GENERATION OF AUTOMATION: IS YOUR JOB IN DANGER?

Humanity has made great strides in the technical world and, as of late, those strides have begun affecting the livelihood of people directly. Technology, (specifically A.I.) has seen vast advancements in recent years, so much so that for some industries the threat of redundancy is becoming ever more real.

According to original research from MoneySuperMarket, driverless vehicles are growing in capability and becoming more popular among firms that traditionally employ large numbers of drivers. Such a transition could trigger large-scale redundancies by as early as 2020. But, which jobs are in danger of being automated first?

Is Your Job At Risk?

To date in the UK, many motoring jobs have already fallen victim to automation – and as many as 1.2 million face a 67% or higher probability of their jobs being automated – representing up to £23.9 billion in annual salaries.

Among professional drivers, only driving instructors have little to fear, with the 29,000 employed in the UK having only a 13% chance of replacement with a machine. However, there are many other driving oriented jobs that could be in danger of being automated such as:
1. Food delivery drivers – The takeaway delivery industry is likely to see replacements across the board, with a 98% chance of automation.
2. Waste disposal workers – Waste collectors face a 93% likelihood of having their roles replaced by a machine. Volvo showcased a prototype bin lorry that uses drones to identify nearby bins, although this wouldn’t completely replace the need for human workers.
3. Taxi drivers – As with bus drivers, there have been moves to automate private transport services. Notably, Addison Lee has stated that the company intends to have automated vehicles deployed in London by 2021. In Tokyo, meanwhile, an autonomous taxi service began operation in August, transporting passengers along a set route.
Even though, driverless technology advances with each passing year, there are some jobs in emergency services, that aren’t at high risk of being fully automated. Services such as, ambulances, police and the fire department are at less risk of being fully replaced due to requiring additional skills.

Tom Flack, Editor-in-Chief at MoneySuperMarket, commented:

“Automation will bring massive changes across the whole of society and those who drive for a living may be among the first to feel its effects. Tests of driverless vehicles are well-advanced and are soon to be on the roads – with future positions in commercial usage already identified.
“If businesses see an opportunity to save money by making drivers redundant, they are likely to grab it – that’s the nature of competition. We can only hope that automation brings with it fresh employment opportunities for those whose existing roles disappear.”

TIPS TO BECOME A BETTER DRIVER

With more than 250 million vehicles on the road in the USA alone, there is a ton of traffic. Most people will drive at least once a day. With only arbitrary lines and lights keeping us in the right lanes and letting us know where to go, it is largely up to the skills and knowledge of drivers to keep everything safe and efficient.

Unfortunately, it is common for people to overestimate their driving skills. In reality, a large portion of us are pretty bad drivers. With that in mind, this article is going to look at a few different tips to become a better driver.

Scan Ahead and Be More Aware

When many people drive, they simply look at the car in front of them and drive based on what that person does. However, this means people often don’t have any idea what is taking place further down the road. Instead of starting right in front of you, you should try looking about 10-12 seconds down the road.

This will help give you more time to see and prepare for potential roadblocks or accidents. In addition to looking ahead, you need to be more situationally aware of things that are happening around you. You need to know how much space you have around your car, how other cars are behaving, and what’s taking place in your blind spots.

Brush up on Skills and Knowledge

For many of us, we haven’t really honed our driving skills since we took our introductory drivers tests when we were a teenager. This means most of us have likely forgotten important rules of the road. As a result, we should be sure to frequently brush up on our knowledge and practice important skills from time to time.

This can be done a few different ways. You could potentially take a driver training course or just use a helpful online resource to help you learn and then go driving and apply what you have learned. If you are interested in using an online resource to brush up on your skills, be sure to check out this link: The Ultimate Guide for Drivers! DMV & More | DrivingGuide.com

Keep Your Mirrors Adjusted

Your side and rear-view mirrors are the most important aspects of your vehicle in keeping you safe. While most people will position their side mirrors so they can see the edge of their car, that isn’t really necessary as your rear-view should have that covered. Instead, these side mirrors should be used to illuminate as many of your blind spots as possible.

While completely eliminating blind spots just isn’t possible, you can greatly reduce them by positioning your side and rear-view mirrors correctly. Of course, in addition to positioning them well, you should also be sure to use them and check them frequently.

Remove or Minimize Distractions

With the advancements in technology and the fact that almost everyone has a cell phone in their pocket, distracted driving is on the rise. While these technologies help us in so many ways, they are also one of the leading causes of car accidents. In fact, experts believe that cell phone usage while driving leads to over 1.5 million crashes every year.

These types of accidents are nearly 100% preventable and part of being a good driver is reducing these distractions. You should keep your phone tucked away, keep your eyes on the road, and your hands on the steering wheel at all times.

Hopefully the tips included in this article can help you become a better driver and keep yourself (and the other drivers around you) safe.

TRIGGER WARNING: New Kavanaugh Video

***WARNING: This video is a dramatization of alleged events. It contains violent images that may be disturbing to some viewers. Caution is strongly advised.***

WATCH THE AGENDA PROJECT’S NEW VIDEO: TRIGGER WARNING

The Agenda Project released a new video featuring a dramatization of the alleged attempted rape several years ago by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as described by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. As the text above warns, the footage may be disturbing for some. This is a delicate subject matter for many, but with the future of our nation at stake, we felt this video was an important one to make. If you feel up to it, we encourage you to watch, then act.

The video ends by providing the number to the US Senate switchboard. If you are as outraged as we are that a man credibly accused of attempted rape is being considered for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, please take a minute to call your Senators and demand that they vote against confirming Kavanaugh.

The video was released in conjunction with a piece written by Agenda Project Founder Erica Payne explaining the rationale behind putting out such potentially disturbing footage. In it, she writes:

“Senator Dean Heller called it “a little hiccup.” For Senator Lindsay Graham, it was “a smear.” The Honorable Orrin Hatch said, “This woman, whoever she is, is mixed up.” The X chromosome knows exactly what the Y chromosome means when it says things like that. It means we are nothing. Our claims to our bodies are NOTHING. Like a little hiccup, we will pass.

So it’s come to this. To showing them – showing as many men who have and would do this, and the ones who dismiss it when it’s done – what we’re actually talking about here.”

For more information on why we felt this video was so important for us to release, you can read more in the rest of her article HERE
