Self driving cars, your house run by a machine, or little robots vacuuming your room or mowing your lawn. many of these thing sound like they belong in the far away future yet most of these are already very much reality. Many jobs are being replaced by machines. This is a trend that has been happening for a long time. A lot of work humans used to do, don’t existed anymore simply because they became redundant as soon machines where capable op doing them.
Automation has been going on for along time  the first real automation is recorded history was in the 18th century to regulate the sails of ships. Book press art, the assembly line for cars came later but still a century ago. All increased the speed of production and lessened the amount of people needed.
Automation is a trend that has a huge impact on the  economy and for society. It makes it possible to make production process of products much faster. Robots that are putting car together at ridiculous speed 24/7. Its also safer and more reliant because there are no humans that can get injured or make a mistake.  The downside for us is that jobs are disappearing whole groups of people who’s experience aren’t needed anymore. A Few decades back and you had tons of people working on the field  now there are machines that can practically harvest the field without the need of human interference.
Why is automation such a big trend? Company’s practically don’t have a choice people are expensive machines aren’t. The big cost reduction the speed.  It gets used in marketing as well those letters you get via E-mail from companies. They don’t get send by people anymore a computer program simply sends you a mail they think is useful for you now. The trend is unavoidable if you don’t follow you can’t compete whit the rest if you want it or not.
Lifecycle even if the automation has existed for such a long time yet we are still far away from it reaching the top. The Watson computer has been released a few years ago what is the start of cognitive computers. And they have announced that they are just scratching the surface. They expect that in the next few years they will have fully function A.I. (Artifical Intelengt) what will allow a computer to do think just like a human only many many times faster. This allows machine to do more jobs. It could be that  one third of the jobs on the market will be replaced. So in the end animation is a trend that still a far away from its peak.
The future machines are just in their early state when technology progresses machines will be able to do more jobs. But what will happen with the people that lost their jobs because of automation. What will humans do to earn money when most of our work will be handled by robots? Do you think this will be a good thing or our you possibly afraid of what lies in the future?
