Robert Deignan is the Chief Executive Officer and helped in the establishment of ATS Digital Services. ATS Digital Services was founded in August 2011. Prior to joining ATS Digital Services, Deignan worked at iS3 as the Executive Deputy President. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management accredited to the University of Purdue. He graduated from the University of Purdue in 1995. The future of innovative technology is expected to involve a percentage increase in automation in all industries. Automation is expected to have a large impact that will affect a lot of people, inclusive of technology experts such as Robert Deignan.
This however, does not conclude that technology experts and researchers of artificial intelligence have not disclosed their predictions on automation in the near future economy. Future of Humanity Institute, a branch of Oxford University, published a report that talks of how long it will take for automation to compromise employee’s jobs in various industries. Some tasks that may end up being taken over by automation range from automation labor to writing by successful authors. This era of automation is not yet expected for another century as well as research for artificial intelligence.
Despite the negativity of automation replacing human jobs with artificial intelligence machines, Deignan gives hope for those threatened by the rise of automation. Anxiety about automation can be replaced with a personal positivity of responding to automation positively. Positive thinking of collaborating to work in partnership with technology may reduce misplaced automation. Researchers disclose that in 120 years to come, artificial intelligence machines are expected to have a fifty percent rate of wiping human jobs.
Currently, artificial intelligence machines are limited to perform a small number of tasks. Deignan states that most people prefer working hand in hand with fellow humans as opposed to collaborating with artificial intelligence machines. Oxford university’s report shows a variety of tasks that automation will be overtaken from humans. These include social workers, health care social workers, audiologists, recreational therapy and occupational therapy. The report positively comments of most people being able to keep their jobs in the future.
