7 Industries That Will Be Taken Over by AI and Robots - Will any of these affect Thailand?

Recommended Posts

https://datafloq.com/read/7-industries-taken-over-ai-robots/4128

 

The ones on the forefront according to the article are:

 

  1. Transportation
  2. Manufacturing
  3. Shipping/Packing
  4. Customer Service
  5. Finance
  6. Healthcare
  7. Agriculture

 

Do you guys think Thailand will be affected by this?

 

I think if there won't be many direct effects due to low need for job replacing automation, effects may still be felt particularly from China's implementation of these technologies. Whether good or bad I don't know.

Well if AI can do a better job, let them.

I hope you don't have children. It is their children that will suffer when all jobs can be done by machines.

Did you know that in the US, something like 50% of all jobs 100 yrs ago was in agriculture.  Now it's less than 1%, yet that industry is much more productive now than it was then.  That's called progress.  Think Star Trek, humans will be allowed to do what they want to do instead of what they have to do.  Nevermind my own kids, it makes me wish I was young again.

Here is just one example.  This is the check in at the airport in Singapore. You insert your passport.  The machines camera verifies it is you through facial recognition.  The passport is used to find your flight which you confirm.  The machine then prints your boarding pass and luggage tags.  You place luggage on conveyor and it weighs your luggage.  Not a single human until you get to security.

Just think about it, Thailand becoming a AI country. At the moment 4 Thais are employed to do the same work as one "farang". Imagine the unemployment numbers, not going to happen in my lifetime.

I agree with most of the comments above. 

 

AI is a fad... a lot of talking and not much to show. 

 

Self-driving cars? Still nowhere to be seen, and not for anytime soon. 

 

The problem at the very base of AI is that those who try to make it work don't understand what is intelligence. 

 

They believe that human behavior can be translated into algorithms, as a suite of choices... leaving aside a whole lot of inputs that can never be "understood" by a computer. 

 

Agriculture... how does a robot taste a fruit to decide if it is ripe? 

 

Transportation... how does a robot react being stuck behind a tractor, that should not be on the road in the first place, when there is a long yellow line forbidding to overtake it? 

 

Finance... it is already almost fully automated... more than 80% of the trading... algorithms have been designed to be bullish, so they buy, ignoring all the historical precedents, which they don't know anything about, until this is all going to blow up sky high... 

 

Customer service... this has long disappeared, probably because of these stupid answering machines... 

 

I am not worried about artificial intelligence taking over, but rather about human intelligence tanking...
