Day by day the implementation of AI and Automation in the most complex verticals is ever growing. Scientists predict by 2035 AI will take over manual labour in all fields including pathology, manufacturing and logistics. Only recently a self-drive car by a by a luxury manufacturer outperformed the lap times set by humans. So is it the end of manned racing? Read on to find out the real impact of AI and Automation in our day to day life.
The advancement is science and technology is to make life easier for humans. It will in no means reduce the role of humans but will only alter our way of thinking and work flow.
Several manufacturing giants are shifting to automation successfully and are reaping the benefits. In this case the role of manual labour is just setting inputs for the machinery and monitoring their work. Maintenance is another important aspect where humans have a major role to play in.
Shifting to AI & Automation is no simple task because it involves a very high initial investment and maintenance cost. It is a completely new experience and takes time to set in and get used to. Handling such complex machinery also needs to right pair of hands. It is high time that we focus more on understanding the way machinery works rather than making the machines understand the thought process of humans.
The report concludes that AI and robotics could put the world on the path to a better world of work, so long as we can implement automation on our own terms. This requires interventions across the manufacturing lifecycle – from the point at which machines are developed to the time they are deployed in the real world.
