The autonomous robotics future is around the corner

A world where robots can learn, act, and help humans autonomously has been years in the making.

Autonomous Robotics – compressed banner image Intuitive Surgical’s robots helped perform 1.6 million surgeries last year; often procedures that would have been impossible for a surgeon alone to perform safely. That’s a staggering number until you consider the fact that it accounts for less than 0.5% of surgeries performed globally. Robotics is an exciting field that holds the potential to unlock substantial value for society, but it’s still a field that is arguably in its infancy.

Today, vertical markets like manufacturing, logistics, and […]

Between labour shortages and the desire to work part-time: ways out of the Swiss labour market crisis

Despite the economic downturn, Switzerland continues to enjoy a low unemployment rate and is even suffering from an increasing shortage of labour in many areas. The activation of the domestic labour potential could be a solution. However, as our employee survey reveals, confidence in the employability of older workers is declining. Respondents also show a clear preference for part-time work. This article discusses what options are available to combat the labour shortage.

After two years characterised by significant price increases and declining economic strength, the outlook for 2024 appears bleak. A silver lining, however, is that we have not yet […]

Politics—Not Tech—Can Save Black Jobs from AI

Politics—Not Tech—Can Save Black Jobs from AI

“Automation replaces men. This is of course nothing new,” explains James Boggs in his 1963 treatise The American Revolution: Pages from a Negro Worker’s Notebook. “What is new is that now, unlike most earlier periods, the displaced men have nowhere to go.” 1 This was particularly true for the many Black workers who, like Boggs, had migrated from the Jim Crow South to the northern cities in search of gainful employment during the postwar period. Unable to find meaningful work and with return to the South not an option, they remained trapped in urban ghettos with little hope for […]

It says knights of the Royal’s round table, where lies are told and repeated. But not just anyone can be a knight. As Petzel explains, […]

The Impact of Technology on Employment

Technology has significantly transformed the job market and the nature of work. While it has brought about increased efficiency and productivity, it has also raised concerns about job displacement and the changing skill requirements. One of the main impacts of technology on employment is automation. Advances in robotics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning have led to the automation of various tasks and processes. Jobs that involve routine, repetitive tasks are particularly vulnerable to automation. This has led to concerns about job displacement, as machines can often perform these tasks more efficiently and at a lower cost than humans. However, […]
