We have the tools and technology to work less and live better

We have the tools and technology to work less and live better | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

In developed countries, at least, we have the technology and tools for everyone to work less and still live highly prosperous lives, if only we structure our work and society towards that goal. Today’s discussions about the future of work quickly end up in fanciful predictions of total automation. More likely, there will continue to be new and varied jobs to fill a five-day work week. And so today’s discussions need to move beyond the old point about the marvels of technology, and truly ask: what is it all for? Without a conception of a good life, without a way to distinguish progress that’s important from that which keeps us on the hedonic treadmill, our collective inertia will mean that we never reach Keynes’s 15-hour working week.

Machines and AI are taking over jobs lost to Coronavirus

Machines and AI are taking over jobs lost to Coronavirus | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

This replacement of humans with machines may pick up more speed in coming months as companies move from survival mode to figuring out how to operate while the pandemic drags on. Robots could replace as many as 2 million more workers in manufacturing alone by 2025, according to a recent paper by economists at MIT and Boston University. “This pandemic has created a very strong incentive to automate the work of human beings,” says Daniel Susskind, a fellow in economics at Balliol College, University of Oxford, and the author of A World Without Work: Technology, Automation and How We Should Respond. “Machines don’t fall ill, they don’t need to isolate to protect peers, they don’t need to take time off work.”

Robots don’t get sick

Robots don’t get sick | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Should work automation replace people? This is a debate as old as the dawn of technology, famously illustrated by the Luddites who opposed automated textile manufacturing machines. As the COVID crisis accelerates work automation, crisis-driven imperatives may lead to short-term decisions, such as replacing humans with automation. Costs may go down, risk may be reduced, and patients and customers may enjoy the novelty … in the short run.

Are such solutions sustainable and correct for the longer-run?

The paradox is that as the COVID crisis accelerates our experience and acceptance of automation, it also offers important opportunities to see beyond solutions like human-replacement automation, and instead to build a more complete and nuanced approach.

Innovation is the key to survival in the New Normal

Innovation is the key to survival in the New Normal | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Crises are like washing machines, they toss and turn everything in one go. This is precisely what the world has been experiencing since the outbreak of the global coronavirus pandemic. The health disaster led to an economic fallout which resulted in the IMF declaring a recession as bad as, or worse, than in 2009.

Against this backdrop, conglomerates faced massive challenges to sustain, survive and adapt to the new world order. Many among them paused operations or invoked their business continuity plans. But those who managed to stay afloat, despite the sectoral doldrums, created a niche for themselves, by switching to digital-based models. They not only sustained but are now flourishing as operations and logistics ease around the world.

The entrepreneurial strategy you didn’t know you needed

The entrepreneurial strategy you didn’t know you needed | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

When we think about building and growing a business, one of the first words that comes to mind is strategy. For most, their business strategy is built around social media, networking, a strong business plan, and a goal of being the most productive version of themselves they can be. They may hire a coach or attend training, buy the best planner, set goals, and still struggle with getting themselves to perform to their own expectations daily. Just like in a game of chess though, a truly functional strategy must consider all angles, all potentialities, and manage risk well.

So, what is the best strategy to becoming a truly productive and successful business owner?

The skills you need to kick some serious ass

The skills you need to kick some serious ass | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

In the new world of work, skills are currency. Not your job title, but your skills. And the speed at which you’ll need to go about learning new skills is increasing at a stupidly fast pace. A study by IBM found that back in 2014, workers needed between 0 to 4 days to close their skills gap. That figure jumped to 26 days by 2018. This means that you need to spend about 15% of your time at work developing skills just to stay current let alone get ahead of the game. Getting ahead of the game will be tough too, with Barclays reporting that 60% of adults lack the basic employability skills to succeed in the future of work. And while the Fourth Industrial Revolution is all about technology, the most in-demand skills aren’t necessarily digital.

The “new normal” has taken a “new” twist. For decades, the privilege of working from home seems like it has been largely reserved for elite, white-collar workers. In a matter of weeks, the COVID-19 crisis forced millions more workers into remote work—and a recent survey finds that many prefer keeping that arrangement.

6 strategies to increase Learning in the Workplace

6 strategies to increase Learning in the Workplace | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Organizations increasingly encourage lifelong learning, but low self-awareness may obstruct the effectiveness of these initiatives.

