What we do
By 2020, some seven million jobs will have been lost due to technological changes related to industry 4.0, the World Economic Forum 2016 reports. The disappearance of some professions - and the creation of some others as well - is the result of Massive influx of robots and new technologies into the world of work. Many jobs today are in crisis of existence and the situation does not promise to change. Jobs with more or less acceptance and good or badly paid do not escape a future in which the idea of ??a profession assured for a lifetime is increasingly unlikely.
The industrial sector is the one that aims at a greater elimination of jobs. Workers, assemblers and other professionals related to the industry are facing a complex panorama, whose horizon points to automation by leaps and bounds. Robots, combined with artificial intelligence or automatic learning, are making assembly chains work more efficiently.
Major companies like cyber it world have already announced plans to replace their labor force with industrial robots. The world's largest manufacturing company, Foxconn, has already replaced 60,000 workers by robots in several of its factories in China.
The Internet and the cloud are two of the main drivers of change in the world of work. The emergence of 5G networks and the normalization of the Internet in things (virtual interconnection between objects and people) are added to these generators, putting in check also many professions related to the service sector. Travel agencies, car rental companies and other types of intermediaries face a multiconnected planet (43% of the population is online) where it seems impossible to survive off the grid. The same with motorists: with self-employed cars, the disappearance of professional drivers, in addition to other professions related to street assistance, seems an inevitable result.
The cheapest and most manageable 3D printers will end with many middlemen and small factories. Artificial intelligence, deep learning and the emergence of new forms of exchange or virtual currencies will affect labor relations in the financial world; As well as counselors, economic specialists and other industry employees.
Lots of paranoia? No: technological progress is advancing faster than people who should implement basic practices, to find a working coexistence between man and his own inventions.
