The consequences of robot’s adaptation and #Digital Revolution
Many social and economic forecasting experts state that shop assistants, drivers, health care workers and teachers are going to lose their jobs in the nearest #future.
So what shall we do?
Relax, we are not able to stop the technological development anyway. And why should we?
Let me be honest with you, I have never met a happy bus driver and have never heard shop assistants be particularly enthusiastic about their work.
Definitely it's a pity that people might lose their jobs, but this process is going to be slow and we should use all the resources of our advanced society to find a way to help them.
There have been similar situations in the past. For example, the changes Margaret #Thatcher introduced to the British industry led to a period of depression in the modern Great Britain, but it's up to us to keep in mind the past experience and avoid falling into the same trap.
First of all, let's make it clear: why are we automating the world?💡
First, to make our lives easier. So that no one had to perform
hard physical work, messy jobs or boring tasks with no personal development involved.
Second, to maximize the performance by using robots where they are more efficient than humans.
What we actually have to do is to modify the education system structure so that everyone could quickly define his or her strengths, develop them and start a career in one of the new professions emerged due to the world automation.
I picture to myself a world where everyone is employed in an inspiring and well-paid position, where every day bring us new knowledge and helps us to fight hunger, wars, illnesses and cruelty, where the resources of every person are aimed to development and not to regress.
#Utopia? The fact is this word has two meaning and few are aware that we still haven't decided which one we choose. οὐτόπος ("no place") or εύτόπος ("good place").
And which one would you choose?
