Automate, or Die!

Automate, or Die! | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

If your job is process oriented, for example, calculating make-goods for improperly filled orders, your whole department will be automated soon. Don’t let the pink slip surprise you. If you analyze numbers in Excel, craft a narrative about them, and move them around spreadsheets, your employable days are numbered. Any white-collar job you can learn to do in a few days is threatened – even if it takes a lifetime to master. (Poker takes minutes to learn and a lifetime to master. So professional pokers players are at risk.

What will future jobs look like? (Andrew McAfee)

Economist Andrew McAfee suggests that, yes, probably, droids will take our jobs -- or at least the kinds of jobs we know now. In this far-seeing talk, he thinks through what future jobs might look like, and how to educate coming generations to hold them.

Free money: The answer to a post-automation world?

Free money: The answer to a post-automation world? | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it
Several forces are coming together at once. Capitalism appears to be broken. A stunning number of people hate their jobs – and view them as a pointless waste of their lives for money – and yet, terrifyingly, this grindingly tedious necessity may be about to be stolen from us by machines. This has left many people arguing that Universal Basic Income (UBI) – which gives people free money just for living – could be the answer.

There are a number of facets to this whole problem. Firstly, there is little doubt most people simply do not like their jobs. Gallup research from a few years back shows that feedback from adults from 142 different countries reveals on average 63% are not engaged and 24% are actively disengaged by their work. A breakdown of results by region can be found below.

Michael Saylor: Free education is the solution to automation joblessness

Michael Saylor: Free education is the solution to automation joblessness | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it
On the subject of MicroStrategy’s niche and future growth plans, he rattles off answers with composite ease, riffing on the competition and what differentiates his company from others in the marketplace (more on this shortly). But it is on the subject of a post-automation world – a pertinent topic by anyone’s reckoning – that he gets really animated. Saylor believes the answer isn’t Universal Basic Income or any of the other solutions proposed, but no cost learning for the unemployed.

“The worst case is you give people money to do nothing [UBI],” he explains. The other option is you give people money to do something that is “not needed” – in other words the kind of job creation schemes that governments often run in times of crisis. However, he believes if you spend the money on free education instead it could “help cure cancer” or any of the other massive social problems that won’t be solved by people with “undergraduate degrees alone”.

There are seven to eight billion people on the planet and only ten million PHDs, he says. “The world needs a billion PHDs.” Yet in the US these costs around $1M and that kind of money is simply not available for most people.

Así enumera Materia los oficios más amenazados por la robótica (automatización, en la jerga). También podemos citar los casos recientes de Metrobot, el robot que conduce el metro, y del robot cirujano, que ha empezado a preocupar hasta a sus propios creadores, que creen que el grado de autonomía de estos médicos de silicio debería regularse, jerarquizarse y pensarse a fondo, con la ayuda de los filósofos éticos y de los filósofos del derecho.

The end of Corporate Culture as we know it

The end of Corporate Culture as we know it | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

We are evolving toward the age of networked enterprise, in which the traditional hierarchies of the corporation will be supplanted by self-organizing systems collaborating on digital platforms.

It will be the era of entrepreneurship, distributed leadership, and the continual reorganization of people and resources. It will be the time of disintermediation both within and between organizations. Layers of management will fall; the need for centralized systems and trusted go-betweens will dissipate, if not disappear.

5 robots that are about to revolutionize the workforce — and put jobs at risk

5 robots that are about to revolutionize the workforce — and put jobs at risk | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

According to a study from Oxford University and the Oxford Martin School, 47% of jobs in the United States are "at risk" of becoming "automated in the next 20 years." PwC has similar findings, estimating that 38% of U.S. jobs are at risk of being replaced by robots and artificial intelligence in the next 15 years. And while two-thirds of Americans believe robots will take over most of the workforce in the next 50 years, they're also in denial: 80% say their job will "probably" or "definitely" be around in five decades. 


 Here are five robots that are coming to take some jobs from unsuspecting humans:

Society must prepare for disruptive new techologies, warns Alibaba chairman | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it
Ma was at times brutal in his criticism of companies that won’t adapt. At one point, he said cloud computing and artificial intelligence are essential for business — and if leaders don’t get that, they should find young people in their companies to explain it to them. Another time, he called for traditional industries to stop complaining about the internet’s effects on the economy. He said Alibaba critics ignore that Taobao, its main online marketplace, has created millions of jobs.

The future of work is chaos (Claire Burge)

If we want to unleash human potential, we need to accelerate it by creatively harnessing chaos. A practical example of this is a playground: kids are playful and chaotic because they have defined structures and beautiful systems driving their development. Work should be no different. Let's start inventing new playgrounds to accelerate humans in the world.

Feds spend $999,946 building Robot Nurses

Feds spend $999,946 building Robot Nurses | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it
The National Science Foundation is spending nearly $1 million to create robotic nurses that can lift patients and deliver medicine with the hope to increase the "social acceptance" of robots.

The University of Texas is conducting the study, which will build two versions of robots, promising that the robots would keep the human nurses "in the decision loop."

