie for the death of white-collar jobs?

On 27 January, the SONO Music Group, a record label that talks about nurturing acts so they can flourish as a “collaborative family”, tweeted that it was using ChatGPT to help its artists write, pitch, present themselves, and come up with ideas. This begged the question, if it cared so much about creative people, then why not employ some to do those jobs, rather than an AI?

“That’s the first option over all”, SONO replied when I asked them. Fair enough. (But please note, creatives are now optional.) However, for many companies the answer to that question is simple: talented […]

Are artists, writers, musicians threatened by artificial intelligence?

Are artists, writers, musicians threatened by artificial intelligence?

The creative AI revolution has sparked fascination and fear in equal measure. Could AI be exploited to cut costs, to demand more work in less time, to make sectors such as design even more precarious or to automate the easiest tasks? In this image, a teamLab exhibition in Beijing, China in 2017.

At a concert organised by the University of Oregon, artificial intelligence named EMI managed to deceive its audience by passing off its musical compositions as pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach himself. In New York, a computer programme wrote a novel from start to finish inspired by Jack Kerouac’s […]

Effect of Automation Technology on Employment Landscape

Since the 1990s, computers have been one of the contemporary technical tools that have made office work easier. The advancement of computers has been quite quick, and there are now numerous laptops available from different manufacturers and with different specifications. Your smartphone is now starting to be compromised by even computers.

We may also have seen that many smartphones on the market nowadays are just telephones with specifications that are comparable to or even superior to those of laptops or other computers in general. This can be observed in the numerous gaming genres that demand top-tier device support in order […]
