State of the Industry Episode 3: In Response to Robots

Some believe that artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and industrial automation will result in the loss of jobs.

Although it true that these technologies will modernize highly repetitive tasks, it’s important to remember that making an employee twice as productive does not result in eliminating half of the jobs.

In this podcast, Dave Vasko, director of Advanced Technology for Rockwell Automation, talks with Robert D. Atkinson, president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF). They explore how robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence will affect the next-gen workforce.

In this short blog, you can also learn more about how technologies are a substantial driver of labor productivity and economic growth without putting jobs at risk.
