Anti-Technology Backlash: What’s Real? What’s Myth?

Anti-Technology Backlash: What’s Real? What’s Myth?

Is the public turning against robots? Are employees who fear for their jobs vandalizing them? Some anti-robot incidents have been reported in recent years: Take hitchBOT, a “hitchhiking robot”: It was fun but it was vandalized in 2015: As you probably know by now, HitchBot—a device made of pool noodles, rubber gloves, a bucket, and the computer power needed to talk, smile, and tweet—was deliberately decapitated and dismembered this week, only 300 miles into its hitchhiking journey across the United States. HitchBot had successfully made similar journeys across the Netherlands, Germany, and Canada, relying on bemused strangers for transportation. […]

Automation: Is it as Bad for Jobs as it Seems?

Automation: Is it as Bad for Jobs as it Seems?

With the power of artificial intelligence (AI) being harnessed by countless companies to automate processes, there has been a lot of talk about the job losses that could occur across industries.

While new technologies will replace manual work (think manufacturing jobs) is the future of work really as bleak as some critics claim?

As AI evolves, some believe that it will steadily and inevitably take over large sectors of the workforce, bringing mass unemployment and social unrest.Some roles are at particularly high risk of automation, particularly ones in data keeping (e.g. record clerks, office assistants), low-level customer interaction (e.g. hotel/travel […]

Electromechanical Actuator Market Projected to Witness a Single-Digit CAGR During 2017 – 2025

Electromechanical Actuator Market Projected to Witness a Single-Digit CAGR During 2017 – 2025

Electromechanical actuators convert the energy created by electricity into linear motion. Electromechanical actuators come under the category of linear actuators. Other types of linear actuators available in the market are mechanical actuators, hydraulic actuators, pneumatic actuators, and piezoelectric actuators. Electromechanical actuators provide a lot of advantages over the traditional pneumatic and hydraulic actuators. This is the reason why electromechanical actuators are widely popular.

Market Overview:

The energy created by liquid, electricity or air is converted into motion by electromechanical actuators. Motion generated because of an electromechanical actuator can be in the form of ejection, clamping or blocking. Electromechanical actuators […]

The culprit could be robots and automation, which are weakening human workers’ bargaining power to ask for higher wages, according to new research. American workers are more productive than ever, but their paychecks haven’t kept pace. Researchers with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco have a culprit: robots.Economists Sylvain Leduc and Zheng Liu theorize that automation is sapping employees’ bargaining power, making it harder for them to demand […]

Is AI an agent of big tech hegemony or multi-disciplinary research and innovation?

Summary: A recent New York Times article focused on fears of a big tech monopoly over AI technology and research. Severe debunkery ensues… A recent New York Times article fretting about the soaring costs of developing and training leading-edge deep learning models and my admittedly provocative Tweet questioning the premise and motives of the article’s sources led to the type of online banter that indicates a nuanced question ill-suited for pithy Twitter responses.

Fears of AI creating a chasm between haves and have-nots are common, however the topic of AI-fueled inequality typically centers on its economic effects, namely that the […]

‘Goliath Is Winning’: The Biggest U.S. Banks Are Set to Automate Away 200,000 Jobs

'Goliath Is Winning': The Biggest U.S. Banks Are Set to Automate Away 200,000 Jobs

Over the next decade, U.S. banks, which are investing $150 billion in technology annually, will use automation to eliminate 200,000 jobs , thus facilitating “the greatest transfer from labor to capital” in the industry’s history. The call is coming from inside the house this time, too—both the projection and the quote come from a recent Wells Fargo report, whose lead author, Mike Mayo, told the Financial Times that he expects the industry to shed 10 percent of all of its jobs.

This, Mayo said, will lay the groundwork for, and I quote, “a golden age of banking efficiency.” The job […]