People lacking self-awareness are less likely to accept feedback and, having an inflated opinion of their performance, take credit for success while blaming others for failures. In the workplace, they may forgo learning opportunities, thereby impeding organizational success.

 

Metacognitive strategies, which focus on the ability to monitor, understand, and control powerful cognitive abilities, can be an effective leadership technique to increase self-awareness such that employees may become better learners and, consequently, better performers.

The fourth generation of AI is here, and it’s called Artificial Intuition | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the most powerful technologies ever developed, but it’s not nearly as new as you might think. In fact, it’s undergone several evolutions since its inception in the 1950s. The first generation of AI was ‘descriptive analytics,’ which answers the question, “What happened?” The second, ‘diagnostic analytics,’ addresses, “Why did it happen?” The third and current generation is ‘predictive analytics,’ which answers the question, “Based on what has already happened, what could happen in the future?”

How many jobs do Robots really replace?

How many jobs do Robots really replace? | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

In many parts of the U.S., robots have been replacing workers over the last few decades. But to what extent, really? Some technologists have forecast that automation will lead to a future without work, while other observers have been more skeptical about such scenarios.

Now a study co-authored by an MIT professor puts firm numbers on the trend, finding a very real impact — although one that falls well short of a robot takeover. The study also finds that in the U.S., the impact of robots varies widely by industry and region, and may play a notable role in exacerbating income inequality.

How are robots helping in the Coronavirus pandemic?

How are robots helping in the Coronavirus pandemic? | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

A cylindrical robot rolls into a treatment room to allow health care workers to remotely take temperatures and measure blood pressure and oxygen saturation from patients hooked up to a ventilator. Another robot that looks like a pair of large fluorescent lights rotated vertically travels throughout a hospital disinfecting with ultraviolet light. Meanwhile a cart-like robot brings food to people quarantined in a 16-story hotel. Outside, quadcopter drones ferry test samples to laboratories and watch for violations of stay-at-home restrictions.

These are just a few of the two dozen ways robots have been used during the COVID-19 pandemic, from health care in and out of hospitals, automation of testing, supporting public safety and public works, to continuing daily work and life.

La sustitución de puestos de trabajo por robots inquieta solo al 14,2% de los directivos españoles | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Aunque la pandemia ha conllevado que, en algunos ámbitos, la digitalización de las empresas avance a pasos agigantados, lo cierto es que el grado de compromiso de los directivos con la transformación tecnológica de su empresa ya era un valor fundamental para el 76% de los líderes. Aactualmente, un 40,3% afirma estar muy comprometido y un 52,3%, comprometido. Tan solo un 4,4% reconoce estar poco comprometido y un 3%, nada comprometido. El grado de compromiso con la transformación digital es ligeramente superior en los jefes (78,4%) que entre las jefas (73%), aunque por poca diferencia. Estas conclusiones se extraen del «Barómetro Badenoch + Clark sobre managers y directivos en España» elaborado por la firma de consultoría y selección de ejecutivos del Grupo Adecco.

Leaders are increasingly looking for employees to break the confines of their job descriptions, looking for problems and for creative ways to solve them. But for most people, employers can’t expect this attitude shift to just happen. It takes real effort to shift to a mindset of continuous learning and searching. And a first step to instilling passion across the workforce is understanding why some people take on the challenge.

We're entering the AI twilight zone between narrow and general AI

We're entering the AI twilight zone between narrow and general AI | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

With recent advances, the tech industry is leaving the confines of narrow artificial intelligence (AI) and entering a twilight zone, an ill-defined area between narrow and general AI.

To date, all the capabilities attributed to machine learning and AI have been in the category of narrow AI. No matter how sophisticated – from insurance rating to fraud detection to manufacturing quality control and aerial dogfights or even aiding with nuclear fission research – each algorithm has only been able to meet a single purpose. This means a couple of things: 1) an algorithm designed to do one thing (say, identify objects) cannot be used for anything else (play a video game, for example), and 2) anything one algorithm “learns” cannot be effectively transferred to another algorithm designed to fulfill a different specific purpose. For example, AlphaGO, the algorithm that outperformed the human world champion at the game of Go, cannot play other games, despite those games being much simpler.
