The labor market, althought not at first sight , is expanding with new jobs. This applies in particular professions that are related to modern technologies- their production, but also control. In the past people chose one job and developed it throughout their lives. However, in connection with artificial intelligence, robots and automation, there are often fears that people may lose their jobs and will be replaced by machines.
According to an Oxford study, up to 47 % of current jobs could be automated in the next 10 years. About 15% of existing positions will disappear, another 32 % will change radically and new technologies will create completely new jobs that do not exist today.
With an emphasis on productivity and new tracking technologies, people will need help improving their productivity. With coming of automated processes they will need help also with following the rules of proper posture where standing or sitting , when compiling a work schedule or carrer guidance.
Robots controller and operator of drons
Driverless cars should be 100% autonomous and will completely eliminate people from driving. But it does not apply to all robots. Some are able to drive on their own, but they are still supervised by people. Such a person does not have to be physically located in the same place (even in the same country) as the robot he is supervising.
Operators who monitor each delivery van( and can monitor 100 robots simultaneuosly) can take command of them remotely. The situation will be similar for drones , which will include monitoring the entire fleet of drones while performing tasks. Only when a certain efficiency benchmark is reached is it likely that robots will be able to carry out their missions completely independently. Until this happens, this work will be quite common for humans.
The ability to communicate has always been important. As machines become more and more common, the importance of this skill will continue to grow. It´s a great example of how machines and people can interact in the workplace. Of course, it will be necessary to be able to deal with both factors – humans and machines.

As the example of the robots controller shows, there are still many ways in which people have to intervene in the process of creating machines that act intelligently.

The better the artificial intelligence, the higher the requirements for the role of such an assistant.
