Walmart Is Deploying Thousands Of Robots To Replace Human Workers -- What This Means For Your Job

Walmart proudly announced a new addition to its stores: lots of robots. The robots will take the place of humans and engage in routine tasks, such as scanning shelf inventory and boxes as they arrive into the stores. Walmart contends that the influx of robots will reduce the number of workers engaged in "repeatable, predictable and manual" tasks.

At first blush, this seems relatively innocuous. However, when you consider the deeper and darker ramifications, things start to look frightening. There have been studies conducted heralding the introduction of robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other technologies. The reports conclude that this […]

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 […]

The Supposedly Looming Spectre of Automation in the Service Industries

Automation is an interesting outlier within the modern canon of political topics of discussion. Views aren’t split down the usual left-right divide; instead, opinions tend to diverge along free market–protectionist lines. Fellow travelers on the same side of the political aisle, like conservatives Ben Shapiro and Tucker Carlson, can be divided on automation. When asked on Shapiro’s Sunday Special whether he would restrict automated trucks to save truckers’ jobs, Carlson said he would, “in a second.” Carlson clearly cares about working-class people and doesn’t want to see their employment under threat.

But it isn’t. At least, not in the customer […]