"There are nearly 3 million registered nurses employed in the United States, making them the largest pool of healthcare providers in the country," a grant for the project states. "Technology that affects the performance of this large labor pool cannot fail to have impact. Due to advancements in robotics and computer technology, access to intelligent communication, sensing, and computing hardware is on the cusp of becoming common–not only for healthcare professionals, but also for patients themselves."

The so-called 'gig' economy - think Uber, Lyft and AirBnB - is changing the face of business. And finding its way into court.

The American Law Journal presents "The 'Virtual' Employee in a 'Gig' Economy: Spillover into the Courts." Christopher Naughton welcomes plaintiff's attorney Michael Salmanson of Salmanson Goldshaw PC and corporate defense counsel Anthony Haller of Blank Rome. Joining the discussion is author Jonathan Younger of Agile Talent Collaborative, employment attorney Robin Bond of Transition Strategies and from Washington, D.C., James Quiggle, the director of communications at Coalition Against Insurance Fraud.

The shocking reality of a future of shrinking jobs

The shocking reality of a future of shrinking jobs | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it
The jobs reports would have us believe our rebound from the recession is almost complete. The reality is very different. The Economist has some fancy words for it: "Job polarization," in which middle-skill jobs decline while low-skill and high-skill jobs increase and the workforce "bifurcates" into two extremes of income.

Optimists like to bring up the Industrial Revolution, and the return to better jobs afterwards. But it took 60 years. And job polarization makes the present day very different from two centuries ago, when only the bodies of workers, and not their brains, were superseded by machines.

Workers with no college degree fall further behind than ever

Workers with no college degree fall further behind than ever | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it
Americans with no more than a high school diploma have fallen so far behind college graduates in their economic lives that the earnings gap between college grads and everyone else has reached its widest point on record.

The growing disparity has become a source of frustration for millions of Americans worried that they-- and their children -- are losing economic ground.

College graduates, on average, earned 56 percent more than high school grads in 2015, according to data compiled by the Economic Policy Institute. That was up from 51 percent in 1999 and is the largest such gap in EPI’s figures dating to 1973.
Edumorfosis's insight:

They should investigate too the Employability Rate of college students to perceive if they are working on what they studied.

Track how technology is transforming work

Track how technology is transforming work | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Advances in technology pose huge challenges for jobs. Productivity levels have never been higher in the United States, for example, but income for the bottom 50% of earners has stagnated since 1999 (see 'Job shifts'). Most of the monetary gains have gone to a small group at the very top. Technology is not the only reason, but it is probably the most important one.

A report published on 13 April by the US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine details the impacts of information technology on the workforce1. We co-chaired the report committee and learnt a great deal in the process — including that, over the next 10–20 years, technology will affect almost every occupation. For example, self-driving vehicles could slash the need for drivers of taxis and long-haul trucks, and online education could enrich options for retraining of displaced workers.

Nationalism vs Globalism: The new political divide | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

How do we make sense of today's political divisions? In a wide-ranging conversation full of insight, historian Yuval Harari places our current turmoil in a broader context, against the ongoing disruption of our technology, climate, media — even our notion of what humanity is for. This is the first of a series of TED Dialogues, seeking a thoughtful response to escalating political divisiveness. Make time (just over an hour) for this fascinating discussion between Harari and TED curator Chris Anderson.

Edumorfosis's insight:

The science, technology, economy, farming, environment, media, industry, politics, learning, work, society and culture are changing... Our traditional systems must change to!

The next Big Blue-Collar job is coding

The next Big Blue-Collar job is coding | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

But this Silicon Valley stereotype isn’t even geographically accurate. The Valley employs only 8 percent of the nation’s coders. All the other millions? They’re more like Devon, a programmer I met who helps maintain a ­security-software service in Portland, Oregon. He isn’t going to get fabulously rich, but his job is stable and rewarding: It’s 40 hours a week, well paid, and intellectually challenging. “My dad was a blue-­collar guy,” he tells me—and in many ways, Devon is too.

Politicians routinely bemoan the loss of good blue-collar jobs. Work like that is correctly seen as a pillar of civil middle-class society. And it may yet be again. What if the next big blue-collar job category is already here—and it’s programming? What if we regarded code not as a high-stakes, sexy affair, but the equivalent of skilled work at a Chrysler plant?

No one is prepared to stop the robot onslaught. So what will we do when it arrives? | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it
You’ve heard about the robots—how they are on their way to vaporize the jobs of tens of thousands of bankers and brokers on Wall Street, in the City of London and in trading hubs around the world. How they are bent on inflicting similar mayhem in law and accounting firms, and in computer-programming pools.

How, if you wear a white collar, male or female, watch your back.

And how all that’s just for starters. Advances in supercomputers and the understanding of neural networks are combining to create a revolution in robotics, and companies eager for more profitability and cheaper production are ruthlessly grabbing the new technology to automate rote jobs.

It’s time to regulate the Gig Economy

It’s time to regulate the Gig Economy | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it
Over a century ago, labour laws began to be instituted in diverse countries throughout the world. These laws were intended to provide protection to workers in what was recognised as an unequal relationship of exchange, but it also gave authority to managers to organise and direct their employees’ work. While the world of work has changed since these initial labour regulations were instituted, the fundamental reasons for the existence of labour protections – to ensure safe and healthy workplaces, to give workers a voice, and to provide minimum protections with respect to working time and earnings – remain valid.
