Manpower’s CEO just gave us an awesome solution to the ‘robots taking human jobs’ conundrum

Posted by in categories: business, economics, education, employment, finance, robotics/AI

Kudos to Manpower’s CEO Jonas Prising — with the possibility on the horizon of a world wide loss of 5 million jobs; we need to make sure we a structure in place to absorb that hit with needs to include education & retraining and a financial support structure to help those laid off and their immediate family members (namely children). And, the earlier we can train folks; the less costly it will be for governments and countries in the long run.

Over 2,500 of the world’s most powerful people have talked about the risks and opportunities surrounding “The Fourth Industrial Revolution” this week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Bill Gates and Elon Musk Will Save the World from AI?

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, Elon Musk, employment, habitats, robotics/AI, transportation

I must admit; I got a little laughter from reading the beginning of this article. However, there is a potential longer term concern around jobs and an even larger concern around data (including IP) when it comes to AI. So, I truly hope folks are strategically planning, designing, and implementing appropriate safeguards around their AI architecture and systems; especially if we look at hacking, etc.

Bill Gates, Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking have all done their part in warning the world of the true power of artificial intelligence. All three men were actually awarded the 2015 Luddite Award, which is given by the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation.

Because of their honest assessment on the power of new technology, these three men have been called alarmists who spread horror. There were 10 total nominees to the prices, and all three received them after getting more 3,680 votes.

Grounding AI: Artificial Intelligence is Closer — and Less Awesome — than Most Realize

Posted by in categories: employment, quantum physics, robotics/AI

Personally, today’s AI is not at the level we need it. Therefore, this article by Collin Wood does hold some merit of fact. However, this is going to be changing in the next 3 to 4 years. And, believing that AI is not going to be sophisticated or at a level that can out perform people with information is truly a mistake especially when technologies such as Quantum are added to the mix and Quantum AI is matured and evolved over the next 5 years. So, at least we’re good for the year 2016 to early 2018. However, after we progress forward in 2018, I advise folks to have a back up plan for employment.

In fact, many in government and the private sector are already using the next rung in humanity’s digital progression.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is already here

Posted by in categories: business, economics, employment, nanotechnology, quantum physics

Very interesting; the article highlights that there was no mention of job losses in 2020 within the IT field instead the writer highlights a shortage of IT resources to fill the jobs. And, thoroughly appreciate that the writer highlighted that Quantum, Nanobots, etc. are making the 4th Industrial Revolution happen; I couldn’t agree more.

To be sure, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is still in its nascent state. But with the pace of change and disruption to business and society so swift these days, the time to join in is now.

Report from Davos: 5 million jobs to be lost by 2020 because of tech advances

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical, economics, employment, genetics, robotics/AI

In less than 4 yrs. 5 million jobs will be lost is the prediction.

A new report predicts a loss of 5 million jobs in the next five years because of technological advances, but don’t blame it all on the robots.

The other culprits: artificial intelligence, 3-D printers and advances in genetics, biotech and more.

Machine learning’s hand in touch-less, straight-through processing and beyond

Posted by in categories: employment, ethics, robotics/AI

AI can easily replace much of the back office operations and some front office over time. As a result, there will be a need to have a massive social system and displacement program in place as a joint effort with governments and companies to re-school and re-tool workers and financially support the workers and their families until they can be retooled/ retrained to get one of the existing jobs or one of the new careers resulting from AI. There will be a need and social obligation placed back on companies at a scale like we have never seen before. With power and wealth; there truly comes a level of moral responsibility imposed by society.

These Totally Mesmerizing Robots That Sort Batteries Are Just Awesome

Posted by in categories: employment, robotics/AI

Seeing this video; I already identified quickly where the US Government could truly cut it’s budget.

I legitimately have fun watching these robot arms sort out batteries because they are just so damn good at their jobs. A conveyor belt pushes out an endless stream of batteries that desperately need sorting and the robot arms somehow never fall behind. One robot arm grabs the batteries that are scattered all over the place and creates a set of 4 while the other robotic arm snatches those sets of batteries and puts them aside. It’s great because the whole sorting system isn’t totally uniform, the robot arms look like they’re frantically fighting against the clock.

Artificial Intelligence Doctors And Virtual Reality Vacations Are On The Horizon

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, employment, robotics/AI, virtual reality

Robot doctors, virtual reality vacations and smart toothbrushes. These are just a few of the things the world can expect to see in the not-so-distant future, says Stanford and Duke researcher and lecturer Vivek Wadhwa.

Speaking to a crowd of more than 300 people in Palm Beach in December at billionaire Jeff Greene’s “Closing the Gap” conference, which addressed the growing divide between the wealthy and poor and how the rise of machines might kill white-collar jobs, Wadhwa sketched a sci-fi vision for the future that he says will soon be a reality thanks to rapid technological innovation.

“The future is going to be happening much, much faster than anyone ever imagined,” said Wadhwa, explaining that tech growth has been exponential — meaning as technology advances it does so with increasing speed.
