What is the future of robots and artificial intelligence?

Every era of modern history has had an industrial revolution. The mechanization of textiles has transformed the 18th century, the cradle of electricity has been bent in the swing of the 19th century, information technology has transformed the late 20th century. And now this newcomer is beginning the 21st century robot era.

Expected novels have made it their honey for ages. But are we ready to hand over our work, our profession, some part of our life to them? And, are we already worried: if man were to put his intelligence into machines, what would he have?

Eighty-five percent of the professions that will be practiced in 2030 still do not exist, according to a report published in 2017 by Dell and the “Institute for the Future”, a California think tank. Deadlines are fast approaching.

“What are we going to do with you?”, Entrepreneur Nicholas Hazard took his pilgrim’s stick. A supporter of an “inclusive and sustainable” economy, he went to meet with 21 future professions who would practice them.

What will happen if the screen-born generation becomes a happy helper to get rid of virtual reality and help restore the taste of ordinary things, conversations, flowers? Unless you prefer to rewild a living nature? Or training your peers for their next vacation in space? The extended athlete’s field, mounted on air cushions, opens up a huge area. Just like drone air control or locust breeding, of which five samples are worth a piece of beef in protein. We are not dreaming: Tomorrow, the robot will prepare your food using 3D food printing …

A guide in the jungle

But how many jobs have been created, how many have been destroyed? Should we fear mass extinction? Couldn’t this high-tech advancement, like the steamroller, roll blue collar workers when white collar workers prefer a little more?

Can robots take our place? (November 2018)

“The tragedy is we don’t train the right people. We are preparing badly for this big change for those who are at risk of losing their jobs and who have to manage in this jungle in two ways, “warned Nicholas Hazard.

Based on these observations with potential catastrophic consequences, he founded an organization, INCO, whose goal is exclusively the most risky. “We train them in digital technology for 3 to 6 months without any education level, resulting in 80 to 85% recruitment. Everything exists, digital training, dumb, stuff, but it’s usually for the happy few, who know how to learn and train. Digital, robotics, agriculture, ecology, health are creating a lot of jobs … so that everyone can find their place, and avoid social harm, we must give a major start to those who are farthest from employment.

Learning at any age

More broadly, the rapid automation of some trades will force you to rethink your career and change jobs frequently. “Continuous learning will become the rule. The countries that will rise to the top will be the ones that have managed to adapt their workforce to the challenge. And to prepare children for autonomy from school by teaching them how to learn.

If it can give a cold sweat – 56% of Europeans say they are worried – this revolution, according to Nicholas Hazard, should, on the contrary, make work more humane.

Take the example of logistics warehouses with work, such as forklift drivers or order pickers, which are extremely difficult. From now on, the robot does the work five to ten times faster.

“By delegating the responsibility of managing it, employees will be able to dedicate their efforts to customer relationships, marketing, communication … all of which the robot is quite incapable of. We are going to call more and more into our most humane faculty.”

Finding the meaning of one’s work for a balance between family life and professional life is a fundamental tendency among the younger generation. What are the consequences? “The impact on the economy is huge,” the entrepreneur predicted.
