    We’ve all heard the warning cries: automation will disrupt entire industries and put millions of people out of jobs. In fact, up to 45 percent of existing jobs can be automated using current technology. However, this may not necessarily apply to the education sector. After a detailed analysis of more than 2,000-plus work activities for more than 800 occupations, a report by McKinsey & Co states that of all the sectors examined, “…the technical feasibility of automation is lowest in education.”

  • Robo-Caregiving & Why You Might Delegate Your Loved Ones to a Robot

    Robotics is already changing how we live, shop, invest, travel, and soon, robo-caregivers will transform how we provide care. Advances in AI will deliver extraordinarily innovative services in support of our loved ones. However, the use of robots to care for our children, elderly and disabled will also give rise to some very human questions. Caregiving is social science jargon for providing unpaid support to a family member or friend who has physical, psychological or development needs. Most caregivers do not know what a caregiver is or even know that they are caregivers. Instead people providing care consider what they do to be the acts of a loving parent, partner, spouse, adult child, or good friend.

    For Dr. Hiroshi Ishiguro, one of the most interesting things about androids is the changing questions they pose us, their creators, as they evolve. Does it, for example, do something to the concept of being human if a human-made creation starts telling you about what kind of boys ‘she’ likes?

    Technische Assistenzsysteme – vom chirurgischen Operationsroboter bis hin zum selbstfahrenden Auto – werden immer intelligenter und können teilweise selbstständig lernen. In Zukunft werden sie mehr Alltagsaufgaben übernehmen und die Menschen damit entlasten. Wie genau diese Zukunft aussehen kann, steht im Mittelpunkt des Zukunftskongresses „Technik zum Menschen bringen“ am 26. und 27. Juni 2017 in Bonn.

    Fear of job loss to automation is growing, with each announcement of exciting technological progress generating a backlash from those who could end up unemployed because of it. Amazon Go is eliminating the need for cashiers. Self-driving vehicles won’t need truckers and cabbies at their wheels. Artificial intelligence is beginning to diagnose disease, perform surgery, and even write films and articles. No job is safe forever, and we’re constantly being reminded of it, with little to no reassurance about what we’ll all do when computers and robots are running the world. A report released last week by the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) offers some reprieve, bringing three pieces of welcome news.
