Satyanarayana Outlines the Influence of Automation on Future Society

With expeditious development in robotics and artificial intelligence (AI), automation technology is being used widely at the industrial scale. Automated robots can perform plenty of functions without any human interference.

Multiple sectors such as banking, health, education, IT, manufacturing, etc. are embracing automation to increase their productivity and profitability. Business experts have anticipated that almost 60% of the current industries will have their 30% of work aided by automated technologies by 2030.

There can be many possible scenarios of automation in the future society, but the most likely ones could be:

Widespread and Planned Automation

Technologies that seemed completely impossible could finally be materialized on the mass market. These technologies could include quantum computing and general-purpose AI. Sensor-enhanced infrastructure may provide abundant real-time data.

It can lead to an uninterrupted process of data collection. Legal frameworks could allow monitoring of online as well as offline behaviour. Artificial intelligence could be used in researching complex human behaviour, human anatomy, and various environmental aspects.

The implementation of AI to biology and healthcare along with other disciplines may lead humankind to higher dimensions.

Automation may prompt the developing countries to develop an alternative economic system in compliance with the forthcoming status quo, which can be profiting in many political and social ways.

Rapid Full Automation

Rapid full automation will require rethinking about human labour, redefining the entire value system, and redesigning theories to which currently economies stick. Companies are already using automation to generate esteem in various services and products.

Ecommerce companies are using automation technology to provide personalized product recommendations, which can multiply their profits. Fraudulent transactions and malfunctions in production are also being easily monitored by using AI.

Business experts have forecasted a gradual decline in the global workforce by 2030. Reduced workforce can result in low gross domestic production and slow economic growth. Therefore, the implementation of rapid automation could boost the declining global economy.

Automation might help in tackling several monumental challenges varying from medical research to material science.

New Job Creations and Demand for Different Skills

Automation could lead to growth in demand for work, and consequently, jobs. Economic experts expect an increase in labour demand of up to 12 percent by 2030. Economies having a younger working-age population could see enormous gains.

Automation will not only add new jobs but may present some new occupations which one cannot imagine today. These new occupations may account for up to 10 percent of the total existing occupations by 2030.

For instance, who would have thought that the arrival of the computer in the mass market will lead to the origination of millions of jobs today? Most of these jobs were unimagined before the arrival of the computer.

Automation will prompt the new generation to learn advanced technological skills, critical thinking skills, creativity skills, and complex data processing. This will accelerate the demand for ever trending digital skills.
