Bots Automation offers cobot training classes in the programming, applications and servicing of collaborative robots. These hands-on classes enable users to quickly gain the experience needed to create cobot applications and deploy cWhy you should consider a qualification in cobots and automation
Numerous studies published over the past few years have warned that the increasing use of automation and advances in artificial intelligence (AI) will have a huge impact on the job market worldwide. Estimates on the exact number of jobs that are threatened varies but almost every report agrees that automation will create a major shake-up of the way many of us work.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS), for example, recently said that 1.5 million jobs could be at risk in England alone.
The report, which was published in March, said: “It is not so much that robots are taking over, but that routine and repetitive tasks can be carried out more quickly and efficiently by an algorithm written by a human, or a machine designed for one specific function.”
The majority of these were low-skilled but automation is expected to have an impact at all levels of the job market.
While automation undoubtedly threatens some jobs however, it also opens up a wealth of opportunities. Robots can help make the workplace safer by taking over some of the more dangerous tasks currently undertaken by human workers. They can make businesses leaner and more productive and new roles are being created in the fields of automation and robotics. Someone, after all, has to design, build and maintain these robots, while cobots are designed to operate alongside human workers.
Retraining and gaining the relevant qualifications can help you to take advantage of these opportunities as the world of work rapidly changes.
