J-PAL North America’s newest initiative explores the work of the future

“The future of work will be determined by who yields power and for what purposes. We are in a moment of great transition — we have an opportunity to imagine what a new social contract can be,” said Sarita Gupta, executive director of Jobs with Justice and co-director of Caring Across Generations as she kicked off last Friday’s launch of J-PAL North America’s Work of the Future Initiative .

Gupta opened the confercence with a powerful call to action for participants to shift the narrative around “the future of work.” The newest initiative from J-PAL North America, a research center […]

Market Progress : Agricultural Robots Market Shares – Industry Trends, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2019 to 2023

ResearchMoz presents professional and in-depth study of “Agricultural Robots Market Shares – Industry Trends, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2017 to 2023”.

The escalating global population is increasing demand for food products. To cope up with this demand, efficient farming processes are being explored. This is leading growth to the global agriculture robots market. In developing countries, the rising industrialization has led to the migration of labor from farming to jobs. This has resulted to the increase in the average labor cost, which is motivating consumers to employ automation for farming activities. On the other hand, in developed countries such as […]

How automation is creating jobs

How automation is creating jobs

How automation is creating jobs. Robot workers replacing human jobs – the debate of the decade. In reality, the opposite looks true. Recent research carried out by ManpowerGroup shows that more employers than ever – 87 per cent – plan to increase or maintain headcount as a result of automation for the third consecutive year.

Rather than reducing employment opportunities, organisations are investing in digital, shifting tasks to robots and creating jobs. At the same time, companies are scaling their up-skilling programs so that their human workforce can perform new and complementary roles to those done by machines. The Skills […]

Industry and technology leaders have realized it is high time that businesses and universities prepare workers for the future in an innovative way.

FAREWELL TO STRENUOUS, REPETITIVE WORKThe Industry 4.0 Summit and Expo, the UK’s largest event for the fourth industrial revolution, running from Wednesday to Thursday in Manchester, attracted start-ups, manufacturing companies, universities and other institutions that are involved in development and application of […]

Report: Toledo area most vulnerable to automation in employment

Report: Toledo area most vulnerable to automation in employment

It seems safe to predict tractor-trailers will continue hauling the country’s goods across interstate highways in the near future.

Trucking veteran Ed Nagle, however, goes a step further. Even as autonomous vehicle technology advances and shapes the future economy, he expects a human will occupy big-rig driver’s seats for at least a decade to come.

“I tell people, when you’re ready to send your family up in an airplane without a pilot, then people will start to look at the possibility of an 80,000-pound vehicle going down the road unmanned,” said Mr. Nagle, president and CEO at Nagle Companies of Walbridge. […]

We live in a time where robots not only manufacture materials we use every day, but operate them as well. Even fields that were thought to be immune, such as law or software engineering, are beginning to see the implementation of AI for some of the tasks involved.

To many, this is seen as nothing less than a crisis. A study conducted by Udemy in 2017 showed that the number one stress trigger for 43 percent of workers is being replaced by artificial intelligence.For those in that 43 percent, you may be relieved to know that your stress […]

A Declining Population is a Supreme Asset in The Age of AI, Robotics And Automation

A slew of articles from western outlets as well as the Hong Kong based anti-Beijing South China Morning Post have suggested that as China’s population is set to contract, this will have a negative impact on the economy. Ironically, this comes at a time when US Presidential candidate Andrew Yang is proposing a new economic model to deal with the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and increased automation that will render many human jobs redundant sooner rather than later. As China is already a global leader in AI, China’s history of managing once uncontrollable population growth has led the […]
