Effect of Technological Advancement on Job Market . This article will checkmate the possible effects of technological advancement on job market. The danger technological advancement is posing on human workers.
Robotic is science and technology of robots, their design, manufacture and application. Robots are machines built to carry out some complex task or group of task by physically moving especially one which can be programmed.
It is usually made from metals and designed to look like a human or another creature with top notch intelligence.
Robotics bring about increase efficiency, reduced labour and cost, increased speed and accuracy. It carries out tasks that are to be repeated and reduces errors to e barest minimum. With robots handling most production processes, other workers will have time to concentrate another areas of production.
Effect of Technological Advancement on Job Market
Researches has shown that robots will replace human thereby giving rises to unemployment in e nearest future. While this could be true, we should look at e brighter picture.
Automation could have positive and negative effect in e job market but e positive outweighs negative. Below are positive effect of robotics one job market.
Improved Product Quality
Machines have the capacity to work 24/7 hours a day with breaks and product the same quality of product provided they are in good condition and it won’t get tired unlike humans that will require breaks from to time & so the quality of production is improved.
Automation helps business grow by increasing the profits. When there’s more profit, more business can be established.
Improved Safety & Security
Robots are taking over high risk jobs. Take for instance, in a bottling company where bottles break a lot and could cause serious injuries to workers, workers can do the jobs effectively.
You would agree with me that having to do the same type of job each day can be very tedious and boring. Robotics can help reduce that like in a packaging company that has to package say 3,000 plus products a day that can be boring, but with a machine more than that can be achieved.
While the above effects may seem like it could hasten the rate at which manpower is replaced by machines, below are the benefits it could bring to manpower.
Encourage a Growth & Learning Mindset
With robotics in the picture, people will want to be relevant & so their minds will be geared towards learning skills that robotics will require so their jobs will still be in place.
Creation of New & Better Jobs
They say necessity is the mother of creation but today the reverse is the case; invention is the mother of necessity. Robots will bring about creation of more & even better jobs to correspond to the new innovation, because higher skills will be used.
Like the job of an app developer this could be better than any job anyone could think of & the pay could be very lucrative.
Innovation like app development, data analysis, coding etc. have given rise to more job opportunities that never existed.
Times change & the level of technological advancement will lead to greater level of skill acquisition which will open door for more employment.
Demand for More Human Relation Skills
Machines can’t do everything so for jobs that will require more human skills like psychology; reading people’s minds, listening to and understanding emotions, teaching, health care (counselling) etc. The skills will still be in high demand, people will be needed for the jobs & so jobs will be created.
In conclusion, jobs that were never in existence before are in existence today & people are still working. When need arises, more technologies are invented & new job opportunities are created; although the nature of the job might change.
People will just have to improve on their skills & keep learning new things in order to be relevant in the job market.
