Robot industry







A new robot industry economy has made jobs quick and easy to complete with innovated technology automation. Humans and robots are now competing for jobs.


San DiegoCounty has established a variety of companies and factories that are moving to support consumer industries rather than only for U.S. military forces. These consumer industries include hospitals, hotels, and grocery stores, according to Dan McSwain, Business Columnist.


Artificial intelligence machines are replacing postindustrial jobs as well as employment in specific fields, such as translating languages and reading X-rays.


U.S. military services have automated drone aircrafts sent to complete missions for National Security Surveillances, which has reduced the harm of American soldiers, according to Patrick Marshall, Freelance Writer.


New technology innovation allows a safe environment and growing economy through its range of profit making. Car companies, such as Ford made 2 million cars each year. Agriculture employment between 1900 and 2000 dropped from 41 percent to 2 percent during the rise of technology innovation, according to McSwain. Many Americans moved to urban cities to gain labor work, but lost their jobs within industrialization.


“Innovation and competition drove prices of Ford from $825 in 1909 to $260 by 1925 just $3,500 in 2013 dollars,” according to McSwain.


In addition, the artificial intelligence industry has led a growing economy as well as a variety of employment opportunities. The robot industry has not achieved human-level performances through reasoning and perception. AI scientists believe robots will reach human capabilities in the near future through new learning strategies, according to Nils Nilsson, Director of the Artificial Intelligence Center at SRI International Menlo Park.     


“Armed with rapidly growing databases of virus DNA sequences, scientists are now using a branch of artificial intelligence in which computers develop algorithms based on the data they have been given to identify key properties in viruses,” according to Emily Singer, editor for Quanta Magazine.


“Understanding these properties will help researchers identify the most dangerous new flu strains and could lead to more effective vaccines.”


Artificial intelligence has the ability to support humanity. Technology automation can affect the employment wages of U.S. citizens. People consume less than the means of production and high demand for consumerism increases. 


“After a certain level of consumption reaches, people just don’t have the extra time, attention or desire to absorb even more goods and services, regardless of their cost,” according to Nilsson.


The high demand of consumerism leads to the necessity of new employment opportunities. Reduction of costs is achieved with the support of technology automated systems.


According to Margaret Boden, environmentalist, the new postmodern age of automation could be “rehumanizing” rather than “dehumanizing.”


Artificial intelligence and increased technology automation contributes to natural resources, such as food, shelter, and manufactured goods as well as administrative bureaucracies. The high technology input creates more service jobs in areas of interest for people, according to Nilsson.


“There is no historical evidence that rapid productivity growth leads to loss of jobs. In general, industries use the most efficient production techniques to grow and prosper, and hire more workers,” Albus, Artificial Intelligence researcher said. “Markets for their products expand and they diversify into new product lines.”


The use of technologies, such as data warehousing discovers new patterns of data and other artificial intelligence technologies can enhance more knowledge base and management processes for the new industry and economy.


“By the adjustment in the relative price of labor and capital, shows that both people and machines can be fully employed regardless of their relative productivity,” Herbert Simon, AI scientist said.


All labor work will be employed in “equilibrium” even when machines out number humans the economy’s productivity improves through technology augmentation, according to Simon. As the rate of interest remains constant machinery improvement produces higher wages for citizens.


Many human development and socialization skills, humans are born with requires performance. Humans seek intelligence by learning different skills from various stages.


Machines are becoming like humans. Robot devices are increasing in performances that include surgical procedures to professions, such as law offices according to Marshall.  


In Point Loma, San Diego SeaBotix has created robots that take action as lifeguards and rescue people’s life through detecting a person underwater, according to McSwain.


Automated technology allows humans to collaborate with machines by completing tasks that humans are incapable of doing. Humans and machines are working together enhancing environmental standards and systematic processes.
