WILL MACHINES TAKE OUR JOBS?

3d robots by franz steiner
Experts predict robots will take over 30% of our jobs by 2025 — and white-collar jobs aren't immune.
Machines were built originally to help humanity not replace humanity...but as it seem even robotic movies are showing us how machines attempt to replace us and we are consciously or unconsciously coming to terms with that idea as the days come by.


Will this era of machines put a lot of people's job at stake???


Machines have been taking jobs from humans and even animals too have taken jobs from humans (Cart pulled by horses) for many years.
Robots and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies have continued the trend till date. Even in the past, when technological shifts occurred, the invented machines made many jobs obsolete, but they also created new ones.
The ability to automate work and use artificial intelligence in carrying out daily task is ever growing and the nature of change it brings to the workforce is also increasing. With the evolution of these technologies on the rise and some jobs standing a chance to disappear because of them, the future of jobs in general isn’t as gloomy as many may believe.  Amidst growing fear that we’ll be replaced by robots in the future, we can say rather than stealing our jobs, inclusion of robots in our work place will simply create new ones and transform existing roles

Job Creation
 In reality automation, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics will bring in new jobs and even create some entirely new job categories. If we look around even at present with the evolution of technology there are so many kinds of jobs that didn’t exist a few years ago.



For instance, The ATMs and PCs; It can be said that they are both replacing bank tellers and secretaries respectively but the fact remains that these machines don’t appear from nowhere at no cost. Humans must build these machines, program and repair them. Their effect is not simply the removal of the jobs; we have to add that other jobs can be created from them too.



Job Transformation
There are certain Kinds of Jobs which machines cannot replace humans but they can transform and bring in certain level of improvements.

1.     Creative arts
Digital Art tools like Photoshop and Corel draw have been useful for graphic artists. Camera advancements have made digital photography more convenient than ever before.
And music production has also improved with the help of digital software’s such as FL Studio. Even so, creative endeavours will never be replaced computers. Art is an expression of human creativity, imagination, and improvisation; something that computers will never have.


2.      Education
    Technological advancements may change the education landscape, but will never eradicate the need for human teachers. Online course sites are increasing in popularity, but the fact remains that the content of online courses doesn’t just materialize out of thin air. Someone needs to create it



3.     Healthcare & Medicine
In medicine some area can be reasonably automated without much constraints such as technical expertise and data analysis. However there are elements of healthcare machines aren’t just capable to handle: bedside manners, making tough decisions from incomplete patient data, dealing with human psychology etc. humans always have a place in healthcare


4.     Professional Sports
Sports are the perfect expression of our tendency to play as human beings. Sports are compelling because of the human nature that goes with it. We aren’t so drawn to a sport itself as we are to the players of a particular sport. The history, the rivalries and athleticism, the stakes. That’s what we want to watch and machines can never replace that excitement

Economic Consideration
Technology cannot free itself totally from the principles of economics. Citing an example with the advent of air planes, it was a new technology but did not replace other forms of transportation. There are types of travels for which planes were best for and others for which they weren’t. Overtime the economic factors systematically sorted out the price and market place for each medium. In the aspect of pricing, it can be economical for one to travel by road to a destination which is accessible via land and air. Similarly the fact that the computer can do something better than the human being doesn’t mean the computer will replace the human being. The market will determine if it’s economical to do so, considering the cost and perceived benefit.
        

WE ARE STILL IN CHARGE!!
Ever wondered why the CAPTCHA was invented? A CAPTCHA has to effectively test if you are human or machine. Computer scientists figured out that one of the easiest ways to do that is to use images of language. In order to deceive spammers, the images of language take randomly generated text and manipulate the image, so that a human can barely read it, but a computer trying to take a picture of it cannot.

Even though we read words on the internet, the internet and computers are not made of words. In fact, computers often have a hard time understanding languages because they do not conform to the hard and fast rules that computer programs demand. That’s why coding languages have to be invented: human languages are too irregular. This is also one of the reasons it is so hard to create an intelligent robot. So, CAPTCHAs take advantage of the uniquely human ability to see letters that have been stretched or manipulated and still be able to decipher which letters they are.

There are elements of human behaviour that computers cannot replicate; intuition, creativity, innovation, compassion, imagination etc. As long as a job requires these human traits and tendencies it will always be safe.
