How will robots impact our future generation job opportunity?

I am very curious if robots will take over much of our work industries. They are making robots more and more complex every day .... what will our future come down to? The kids or the robots? #robotics #robotics-engineer #technology

Soumya’s Answer

Thanks for the question. Robots would definitely impact the nature and type of job opportunities. Automation improves efficiency and performance and hence humans have to work their way around to fit into the ecosystem. The key thing in my opinion would be:

1. Upskill, upskill and upskill: Always be flexible to adopting new skills. Skills which were relevant 5 years before have changed for the better.
2. Be aware of the new and latest technologies: While it is important to have your fundamentals and core skills, you can combine those with latest technologies effectively to be a valuable employee in your work-place.
3. Lastly, always prepare for multiple outcomes in your career and ensure you understand where you belong.

Hi Christopher! Fun question...job opportunities will be different!

This article from the New York Times is balanced: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/11/style/robots-jobs-children.html

The company I work for published this earlier this week: https://www.delltechnologies.com/en-us/press/new-dell-technologies-research-reveals-divided-vision-of-the-future.htm?linkId=47581234

If you do a search on skills needed by graduates of say, 2020, then you will see that there will be jobs for those who are flexible, creative, work with their hands, cross cultural understanding, social intelligence...a design mindset.

Pawan’s Answer

I feel next tech robots are actually creating new, high-paying jobs that require skilled workers. While it is true that robots are replacing low-skilled workers and automating the tasks that they perform, robots and automation are requiring jobs that focus workers on higher-value work. For example, in manufacturing, robots can perform menial tasks such as raw materials sorting, transporting and stocking, while higher-skilled roles such as quality-related tasks, which humans are more suitable for, can be completed by higher-skilled workers

Hi Christopher,

The next generation of robots isn’t working to replace people, it’s working to improve the lives and jobs of people. We see that in the industrial world, where robot design is pivoting from giant mechanical arms that take up factory floors, to smaller, more collaborative bots, that are designed to work alongside people. While these collaborative bots only make up 3% of the market today, they will make up 34% of the market by 2025.
