Workers everywhere are concerned about the changes that automation is bringing and they are worried that they may end up losing their jobs to a robot. Fortunately, entrepreneur and tech expert Robert Deignan doesn’t believe that most people have anything to worry about, at least not yet anyway. While the CEO of ATS Digital Services believes that technology will be able to replace the jobs of many people around the world, he also believes that it will take a lot longer than a lot of people are expecting. During that time, Robert Deignan predicts that most people will be able to prepare themselves for the changes that will be taking place which allow them to maintain their value as a worker in a different manner.
While technology may replace certain jobs at some point, Robert Deignan knows that it also has the potential to create some as well. As the co-founder of a company that offers remote assistance with technical issues, Robert Deignan also knows that technology is able to create jobs as well. It’s all about being prepared for the changes that are coming and making sure that you have the ability to stay relevant in a changing culture and economy. While machines are capable of doing many things, the tasks that they are able to do currently are rather limited. Repetitive actions and activities are the types of jobs that could be potentially replaced in the relatively near future, but things like decision making are still difficult for most machines to be able to do as well as humans.
The Purdue University graduate believes that most jobs should be safe for the next several decades, but Robert Deignan believes that it is still important to prepare yourself for the changes that are coming in the future. The human element will always be important to most people and machines lack the flexibility that humanity has. Even though certain tasks may able to be completed by machines, many people will always prefer being able to interact with humans. Just because a machine has the potential to replace your therapist doesn’t mean that it will.
