When Will Artificial Intelligence Replace Your Job?

- By 2020 AI could replace the current World Poker Champion. - Studies estimate machines will write a top 40 pop song, run all telephone banking and build any Lego set within a decade. - By the centurys halfway point, AI will have written a New York Times Bestseller. - The research is revealed shortly after Google Duplexs big unveiling.

Since the very first computer program, humans have been consumed with the concept of artificial intelligence - the idea that one day machines can think, react and interact with us in a distinctly lifelike manner. The truth is, were closer than we think.


Charting the evolution of artificial intelligence, AI vs Humanity allows you to see how fast technology has progressed - and when the worlds foremost scientists think your job will be replaced!

The timeline gives a sense of the huge potential of AI and is released shortly after Google unveiled Google Duplex - an Android focused tool using the Google Assistant voice that can make calls on your behalf - from booking a restaurant table to hair appointment! Duplex has already gained notoriety largely for utilising speech disfluency - an interruption of speech such as "uh-huhs" that mimics real life dialogue.

Following Googles AI Conference it is clear that AI is set to increase its world dominance even further, but can we have too much of a good thing? Moreover, what will be the impact of AI on labour-based jobs.

Working in finance? By 2022, telephone bankers could find themselves out of a job to make way for robotic replacements. Truck drivers, meanwhile, will need to brush up their CVs by 2027 when truck driving will become fully automated. Most importantly, would you trust a robot to remove your appendix? By 2054 we could see robots operating on humans.

Among the sectors covered are:
-Manual Labour
-Research
-Medical Science
-Banking
-Writing
-Retail Sales
-Transport
-Music
-Poker
-Lego Assembly

Not only that, but the visually-interactive piece traces an educationally-detailed history of machine intelligence, right from the birth of AI to the present day. Want to know exactly when and how the breakthroughs in artificial learning and interaction came to be? Its all here.

Topics covered include:

-The worlds first "robotic person"
-Deep Blues chess triumph
-Googles speech recognition
-Self-driving cars
-Heart disease measurements

With the research into artificial intelligence increasing day by day, there has never been a better time to get to grips with the future of AI - its past, present and fast-approaching future.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
