Robots will dominate workplaces by 2025 [Copy link] 中文

Robots will handle 52 percent of current work tasks by 2025, almost twice as many as now, a World Economic Forum study said yesterday.

The sharp increase could also see a net gain in “new roles” for humans, who will have to revamp skills to keep pace with the “seismic shift” in how we work with machines and computer programs, the forum estimated.

“By 2025 more than half of all current workplace tasks will be performed by machines as opposed to 29 percent today,” the Swiss non-profit organization said.

Simultaneously, rapid changes in machines and algorithms, or computer processes that are designed to solve problems, “could create 133 million new roles in place of 75 million that will be displaced between now and 2022,” the group forecast.

Based near Geneva, the WEF is known for the annual pow-wow of wealthy individuals, politicians and business leaders that it organizes in Davos, Switzerland. Its report, The Future of Jobs 2018, foresees robots swiftly replacing humans in the accounting, client management, industrial, postal and secretarial sectors.

Jobs that require “human skills” such as sales, marketing and customer service should see demand increase meanwhile, along with e-commerce and social media.

A major challenge will be to retrain workers, who will themselves be pressed to update skills especially in the areas of “creativity, critical thinking and persuasion,” the study found.

It surveyed personnel directors and senior executives from a broad range of companies that account for 70 percent of global output. Between now and 2022, they believe the aviation, travel and tourism sectors will have to retrain workers, and identified an overall trend toward learning and adaptation.

Governments were advised meanwhile to prepare safety nets for workers and communities threatened by what the WEF concluded would be “a significant shift” in the quality and permanency of the new jobs.

Most machines are not robots. So 29 percent of work is already being done by machines is it? It doesn't seem to be affecting things much at all does it. Look at unemployment numbers in west - they are low as hell. And another 20% of work being done by machines will create a seismic shift will it? Bullcrap.

The sooner we get programs to replace general practitioners and lawyers the better though in my opinion. Many educated workers could be replaced by programs because most educated workers don't use their arms or legs really and a program could give responses that are just as good as theirs if not better.

What is a robot anyway? If it is defined by any man-made device that can do preprogammed tasks, then every computer and phone is already a robot. How much human communication that previously would have taken place face-to-face, already takes place throgh instant messaging, emails, or phone conversations? I think that we are already way past the 50%.

There you have economists speaking, and not engineers.

Harder

Life gets harder with each new technological advance. At airports now there are no check in clerks. You have to weigh your own bags. No provision for the elderly and the disabled. Similarly with immigration. Everything is so impersonal. We are perceptibly being forced into a mechanical dystopia.
