“Technology progress does grow the economy and create wealth, but there is no economic law that says everyone will benefit”. This idea or conclussion is commonly read in many articles that call robotics and technology progress into question, because of its assumed trend of dramatically job reduction.

So.. is technology really leading in a net reduction of employment opportunities? Or are we facing a deep change in the labour market participation?June 12, 2017 at 3:43 pm #12209E. R.Participant
They are if you just consider the plant operators they are being replaced. What it is more interesting is the impact of new collaborative robots in the engineering services. If industrial robots were being implemented with an intensive support for integration, cobots can be set up just with the technical personnel of the plant. This gives a lot of opportunities for people to learn and protect internal resources that have a better role. In fact I have had discussions with Auto companies hiring people to work with cobots.
