DURBAN (AP) When it comes to automation, the U.S. is a lot like Europe, says Michael J. Sullivan, a professor at the University of Maryland and author of “Automation: The Hidden Costs of Big Data and Big Data-Based Operations.”
“You can automate a lot of different things in the U, but there’s a lot more automation going on than Europe,” Sullivan says.
“And you have to make sure that the people doing it have a sense of responsibility for the outcome.”
When it comes down to it, automation is often more efficient than humans.
The United States is the world’s top manufacturing hub, with some of the world`s most advanced factories.
But there are limits to how much automation can be applied.
“We`re not there yet, but we`re definitely getting closer,” Sullivan said.
In the past two decades, U.s. companies have transformed the way they run their operations from a factory to a company.
Automation has expanded the range of capabilities available to workers, and it has enabled companies to take advantage of emerging technology.
But it has also raised concerns that it can be abused and cause unnecessary harm.
In recent years, automation has grown in popularity in the United States.
In the last five years, its share of the work force has risen from 16 percent in 2000 to 20 percent today.
In other words, there are more Americans working in manufacturing today than in the 1980s.
And automation has led to more job losses.
