With the advancement of technology, computer has declared a new era of production. The modes of production are different from those of the industrial era as those of the industrial epoch were different from the agriculture. A revolutionary change has taken place with the combination of computer and the automated self-regulating machine. The outcome of this change is a system of almost unlimited productive capacity which needs progressively less human labour. Consequently, many job positions are dying out every day in almost every workplace.
We have already entered the world where computerization causes jobs to wash away. In many manufacturing factory, a sizeable chunk of human labour has been digitized by computer. At times, when labour caries goods to transfer from one place to another in a factory. But now automated vehicles are being replaced the job of these workers. The comparative vantage of human labour over computerized system is drying up before our eyes. For example, Forbes now uses the algorithms to generate earnings announcements around a company’s stock price, and even can tailor the information to provide to particular audiences. Consequently, many journalists have been quitted from Forbes.
Although an ample number of tasks are being done efficiently and effectively rather than human effort, still there have some limitations. The automated vehicles are incapable to make ethical decisions in the same manner as human. For example, how does the automated vehicle choose comparatively less harm in the event of an accident?
To sum up, I believe that humans are intelligent enough to invent new trend in business. The more computers extinct jobs, the more new positions will be created, I think. Human being will have to prove that nothing can match his superiority.
