Post War Automation Era
The post-war era of automation has brought about significant changes in the world of technology. Today, human interaction is a key factor in the success of any type of business. Machines have taken the place of men in all walks of life. Machines are now found in every aspect of our lives from education and healthcare to finance and tourism. Machines are also used for their assistance in the home such as washing machines, vacuum cleaners, and air conditioning.
Although machines are extremely helpful in day-to-day tasks, there are times when their presence can disrupt the flow of business. With the advent of automation, the invention and development of new processes have become faster and much more widespread. It has now reached a point where machine automation is seen as replacing humans in almost every sphere of human endeavor.
Business owners should carefully consider the consequences of machine automation on their business. Automated systems have replaced people in every sphere of business but do we want that to happen also for the area of customer care? Human contact and interaction with customers are essential in making a good impression on them. Business processes now allow machines to interact with customers and in doing so they produce the exact result that was intended by the owner of the business.
Automation has eliminated much of the manual work that was once required to do things properly. The invention of the machine resulted in many different types of automation. However, these forms do not always go hand-in-hand with each other. Some forms of automation have created chaos and uncertainty in a business, while others help create order and stability.
Businesses must still make the decision whether or not to fully automate their businesses. A company can completely automate their system by fully replacing all human employees with machines. Alternatively, an owner can fully automate their system through automation technology without completely losing control of the human element. In fact, business owners can set parameters within their systems that will only allow machines to perform certain tasks. They can control what machines can and cannot do to ensure that human interaction is still needed.
Today’s society is deeply ambivalent about artificial intelligence and automation. The fear of Artificial Intelligent computer programs is also fueling much of the confusion. Many people are afraid that the introduction of Artificial Intelligence will lead to the creation of something superior and possibly dangerous. However, many other people fear that automation will only lead to more efficient and cheaper systems that will result in less work overall. Some even fear that robots will take over the world by replacing humans in all aspects of society. There is some truth to all of these fears, but the introduction of new technology and automation will benefit the human race in more ways than one
