The humanoid robot that can pilot an airplane better than a human

Posted by in categories: employment, robotics/AI, transportation

The robot’s memory is so large that it can memorise all Jeppesen navigation charts, a task that is impossible for human pilots.

Both artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics have made significant strides in recent years, meaning most human jobs could soon be overtaken by technology — on the ground and even in the skies above us.

A team of engineers and researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST) is currently developing a humanoid robot that can fly aircraft without needing to modify the cockpit.

US firms including Netflix, Amazon offer AI jobs that pay up to $900K

Posted by in categories: employment, robotics/AI

Artificial intelligence has been blamed for thousands of layoffs — but a lucky few who are trained in the red-hot technology could find lucrative jobs paying as much as $900,000 a year. Streaming service Netflix touts an opening for a machine-learning platform product manager on its website that pays anywhere from $300,000 to $900,000 per year, including base salary and bonus.

The role requires tech junkies to “define the strategic vision for MLP [Machine Learning Platform]” and measure its success. Candidates can report to an office in Los Gatos, Calif., or work remotely in the West Coast timezone.

What the Finance Industry Tells Us About the Future of AI

Posted by in categories: business, employment, finance, information science, robotics/AI


What will artificial intelligence do to industries and jobs? For a preview, look to the finance industry which has been incorporating data and algorithms for a long time, and which is always a canary in the coal mine for new technology. The experience of finance suggests that AI will transform some industries (sometimes very quickly) and that it will especially benefit larger players. But it may not leave the overall system better off.

Traditional Industries In An AI World

Posted by in categories: employment, robotics/AI

Jeff Tao is the founder, CEO and core developer of TDengine.

The emergence of ChatGPT in the public eye has brought new life to the field of artificial intelligence (AI). As AI technology enters all industries, it becomes a part of our work and lives, ushering in a new industrial revolution. While jobs will be lost, new opportunities will be created for those who work with AI.

Traditional industries, such as energy and manufacturing, are even more anxious about the AI-oriented future than those in the IT sector. They want to know how they can use AI technologies to reduce costs and increase efficiency in their industries.

Will architects really lose their jobs to AI?

Posted by in categories: employment, robotics/AI

As part of our AItopia series exploring how AI will impact architecture and design, Dezeen examines whether the technology will end up taking architects’ jobs.

In 2019, New York-based designer Sebastian Errazuriz caused a stir with his claim that 90 per cent of architects could lose their jobs to machines.

Four years on, following the emergence of several generative-AI models such as Midjourney and ChatGPT, Errazuriz is writing a book about AI’s impact on society and told Dezeen his opinion has not changed.

Charting The Roadmap To A Post-Work Society

Posted by in categories: economics, employment

However, this perspective warrants reevaluation. It is very flawed.

The seismic shift towards a post-work society does not signify an end to human productivity or purpose. Instead, it presents an opportunity to redefine ‘work’ and untangle our identities from traditional employment as we see it today.

Work has transformed over the centuries from being a matter of survival to becoming an economic imperative. The next evolutionary leap could reshape work as a channel for self-expression and fulfillment. The dawn of a post-work era could herald a liberation from simple tasks and a celebration of qualities that make us uniquely human: creativity, empathy, innovation, and complex social interaction.

A.I. is making some common side hustles more lucrative—these can pay up to $100 per hour

Posted by in categories: business, employment, food, robotics/AI

Artificial intelligence still has a long way to go before completely taking over most human jobs. But it can already make some side hustles easier and more lucrative, primarily by saving people time.

“Automation, I think, is the key to reducing your workload,” Sean Audet, a food photographer who uses generative AI tools like ChatGPT to write emails and business plans, told CNBC Make It earlier this month. “When a client first reaches out to me, I need to be able to quickly deliver a bunch of information about services and costs … in a nice, succinct and personalized way.”

US launches $8.5 billion in rebates for home energy efficiency

Posted by in categories: business, employment, energy, government

WASHINGTON, July 27 (Reuters) — The Department of Energy said on Thursday it is accepting applications from states and territories for $8.5 billion in rebate programs for upgrades in U.S. homes that aim to lower energy bills and increase energy efficiency.

The rebates for items including insulation, heat pumps, and efficient appliances will be available to consumers after states and territories apply for and get funds from the department. The two rebate programs were funded by President Joe Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act that fellow Democrats in Congress passed last year without a single Republican vote.

The rebate programs will save up to $1 billion a year in energy costs and support about 50,000 jobs in construction, manufacturing and other businesses, the department said.
