The advent of the era of mechanization will have a huge impact on the employment pattern. The employment structure will set a large adjustment with the increase of mechanization. But it will not bring massive unemployment. Mechanization does not mean that the workers are not required, but do the real demand for skilled workers.

For example, the workers of industrial production line are gradually replaced by mechanical and robots, the industrial operation workers will be reduced sharply, but the machine operation process needs to maintain, such as professional and technical personnel.

In the adjustment of industrial structure, the new industry will appear. Equipment manufacturing, IT industry and other emerging industries will attract new employment personnel.Therefore, the emergence of automation, the innovation ability of enterprises put forward higher requirements.

The artificial intelligence is always a controversial topic among scientists,ethicists and economists. Some of them are always concerned about the huge lost in labor market which may caused by artificial intelligence due to its rapid development.In my opinion, the above concern should never get in the way of social development.

Traced back to the history as reference, the Industrial Revolution helped the human beings to step into a new era, which replaced the manual labor with the machine so that the production efficiency was increased
and some old vocations were indubitably reduced by the new ones.

Similarly, the usage of artificial intelligence may eliminate the basic job positions for the sake of efficiency,but with the dramatic evolution of society at the same time, human beings are forced to reconsider the essence of work which provided the opportunity for the birth of the professions for next generation just as the ones during Industrial Revolution.

Whether automation can destroyed more jobs or create more ones is still arguable as it depends on the economic environment of certain industry during certain period.
It's interesting although entrepreneurs, government officials, may have different views on the changes on the job market, there's still not solid statistics and analysis on the number and causes of job creations and decimation due to the emerging digital businesses.

In general I agree with the saying that automation Won't Decimate the overall Job Market, but it's also the common trend that more and more labor intensive work can be superseded by artificial intelligence, whether for industrial use or family use. Some traditional professional services such as medical and legal work to some extend can also transformed to its higher end, to provide face-to-face customized services while cutting down those low end of general researches, Q&A, data collection and analysis with programmed intelligent devices or platforms.

Digital can change the process and also consumer experience. However the higher needs of human beings for esteem and self-realization can not be fully supported by the digital work. On the contrary, it will also create new job opportunities to convert the virtual products onto a real life for newly generated services. Digital is a tool and bus for futures, not a skill or destination; Artificial intelligence provides more convenience to consumers, but it have and will never build an intimacy and interaction relationships like a real body, mind and all of its emotions, spirits and beliefs. There's still long way to go create more jobs in the digital world with the distinguish of those for traditional crafts and services.

I'm agree with Ginni's viewpoint. The automation could replace the job which don't need the experience and creative idea.

As China has pushed-off its “Internet plus initiative”, it’s a trend that business need to be digital and have competitive advantages. That is to say, “make difference and take the lead”. I think that new technology will destroy some jobs of labor and create new sets of jobs at the same time. Everyone has lived through disruption and need to be self-taught all the life. The way we educate people will also change. They no longer need to learn handmade work, but to learn programming to realize and replace manual work.

This article reminds me the movie Wall E. In the movie, when the artificial intelligence can do almost everything, what are the human beings doing? They just live in their own virtual world and do nothing else. But I do not think this would happen in real world. I agree with the opinion that new job sets would be created with the growth of digital world. The developing of automation can accelerate the discovery and understanding of the world. But the more we learn, the more we find we do not know. Thus, new problems need to be solved, and new jobs are created. It always happened in the revolutionaries.

Maybe commonly held belief that automation technology is destroying jobs and displacing workers across the country. For my opinion, while there are surely some jobs rendered obsolete due to automation, workers are still needed, but for higher-level, more tech-related jobs.

So it is important to educate the next generation of job seekers so that they are fit to fill new high-tech positions.

I do agree with him, though robots take place of people in so dangerous,terrible,unknown environment, men still can hold their job in the future. Because we have our thinking while robots do not have.

I still doubt the Job market after raising of cognitive technology.
Maybe in short time, it will not influence the job market. By using cloud, digital, big data, it could help to increase productivity, increase efficiency. But while the mature of cognitive, the laber market will be influence much, less people do more. This will expand to other domain.
World will be change, more people will join servise marketing. People have more time and resource to think and improve life quality.

In long term, automation will create new jobs but for now, it makes what you do better.

Jobs with a particularly low cognitive load are in particular danger. While those jobs involve transferring knowledge from one area to another, or thinking broadly, creatively and integratively, are secure from the trends.

Using statistical pattern in data, Machines learn to work on difficult tasks, improve the efficiency of working process. However, we deploy machines to make the world more efficient, human still need to work as a problem solving role, overseeing the process and coming to rescue if something urgent occurs.

