How can Humans Compete with Robots?

When we think of robots , the first thing that comes to our mind is – how will these robots replace us in our job roles?

When we think of robots, the first thing that comes to our mind is – how will these robots replace us in our job roles? Whatever the answer, the second question is almost certainly: How can I ensure that my job is not threatened? A team of researchers from EPFL and economists from the University of Lausanne has released research in Science Robotics that provides answers to both issues. They created a […]

Thermo Fisher, Charles River join robotics outfit Multiply Labs’ quest to automate cell therapy production

Thermo Fisher, Charles River join robotics outfit Multiply Labs' quest to automate cell therapy production

On a quest to automate manual portions of the cell therapy production process, Multiply Labs is arming itself with two more pieces of industry-leading tech. The new kit comes on board a little less than a year after the robotics outfit unveiled a consortium aimed at building a robotic manufacturing system to make cell therapies on an industrial scale.

After recruiting an initial team that included Cytiva and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), Multiply Labs is adding major players in Thermo Fisher Scientific and Charles River Laboratories, the companies said Thursday.

With Multiply in charge of robotics and UCSF […]

Progressive Education, Controversy Nothing New to Richland Schools (OpEd)

Progressive Education, Controversy Nothing New to Richland Schools (OpEd)

The recall effort being mounted against 3 Richland School Board members is not that unusual if you consider some of the more ‘interesting’ events in RSD history. RSD has seen more liberal, progressive education than the rest of Tri-Cities

I am a Tri-City native, my parents moved here from Bellevue, WA in August 1966 when I was 3 years old. I went through the RSD and while I did get a solid education, the time was not without controversy. Progressive Education SPI elected.

In 1972 my dad worked as a local campaign officer for OSPI Candidate James S. Moore, […]

Workplace digitalization has increased support for the Conservatives and for the incumbent government

Workplace digitalization has increased support for the Conservatives and for the incumbent government

While there are few signs that workplace digitalisation leads to mass unemployment, Nikolas Schöll finds that it contributes to growing income inequalities between low and highly educated workers. These diverging economic trajectories are also mirrored in party support: winners of digitalization become more supportive of the incumbent government and the Conservative Party, whereas losers of digitalization become tentatively more supportive of UKIP.

The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed workplace digitalization as few events did before: almost half the UK workforce reports to have worked from home during lockdowns, twice the number of pre-pandemic times. This has boosted the adoption of […]

How to compete with robots

How to compete with robots

by EPFL When it comes to the future of intelligent robots, the first question people ask is often: how many jobs will they make disappear? Whatever the answer, the second question is likely to be: how can I make sure that my job is not among them?

In a study just published in Science Robotics , a team of roboticists from EPFL and economists from the University of Lausanne offers answers to both questions. By combining the scientific and technical literature on robotic abilities with employment and wage statistics, they have developed a method to calculate which of the currently […]

Some Neighboring States Offer Idaho Lessons in Bearing Drought

Some Neighboring States Offer Idaho Lessons in Bearing Drought

Some Neighboring States Offer Idaho Lessons in Bearing Drought A young fellow from Wendell told me a few weeks ago human adaptability will conquer climate change. He’s spot on. Humans have always adapted to conditions. If sea levels rise, build a higher seawall. It’s cheaper than a lot of other solutions being proposed by the greenies. A Generational Dry Period

We’re suffering through a terrible drought in Idaho almost a quarter-century in length and we simply don’t know if and when it’s going to end. Our conditions may not be as dire as some of our other western neighbors […]

Opinion: Change Boston’s Manufacturing Strategy Or We’ll Miss Out On High-Paying Jobs

Opinion: Change Boston’s Manufacturing Strategy Or We’ll Miss Out On High-Paying Jobs

Image viaConnecticut Center for Advanced Manufacturing Many in government wrongly believe Boston can’t become a manufacturing hub

US manufacturing is not dead.

Intel announced plans to invest up to $100 billion in a chip plant in Ohio and $20 billion for a plant in Arizona. However, unlike other cities, Boston does not have an urban manufacturing strategy and continues to forgo these economic, workforce, and entrepreneurship opportunities.Our policy should be invent it here, build it here — we manufacture in Massachusetts what we invent in Massachusetts. Thus, we link the growing demand for white-collar innovation jobs with blue-collar manufacturing […]
