Advanced technologies are changing our world more and more quickly, in particular with regard to the industry. Since Unimate, which was the first industrial robot installed in 1961 by General Motors on its channels of assemblies, these workers (almost) free invade more and more the industry today. To such a point that the analysts of the Cabinet of studies Oxford Economics feel to 20 million or 8.5 percent, the number of jobs occupied by robotics in 2030 To such a point that the analysts of the Cabinet of studies Oxford Economics feel to 20 million or 8.5 percent, the number of jobs occupied by robotics in 2030.
A growing global robotization
With 2.25 million machines in 2019, robotization of the industry would have tripled in 20 years. Far to stop there, this comprehensive automation would endanger more than 20 million jobs by 2030, of which approximately 14 million in China alone.
A worrying situation since it would profoundly change the company but also local economies. Indeed, the positions that will be filled by the Robots in the future match, of our days, to unskilled jobs. A future disaster, therefore, since non-skilled workers would not reach more to find employment, expanding as well yet the social gap that we can already see.
A disturbing but not inevitable situation
The growing robotization (Robotics) would, at first sight, better productivity and a better world economy. However, if the number of jobs current humans were to fall, this would generate societal mutations already observed by the past. The massive disappearances of posts would cause the creation of other jobs, including some still non-existent of our days. Similarly, some sectors would not be affected, or very little, such as education, health, or, more generally, the trades of service.
