Robert Deignan is one of the leading technology experts in the United States. He is also the co-founder and chief executive officer of ATS Digital Services. Robert Deignan has given his thoughts on the rise of artificial intelligence and automation being implemented into the workforce. No one actually knows how the workers will be affected or how much influence that automation or artificial intelligence will actually have on the employees or productivity in the workplace. The question that needs to be answered is how will automation or artificial intelligence affect the American economy and the global economy as a whole.
Workers in factories, warehouses, and many other industries fear that automation and artificial intelligence will put them out of work. Individuals have a right to fear because articles are being published by scientist that machines may start to outperform humans in a variety of tasks. How will people take care of their families if machines will be taking some of the jobs off the market. This is why people question automation and quite frankly a lot of people are even reluctant to the use of automation. The good thing about animation and artificial intelligence is that machines are only good at repetitive tasks such as sewing or assembling items on an assembly line. People have said that driving jobs could be on the line but I seriously doubt it because driving is a highly skilled job and you will always need some type of human being because machines can malfunction and cause of accidents that can lead to death.
Individuals can protect themselves from animated or artificial intelligence taking their jobs by focusing on getting careers in the healthcare sector such as certified nursing assistants, licensed practical nurse, registered nurse, and so forth. The healthcare industry is one of the fields that automation and artificial intelligence will not take over. Because people trust humans with their lives not machines. Other jobs that will not be taken by artificial intelligence because they cannot feel or bring human touch that is needed are therapists, social workers, and teachers. Basically any career that requires human contact, emotional connection, and interpersonal skills will not be taken over by automation or artificial intelligence.
