Machines Are Rising

It is coming closer: the rise of machines.

Lower-paying jobs in meatpacking and agriculture are increasingly at risk from automation as the pandemic hastens robot development. U.S. meatpacking giant Tyson Foods is rapidly embracing robotics to debone livestock and slice up chickens following factory outbreaks that killed 91 workers, infected 17,300 and threatened meat supplies. In Europe, engineers from Fieldwork Robotics are working with German tech giant Bosch to perfect a machine with flexible arms to compete with humans to pick fruit. A study from Oxford Economics predicted robots could take over 20 million manufacturing jobs by 2030.
