What jobs will we have in the future is examined to include robots or human cyborgs
This COVID 19 Pandemic is changing the world and we don’t really know what the future will be. However, we humans have imagination and experience so let’s look at possibilities of changes needed to reset global economies and how we can survive both health and economic problems. Also, let’s look at relevant things related to the future including robots and human cyborgs.
NOTE: This information is designed to give us ideas and to look at what alternative jobs we could do. Unless we are currently out of work there is no need to change unless an opportunity occurs based on our research
Does AI take over control from humans?
A possible future in which artificial intelligence (AI) becomes the dominant form of intelligence on Earth, with computers or robots effectively taking control of the planet is unlikely this century but many are warning us now, that we must be careful of autonomous AI. For example, Autonomous Soldiers designed to kill, or Autonomous Vehicles that may have make a split-second decision on who it should protect. We should always control AI
Does AI have rights and will laws change
The Law is yet to include rights for anything that is not human. Hard to know who is responsible. For example, an autonomous vehicle crashes and is deemed to be at fault, from who does the other parties seek compensation? The owner of the vehicle, the designer, the software programmer, or the city if road signs not installed etc, Some AI can monitor our health with devices that check our vital signs and sleep patterns and those with a severe heart condition can install and app that connects directly to your cardiologist who can intervenes quickly if the 24/7 Electro cardiogram shows problems needing attention. We all have the need to have an ID Card or other evidence with so many service providers or for security, however will this lead to a chip being implanted into a new born child and become the only ID you will ever need. Will all humans need to obtain a chip just like our pets?
Our laws do not see our smart phones and watches as part of us and are treated as separate entities. However, let’s consider a pacemaker to ensure the heart functions or a robotic mobility assistance device. These are definitely connected and are an essential part of the human but the law doesn’t give the pacemaker or the devices worn any rights with respect to the data or any effect on the wearer other than replacement of equipment. Will we see changes in the laws on such devices to do like we have done with autonomous vehicles.SEE MORE FROM WIKIPEDIA (Not part of our website)
Robots or Human Cyborgs
In this 21st Century are some of us or, will all of us become human cyborgs.
Although Cyborgs are machines and modern cyborgs can be placed into a “body” that looks human it is still not “Human” and as such do not have rights (see above on laws)
However, regardless of our overall belief that we are not Cyborgs we are becoming cyborgs of a different kind by wearing or carrying electronics has improved our abilities so much that we can and do obtain knowledge by a voice command or to push a few buttons
Our smart phones are not yet inside our body and hard wired to our brain, but we do definitely rely on them. Look around people on a bus or in a restaurant or children and you will see most of them are in some way using phones, either sending information or receiving some stimulus from an electronic device? Does it really matter that the electronics are not implanted in our heads? How much of your day do you spend engaged with some communications device? Is there an intelligible difference between using it for information and it tracking you? What about smart watches that constantly check your health and appointment reminders
Have IT devices taken away our privacy?
Our privacy matters because privacy is what allows us to determine who we are and a key to our identity. The knowledge we get allows us to function in this highly networked world but at the same time we are being monitored constantly. The information collected is not restricted to the wearer but are collected by others. Sensors track us everywhere we go, know what we are looking at. They know where we live and what we do and what we want and after your specific data is sold to different third parties, they can recommend products and services. Criminals change phones constantly to avoid surveillance. Governments tracking patients with COVID 19 and all citizens using their app will be warned if they are near an infected person.
Will we need to add a chip to our brain?
As we get to resolve legal issues and privacy to accommodate change many people see a merger between humans and machines where we will see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence. This is most evident in the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself because it takes human time to type the questions and do the research whereas IT works a trillion times faster. We may design an interface added to our brain able to access artificial intelligence. Will robots or human cyborgs develop more?
Where will you work?
As a direct result of the COVID 19 pandemic many people were encouraged to work at home. What was not expected is that this exposed the old method of centralised work places in cities as being expensive and inefficient.
Organisations worked on the principal that one centralised office was cheaper than having several suburban offices realised that people working at home cost them very much less. Workers realised that they saved travel time and its associated costs, They didn't have to buy lunch, or to dress in suitable office acceptable clothing, etc., and were able to become more efficient when instructions were more specific and in writing.
From the aspect of health we now know that social distancing worked in reducing exposure to COVID 19 and it became obvious that crowded offices, packed lifts and entrance lobbies were hot spots for any transmittable diseases. The larger the city the more danger. (New York City has an overall population density of 27,544 per square kilometre)
It is safe to say that most people now prefer to work at home. However, whilst from all of the above, decentralisation is desirable there is an economic problem. What if they all left and we have a "ghost town" A general estimate (no statistics done) shows that every office worker in a city job actually creates work for 7 people. Transport, food and beverages, retail shopping, entertainment etc.
Are Robots taking our jobs?
Robots are slowly taking jobs that humans usually do, however robots also create jobs. Humans used to do boring repetitive jobs, and we are pleased that they can work 24 hours a day continually
Here is a list of jobs that Robots are taking
- Bookkeepers particularly in Banks
- Compensation and Benefits Managers
- Computer Support Specialists
- Market Research Analysts
- Advertising Salespeople
- Retail Salespeople
Here are jobs that need humans, however it is possible that outcomes will become a merge of robots or human cyborgs and humans working together as we improve services and become more efficient.
Humans may rely on information from IT and interact with machines but when it comes to personal matters humand prefer to talk to a human. Major online sales organisations use IT for almost everything but use humans for customer services articulalry complaints
