Job fear over rise of ro­bots

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

AROUND a quar­ter of Aus­tralians are wor­ried about los­ing their jobs to “ro­bots” as more and more com­pa­nies turn to emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies to en­hance pro­duc­tiv­ity.

Re­search con­ducted by an­a­lyst firm Tel­syte looked at the adop­tion of trans­for­ma­tive tech­nolo­gies – in­clud­ing ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence ( AI), au­to­ma­tion, voice com­mands and vir­tual real­ity – by Aus­tralian or­gan­i­sa­tions. It found nearly two- thirds of busi­nesses are al­ready dab­bling with ma­chine learn­ing or deep learn­ing to im­prove op­er­a­tions or in­flu­ence de­ci­sion mak­ing.

Nearly 90 per cent of Aus­tralian chief in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cers see the in­ter­net of Things ( IoT) be­com­ing crit­i­cal to their or­gan­i­sa­tion within five years
