Given this precise information, in a span of say 10-15 years, humans will barely be required in the workplace. Technology is undoubtedly a necessity in today’s world but in no way should it be made an addiction. Moreover, with the invasion of automation in the very core of our being, it is practically impossible to even go without using any form of technology for even a day.
Technology as explained by various dictionaries refers to the study and use of applied science. It can be also simply understood as the knowledge and study of the industrial, mainly practical, science and discoveries that can be applied to our lives. The impact it has made to our standards of living cannot be taken for granted. For instance, imagine living without your smart-phone for 24 hours straight. Isn’t the thought too revolting?
Robots will take over most of our jobs
More often than not, it is because of technology that we can be relieved of the burden of performing tedious tasks and spared the monotony in wholesome. However, in spite of the facts stated above, a recent study reveals how robots will take over most of our jobs within a span of 30 years. The rise of machines in this so-called Machine-Age will lead to unemployment rates greater than 50 per cent.
There are no two ways about how, due to the pace of mind-boggling technology over the past few years, there has been a constant rise in the GDP of several economies. In addition to this, the prices have also begun to decline and can now be afforded by a greater class of people based on incomes. In fact all of the above has been possible with a simultaneous increase and improvement in the volume and quality of production. Conversely, it is assumed that we are approaching a time in which machines will be able to outperform humans at almost any task.
Computers are redefining our lifestyles
The main issue here is that computers are redefining our lifestyles. The question under consideration should be whether the technology we are developing ultimately going to benefit mankind? The injection of automation in our lives has substituted initial manual activities like the jobs of boning chicken, pharmacists, prison guards, and similar other forms that could have been mechanised.
Experts have conducted a survey and the study elucidates how the existing technologies were already eliminating middle-class jobs and claims that the pace of advancement in this particular field of artificial intelligence is increasing. Before it is too late, we need to rise to the occasion and address this challenge in order to avoid the possibility of human labour-force going obsolete. Are we really going to let industry ruin creativity?
