Hello my name is Tom and I am reporting for The Sunday Times about the future of work.
There are three specifics which have been affected by the Covid19 pandemic:
- The gig-economy
- Remote working
I will be reporting automation for this post. It is where robots and computers take over humans' jobs.
The Predicted Change:
Automation is bad in many ways:
- Some people really like their jobs; if a robot took it, the person who liked the job would be very sad.
- If a robot took over a teachers job and a child had mental issues in the class, it would not be helpfull until we get advanced enough technology.
- If there is a power-cut or a robot malfunctions, the whole system, which the robot works in, could colapse.
But there is a bright side to automation:
- Automation will open up 58,000,000 more jobs than there already are.
- Robots can be programed to do some of harder jobs that humans find "imposible".
- Technology can not catch any diseases like Coronavirus.
The effect of the pandemic:
People think that the pandemic is a turning point for automation because Covid19 denied us to be within 2 metres of eachother, that opened up the opportunity for robots to work more in factories where humans would usually work.
The skills needed for the future of automation:
- You need listening to here what ideas people have for the future that could affect you specifically.
- You need speaking up to make your voice heard.
- You need problem solving to create new ideas.
Thanks for reading my Final Piece😁👀