People should not over worry about AI. Like any of the technological advancement in human history, application of AI would instantly reshape job market but increase the productivity and welfare of whole society. Invention of automobiles vanished cart drivers but created mechanics. Similarly, Watson will release labor force from simple and repetitive work and enable them with more creative and intellectual jobs.

Artificial intelligence or we can say Cognitive technology will involve a big industry revolution, it will leverage people's work efficiency and also will replace some people's job. When some job can be done by robot, and it's cost is lower than people, why capitalist won't use it? FOXCONN is purchasing lots of robots and cutting down its number of employees, many low technology jobs is done by robot, which replaced the people. We can image lots of jobs will be done by robot, it's social development trend.

Automation can, on one hand, release more labor resource to be engaged in high end jobs; on the other hand, to some extent, release people from work to enjoy life, what most of people are not able to do now. Moreover, it is kind of filtering to weed out those whose skills are replaced. They are forced to lose jobs and seek for other work. This is also the symbol of the jungle law in the society full of competitions.

Automation developed very fast. Some industry has tried to designed Roberts to replace many workload of normal workers. They are more effective and organized than human beings in some area. Some kind of jobs might be replaced by automations. However, more new creative ones will come into market. Men should not be fear for the automation but accept them and try to think before lose jobs.

Cognitive technology is one of the attractive creation in these days. And with the more advanced technology and common usage of the automation, the working people may lose their job in the future. And it may in the future, the most highly paid workers are those who could develop interesting and creative ideas.

Thus, as a deep thinker, we should have a good plan for our future. What kind of career path that we want to pursue afterwards? Is my current job could be easily substituted by the machines/technology? Or it is an very skillful and technical job that the both the experience and the creativity is the core competitiveness. If so, I think this is a right path for our peer students to choose.

It's a classic topic to argue whether manpower will be replaced with machine or we could say artificial intelligence . But I thought it will enhance the fierce of competition that will help to explore more and more possibilities in the future for those man replaced.

Technology can be beneficial

Post by Paul_lu on Tue Sep 20, 2016 9:16 am

I can agree with Rometty's viewpoint, seen from my own perspective the cognitive technology is another new thing which definitely will bring change, but as the history said no change can kill human being, only themselves can suicide, technology itself can only cause short term panic, from long term consideration, it must bring value to whole society, because it will release people from heavy data work, and move to a more challenge area where really need brilliant brain, or leave people think about future, involve some area with more uncertainty.

Astonished when I saw the robots in the garage was able to pick up ordered goods accurately and automatically through the media. I think that's just a symbol and reflection to the trend of technology development. Without a doubt most of our jobs today will be replaced by automation especially those are process oriented. Robots are more reliable and cost effective than the human being in the manner of labor force. To secure our financial status in the future, we need to occupy more creative jobs.

I think that the new innovation in Automation won't decimate job market in the recent time. But automation and the using of Robot is a trend that a lot company will meet it and take advantage of it. For example, by now the cost of human resource in China is relatively high and the other developing countries may not have complete infrastructure. So using robot instead human would be a good way. But we should refresh own education system to meet the trend. The old way of just teaching knowledge may out-date. It is important to teaching the kids skills to adapt to the quick-developing society.

Automation may not be able to decimate job market today, but what about tomorrow in near future? More and more manufacturing process have been automated. With the fast development of technology, machines are becoming more and more "smart". With self-learning capability, AlphaGo beat human chess champion.
From a bright side, automation do help release human from doing low-end manufacturing work, so human can focus on more creative jobs. But we need to consider how to transfer ourselves in this era, what are the jobs that can not be replaced by machines.

With the development of technologies, automation influences the employment market more or less. People have two different opinions regarding the change. Some people think optimistically. They think that although some workers will be replaced by robot, they still can be trained to find higher level jobs. And the new technologies will stimulate a new industrial prosperity. Meanwhile, on the contrary, some people think the new technologies will lead to mass unemployment, and thus result in a rising conflict of society and politics.

In my opinion, the automation impact to those traditional labor-intensive industries. For example, the low-technology and repeated jobs will be done by robots. But we should face the situation in a different perspective. The automation set our hands free from the heavy work, and thus we can create a new way to work more efficiently. Automation stimulates us to find a better way or a better relationship for work. For example, the work of a junior accountant will be done by software. How should the junior accountant do? I think he should consider transfer to another direction that links to his background but with good prospect.

The low-risky jobs are those need social skills and creativities, especially those jobs need to make decisions under uncertainty and put forward innovative ideas. Therefore, it is a wind indicator that we should learn more new skills to adapt the changes.
