Tech Tip: What Your Business Can Gain from AI

While many fear Artificial Intelligence, its applications can let your employees do less rote work in the office. Photo by Tara Winstead. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a major topic lately, whether it’s the subject of new chatbots capable of generating text or making art that can compete with even the most skilled of artists or about the prospect of what surprises future chatbots might bring. AI is commonly targeted as a culprit in stealing jobs, as well, and with these applications becoming more sophisticated over time, it’s no wonder people aren’t sure how to react to these developments.

However, AI […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Decoding the future: The college providing the skillset for next-gen jobs

Forty percent of the jobs of the future do not yet exist. It’s a prediction you will often hear repeated at career forums and tech talks. Is there any truth to the figure, however? If so, what exactly are those jobs yet to be invented? Get connected: The future of work will require both technical and interpersonal skills. AI-generated image: DALL-E2/The Local Europe The Local spoke to two students from the higher education programme Forward College about what the future of jobs will look like, and how their unique education is helping them prepare for it.

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 […]

No technology in modern memory has caused mass job loss among highly educated workers. Will generative AI be an exception?

In the next five years, it is likely that AI will begin to reduce employment for college-educated workers. As the technology continues to advance, it will be able to perform tasks that were previously thought to require a high level of education and skill. This could lead to a displacement of workers in certain industries, as companies look to cut costs by automating processes. While it is difficult to predict the exact extent of this trend, it is clear […]

Technology Needs More Humanity

There’s the paranoid fear that a spooky cabal of technocrats at the Federal Reserve — unaccountable, incomprehensible — might one day make ordinary money go poof! There’s the success of the young bros who minted a fortune convincing other young bros to embrace the thing — luring a generation with dim job prospects anyway to take a shot at getting rich from their bedroom.

Can that be all, though? You might expect some urgency to find a purpose for a technology that consumes more power than Australia, yet hasn’t been able to develop a real-world function other than paying for […]
