Amazing things will happen when you listen to the consumer!
Having always had a keen interest in promotional activities, advertising and marketing – this job seemed like the perfect fit. Coupled with my Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Communications, I can quite honestly say that this is exactly what I had in mind as the goal when I pursued my studies. Some of the key components of my job include owning, developing and delivering an affiliate sales strategy both locally and across the globe to drive revenue growth and meet business targets. I am also responsible for seasonal and campaign planning, partner outreach, market positioning and branding across all affiliates. I like to believe I am a people’s person and very sociable so what I enjoy the most about my job is managing the relationship with key affiliates, maximising their promotion and marketing on and off their platforms.
Robots in the workplace will increase jobs

While there are two sides to the coin, I believe that AI and automation will most definitely reduce jobs and the need for human labor. However, recent studies and research says otherwise, stating that robots will create more jobs than they eliminate by 2020... that's less than 2 years away
Do you believe robots and automation will take or create more jobs?

It depends what time frame you’re talking about. In the near future, robots will take more jobs. There’s an argument, though, to say that the value of human judgment increases as prediction skills & costs decrease, creating demand for judgement-skill based human jobs.
They most certainly will take more jobs than they create. If you automate something and fire 500 people, there’s nothing written in the fabric of the universe that will create 500 news robotics engineering jobs in that same instant.
As technology advances, so will our need for different jobs. Robots will admittedly take away lots of manual labor jobs, meaning many people will need to retrain.
I would have thought that the whole point of robots was to eliminate jobs. Yes, there will be some new jobs designing and services the robots, but surely there will be a net job loss. Perhaps I'm wrong.
Of course, technology will eliminate many jobs – it has already done so.
Honestly I don't think factory's will ever become fully automated. Why you ask
Technology is unreliable. One day you might come in with 500 working robots, the next day they could be all broken
We cannot predict the numbers of new jobs/careers that new technology will create. One study from Gartner Research states that while 1.8 million jobs will be lost by 2020, 2.3 million new ones will be created.
Those entering the workforce today will have to be adaptable.
Robots and AI will certainly replace jobs – boring, dangerous, and dirty ones mostly.
Consider this: One of the industries that have seen the greatest disruption of robotics and AI has been medicine. We now have robotic and AI tools that can perform amazingly accurate diagnoses and precise surgery. Have we lost doctors to this technology? The answer is “no.” Doctors have simply learned to leverage the new technology to provide better healthcare.

what's considered boring by you may not be by somebody else, especially if that person is a breadwinner. Robots will change the family dynamics.
It most certainly will take more jobs, robotics and machine learning have improved productivity and enhanced the economies of many nations.

According to an Oxford University analysis, close to half of all jobs will be taken over by robots in the next 25 years.
