Robots have advantages and disadvantages for workers. On March 12, the latest research report pointed out that robots are entering all walks of life. While improving labor productivity and promoting economic growth, robots will not affect our employment to a large extent

georggraetz, a researcher at uppsalauniversity in Sweden, and guymichaels, a researcher at londonschoolofeconomics, surveyed the use of robots in 17 countries. They reported this week that introducing robots into the workplace can promote economic growth by 0 Through this production, this is a topic of contention among hundreds of schools of thought. It can expand by 37%, and labor productivity can also increase by the same percentage

more importantly, the introduction of robots has no significant impact on the overall working hours, but will improve work efficiency, thereby increasing the average wage level. Gretz said in an interview: robots have a positive impact on productivity, which will lead to an increase in corporate profits, and workers will share part of the profits to a certain extent

nevertheless, the impact of robots is not all positive. The report said that although the impact on the overall employment market is small, it will still have a negative impact on the employment of low-level skilled workers and some intermediate skilled workers

this is consistent with some previous relevant reports. Oxford University economists Carl benediktfrey and Michael Osborne said in a report last month that 47% of employees in the United States face a higher risk of being replaced by automation

Gretz and Michael also said in the report that the popularity of robots will not cause polarization in the labor market: that is, it will have a greater impact on low-level technicians, while the impact on intermediate technicians is less. Gretz and Michael believe that the impact of robots on productivity is equivalent to the contribution of British steam engine technology at the end of the 19th century

from 1993 to 2007, the servo valve investigated in the report can be divided into three types: single-stage, double-stage or three-stage. The use of robots in 17 countries increased by 150%, and the main application fields include automobile assembly and agricultural harvesting. By country, robots are the most popular in Germany, Denmark and Italy. By industry, the transportation, chemical and metallurgical industries are the most widely used robots

according to the report, robots still have room for further development. The London Centre for economic policy research released a report earlier this week that the price of robots in six industrial countries fell by 50% from 1990 to 2005. Gretz and Michael said that the contribution of robots to economic development will be huge

Terry Gou, President of Hon Hai group, told the media last month that Hon Hai plans to automate 70% of its production lines within three years. Gou said that robots will replace workers and improve production efficiency. At present, Hon Hai has about 1million employees in mainland China
