5 Trends & Technologies Improving Metal Fabrication

5 Trends & Technologies Improving Metal Fabrication

Once upon a time, humans used to melt bronze in clay furnaces. Over the years, metal fabrication companies have come a long way and have become exceedingly advanced in the way they get their job done. 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Join the revolution: The 4th Industrial Revolution is changing learning

The 4th Industrial Revolution is the current phase of rapid technological change. It is also known as Industry 4.0, and the advent of robotics, artificial intelligence, and automation has marked it. Klaus Schwab coined the term in 2013 in his book “The Fourth Industrial Revolution.” He defines it as “a new stage of industrialization characterized by a fusion of technologies blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.”

The 4th Industrial Revolution is a time of significant change. It is a time when new technologies and innovations are transforming the world. The role of educators in this revolution […]

Montreal 'smart factory' aims to demonstrate potential of warehouse automation

A robot forklift and package mover are seen at Deloitte Canada’s Smart Factory AI robotic warehouse showroom Tuesday, January 24, 2023 in Montreal. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Ryan Remiorz MONTREAL — As a robotic arm at a Montreal demonstration facility attempts to pick up a small box, it senses that it doesn’t have a good grip, puts the package down, adjusts and tries again.

The robot, at Deloitte Canada’s Smart Factory in Montreal, is not only operating on its own, picking differently sized items off a pallet, it’s also learning from the experience.

Deloitte, a business consulting firm, plans to bring clients to […]
