  • CEO pulse: Pulse on robotics: PwC
    47 of jobs in the US Certainly we believe we ll see greater collaboration between man and machine as robotics paves the way for more sophisticated augmented workforce models For example Amazon recently announced the deployment of 15 000 Kiva robots to its US fulfillment centres to make sure no time is lost in dispatching customer deliveries So what s the right blend of human and robot employees and how will organisations effectively rescale in this new world The big employment debate Do companies need to prepare for a time when they need just a handful of people blended with hundreds or thousands of machines And do employees need to panic Probably not Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee authors of the Second Machine Age argue that smart machines don t necessarily equal unemployment They posit that technology will simply create different kinds of work echoing the sentiment of Keynes on technological unemployment Interpreting the rise of robotics only in terms of direct job losses misses the point of how robotics can also create new jobs and opportunities for workers It could achieve this by handing off the traditionally low paid low skilled jobs to the bots while freeing workers to pursue alternative or more rewarding career paths There might be less demand for factory workers but more demand for machine maintenance or programmers Evolution of the customer service bot We already see that self service and automation have become business as usual for interacting with customers in sectors such as retail think self service supermarket checkouts or self service check in and bag drop at airports That s just that the start Teams of smart robots helping with these self service check ins or checkouts could be the next stage of automated customer service Take Geneva airport for example not so long ago they trialed mobile robots to direct passengers to services such as currency exchange toilets and rail connections Or Lowes the US home improvement store that s been experimenting with robots to help customers locate items in the store But could robotic customer service be more of a hindrance than a help While the bots might have the upper hand in terms of accuracy performance and resilience to cope with dull and repetitive tasks how capable are they of providing a human touch or going that extra mile both arguably the secrets to customer service success The journey from automation to augmentation To what extent though will robotics particularly with the advances in artificial intelligence also put highly skilled workers out of jobs 69 of the CEOs we spoke to disagree with that notion but surely much will depend on the extent to which thinking or cognitive tasks can be automated or delegated to robots Some tasks those that rely on intuition or leaps of faith for example will always be more suited to people Others those that are improved by speed precision or big data are best suited to machines or automation Early automation efforts focused on
