{epub pdf} The Globotics Upheaval: Globalization, Robotics, and the Future of WorkAutor Richard Baldwin – Avengersinfinitywarfullmovie.de

At the root of inequality, unemployment, and populism are radical changes in the world economy Digital technology is allowing talented foreigners to telecommute into our workplaces and compete for service and professional jobs Instant machine translation is melting language barriers, so the ranks of these tele migrants will soon include almost every educated person in the world Computing power is dissolving humans monopoly on thinking, enabling AI trained computers to compete for many of the same white collar jobs The combination of globalization and robotics is creating the globotics upheaval, and it threatens the very foundations of the liberal welfare stateRichard Baldwin, one of the world s leading globalization experts, argues that the inhuman speed of this transformation threatens to overwhelm our capacity to adapt From computers in the office to automatic ordering systems in restaurants, we are familiar with the how digital technologies offer convenience while also eliminating jobs Globotics will disrupt the lives of millions of white collar workers much faster than automation, industrialization, and globalization disrupted the lives of factory workers in previous centuries The result will be a backlash Professional, white collar, and service workers will agitate for a slowing of the unprecedented pace of disruption, as factory workers have done in years past Baldwin argues that the globotics upheaval will be countered in the short run by shelter ism government policies that shelter some service jobs from tele migrants and thinking computers In the long run, people will work in human jobs activities that require real people to use the uniquely human ability of independent thought and this will strengthen bonds in local communities Offering effective strategies such as focusing on the social value of work, The Globotics Upheaval will help people prepare for the oncoming wave of an advanced robotic workforce

    Richard Baldwin versteht eindringlich die zwei wichtigsten Dinge der Digitalisierung herauszuarbeiten Erstens warum historische Vergleiche hinken Zweitens enth llt er das Wesen der Digitalisierung mit ihrer exponentiellen Steigerung In dem Zusammenhang macht er auch deutlich warum bisherige Gesch ftsmodelle sich nicht adaptieren lassen Ich kann das Buch nur jedem empfehlen der unter Digitalisierung mehr verstehen will als die Cloud.

    I ve read a lot of books and articles on robotics, AI etc., but Richard Baldwin s The Globotics Upheaval Globalization, Robotics and the Future of Work is different from others To my knowledge it is the first one that combines globalization with technology Remote intelligence a term coined by Baldwin makes one thing very clear The impact of technology on our lives, work and societies is unstoppable by border control and walls While reading through it, it reminded me of the Ming Dynasty in China, when the ancient emperor tried to suppress any kind of global competition and exchange of innovations with other countries, what was the beginning of the descent of a once leading nation Better to have a strategy to reap the fruits so that as many people can benefit from it as possible That would also be a good remedy globotics upheavals and new shelterism that already started to unfold from gaining momentum While reading Baldwin s last two chapters on a human, local future and preparing for new jobs I thought of Richard Freeman s suggestion of Employee and Citizen Ownership of Business Capital in the Age of AI Robots The future is ours Let s make the most out of it Let s use innovations to strengthen our open society Karl Popper.

    This books was so unbelievably frustrating to read for two reasons Firstly the quality of Baldwin s English is so bad, it made me question his credentials Points are made inarticulately e.g Since the head workers were already better off than the hand workers, sic a technology which favored brains over brawn favored the few were already favored, while disfavoring the many who weren t WHAT He also tries to sound profound with statements like or was 2016 another turning point in history that failed to turn.Secondly his arguments are oversimplified, careless, and just lazy, bordering on being non sequiturs His analysis of the the Trump and Brexit votes are hugely over simplified, in a nutshell saying that it was down to uneducated people disaffected by technological changes and inadequate government policy in smoothing out disruption to labour markets totally ignoring structural issues with the EU e.g single currency issues and the lack of monetary policy sovereignty of member states , and its anti competitive policies.He then jumps from this poorly worded spiel to the conclusion Technology did it WTF You wouldn t get away with this at degree level The one useful thing this book does is present cases of technological disruption in the workplace.

    Nice insight and description of the various technology disruptions and subsequent industrial revolutions.AI is still in an embryonic stage with noticeable developments as from 2016 yet a highlighted table still shows that it will take 50 years till robots replce humans I would be 100 by then

    This book made me think hard about how we embrace change, especially that which will decimate the jobs that we hold dear.
