Will You Lose Your Job to Automation?

As work becomes increasingly automated, conversations are swirling about whether machines are taking over. We talk to Google Cloud AI chief scientist Fei-Fei Li, as well as Sharan Burrow of the International Trade Union Confederation, Sinovation Ventures CEO Kai-Fu Lee, historian and best-selling author Prof. Yuval Noah Harari, and Nobel laureate Sir Christopher Pissarides to delve into whether it's time to worry about future job security.

Tech companies have long been valued by investors for their ability to replace employees with technology. Now, alongside software and server farms, they are moving at a breakneck pace on find living, breathing human beings to staff their systems.

They’re doing so because of a high-profile series of failures of automation, which have prompted a wave of intense pressure from investors, the public, and governments.

The Question with AI Isn’t Whether We’ll Lose Our Jobs — It’s How Much We’ll Get Paid

The Question with AI Isn’t Whether We’ll Lose Our Jobs — It’s How Much We’ll Get Paid | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

The relevant question is “Will the jobs where humans have comparative advantage pay well and have good working conditions?” As we know from displacement due to globalization and increasing international trade, there is nothing that guarantees that humans displaced from jobs will be reemployed in new jobs that pay as well as their old jobs, or even pay well enough to maintain middle-class status.

John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

We need to redesign the way we think about work and income to overcome this. An universal basic income is one way, but there may be other ways.

How Automation Will Change Work, Purpose, and Meaning

How Automation Will Change Work, Purpose, and Meaning | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

The vast majority of humans throughout history worked because they had to. Many found comfort, value, and meaning in their efforts, but some defined work as a necessity to be avoided if possible. For centuries, elites in societies from Europe to Asia aspired to absolution from gainful employment. Aristotle defined a “man in freedom” as the pinnacle of human existence, an individual freed of any concern for the necessities of life and with nearly complete personal agency. (Tellingly, he did not define wealthy merchants as free to the extent that their minds were pre-occupied with acquisition.)

 

The promise of AI and automation raises new questions about the role of work in our lives. Most of us will remain focused for decades to come on activities of physical or financial production, but as technology provides services and goods at ever-lower cost, human beings will be compelled to discover new roles — roles that aren’t necessarily tied to how we conceive of work today.

The final line is a key premise for us all to act on now "When our machines release us from ever more tasks, to what will we turn our attentions? This will be the defining question of our coming century."
CCM Consultancy's curator insight, January 18, 12:46 AM

Most ancient Greek philosophers prioritized contemplation over action as the pinnacle of human endeavor. Arendt did battle with this notion, arguing on behalf of action. Contemporary culture appears to agree. Ultimately, though, action and contemplation function best when allied. We have the opportunity — perhaps the responsibility — to turn our curiosity and social natures to action and contemplation.

5 Ways To Prevent A Robot From Taking Your Job

5 Ways To Prevent A Robot From Taking Your Job | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

Economists agree that throughout history, jobs are made obsolete through technological and economic advancements. However, history tells us these jobs will be replaced by new jobs as the economy shifts and needs change. For example, blacksmiths were rendered obsolete when automobile manufacturing began, but new jobs in car manufacturing and highway construction were created. History confirms that displaced workers always find other jobs and the effects of the growing digital economy won't change this trend.

Ernest Tay Yu Zhe's comment, February 1, 11:05 AM
The article strikes close to home, and interestingly, an article from halfway around the globe is sharing the same suggestions that the Singaporean government is advising us to take, elucidating just how relevant the issue on technology replacing the workforce is around the world. Our life in a couple of decades time will mostly revolve around technology (in fact it is already beginning to). When our jobs come under threat from the new technology, it is ultimately our responsibility to upgrade ourselves in terms of skillset, as well as proving our value and worth. We have the option to let technology displace us when the time comes, or prepare for that transition in advance to aid it as much as possible. As much as we do not want it to happen anytime soon, the continued emergence of new technologies will change the way our societies have to work and function, that is unavoidable. Society is ever changing and will never stop to wait for us. Hence, since the world will not stop for us, we will have to take the initiative to move with it.
John Lasschuit ®™'s comment, February 1, 2:10 PM
You're rigth Ernest,, but to be honest: social changes take far more time then the rate of automation. Certainly, society will adopt eventuallu, but it's the gap in time between that adaption and what automation brings us that should worry us.

Many different technologies are leading to the end of working. As working is the (only ?) way to earn money, the question asked is "how to give money to everyone". And most of time, the answer is supposing the same amount for all.

This kind of presupposed are numerous regarding a problem that is not currently effective.  But it is surprising to note that developed countries never consider real application of these statements outside their boarders... However, it would be the best way to really globalize the idea...
