The debate about robots replacing human labor has been raging for years, and it's no surprise that electricians are among those who are concerned about their job security. But according to experts, electricians have nothing to worry about. While robots can automate many tasks, they are not yet capable of replacing the unique challenges that electricians face in different environments. Michael Jones, professor of economics at the University of Cincinnati, and consulting firm McKinsey have both come to the same conclusion: electricians are unlikely to be replaced by robots.
This is because robots are not yet able to solve the complex problems that electricians face in their work. Robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) have made great strides in the past decade, but when it comes to electrical work, robots still lack the capacity for creativity, planning and the ability to operate in all environments. This means that when a fault is detected, components must still be replaced or repaired by an electrician. Experts have found that while almost all jobs involve tasks that robots could learn to perform, only 5% of jobs can be completely replaced by technology.
This means that electricians, plumbers, roofers, welders and other tradespeople can rest assured that their jobs are safe for now. The same goes for other professions such as haters and charcoal extractors. While robots can do a better job than humans in some areas, such as fulfilling orders for fast food, they still lack the capacity to replace humans in certain tasks. This is evidenced by the example of Goldman Sachs, which replaced nearly 600 stock traders with software and 200 computer programmers.
While this was a drastic change in the labor market, it did not replace all of the traders' jobs - some were still needed to manage the software.In conclusion, electricians should not worry about being replaced by robots anytime soon. As long as electricians continue to hone their skills and stay up-to-date on new technologies, they should have no problem finding work.
