Skills That Will Never Be Relevant

Robots are in higher potential of taking over people’s jobs. Based on the estimated uses of robots in place of human efforts, it was recorded that as of 2013 1.2 million robots were in use, and it was further increased to 1.5 million in 2014, also it’s projected to increase to about 1.9 million in 2017. In a nutshell that is the reduction of 1.9 million employable workers as of 2017 and it’s increasing daily. The used of robots in place of humans gives little hope to secure the future of the younger generations i.e. employable people in the society are out of jobs at an early age when the vigor for work is highly active, this could results to a lot of disadvantages to the societies such as:

A decrease in creativity: The brain is much more creative if it is constantly used by critical thinking, reasoning, multitasking, etc. It’s to know that robots were invented by a human through multitasking, reasoning and critical thinking for the improvement of human endeavors, activities, and operations. The taking over of robots will highly decrease creativity, and this will be difficult to preserve knowledge to younger generations, and even thou they are taught they will never be opportune to practice it, and what is the use of knowledge or skills if it is, in theory, know-how?

No compensation or incentive that can replace human knowledge than that of active engagement (use) and practice

Increase in crime rate: When robots take more space than human it will lead to a high crime rate due to unemployment. When the mind is free from any duty, it is likely to be busy pleasing the greediness of the fresh, developing and under-developing countries whose citizen leave below $1 per day may be out of law and order to feed and sustained living through crimes. 

Fast Depreciation of skills: Human creativity/skills (handworks) are not appreciated or much welcome in this system. This system reduces the value of locally handmade products i.e. when you have more unemployed people, more people will be engaged in local handmade products to earned a living (especially developing and under-developing countries), this will automatically reduce sales as they will be more available goods on sales and fewer buyers, automatically it will reduce the value of those products, commodities, and services



This is known to be vehicles that drive themselves without human efforts. This emerging technology has lower potentials in taking jobs from people, reasons been that 

Autonomous Vehicles are not industries and they create fewer jobs to the societies, also its job creation is less demanding compared to industries and other sectors of productions.

Autonomous Vehicles are considered liabilities if it brings no profits in return, and many autonomous vehicles today are considered as a liability because it’s taking more from the owner (cost of maintenance)

The majority of people can do without autonomous vehicles but not so with jobs that earned them a living. Also, autonomous vehicles are not considered to be most priorities to human needs and wants 

Developed countries have more access to other means of transportation which are considered safe, fast and prompt, making life easier than the cost of autonomous vehicles

In developing and under-developing countries where ordinary vehicles are expensive and only a few people can afford to get one, autonomous vehicles are of no use

And finally not the least, apart from autonomous vehicles be expensive, there are a lot of remote areas without landmarks making it difficult for autonomous vehicles to operate in such areas.
