labor shortage drives artificial intelligence? 1s this class of wage earners OK

A few days ago, 1 met an investor who focused on the field of artificial intelligence. He incubated and invested in a number of artificial intelligence start-ups, and completed several rounds of financing

when it comes to why he is optimistic about this field, his logic is simple and crude: now China’s labor cost is too high, which is forcing the development of science and technology, and using artificial intelligence technology to reduce labor costs. The higher the labor cost, the more prosperous the A1 industry will be

it sounds absurd at first, but it makes sense to think about it carefully. Although A1 is still called A1 by many people, the labor shortage faced by Southern factories and the use of a large number of robots have shown the problem

a news that is widely spread today is that the Daily Express Shanghai Pudong Jianye station started 20 days after the Spring Festival, but only three of the 10 couriers returned to their posts, resulting in a large number of integrable ware

the same thing happened in Shentong. Morning News reported that Shentong express Luojing company usually has more than 120 couriers, and nearly 40 couriers have not returned to their posts after the Spring Festival this year. The normal operation of the network requires 12 cart drivers, and now only 7 of them return to their posts

“this year, the loss of couriers after the year is double that of previous years.” Shentong express Luojing company said

in Beijing, many industries also feel this kind of pressure. Both express delivery and take out are faced with a shortage of people, which even leads to a substantial increase in delivery costs. On the one hand, it has something to do with restricting the floating population; on the other hand, it is because of the dissatisfaction with the income that the migrant workers are speeding up their return to the third and fourth tier

in the south, the labor shortage in Dongguan and Shenzhen has lasted for many years. According to the 21st century economic report, the “post-60s” and “post-90s” migrant workers are no longer willing to work in the province, which directly leads to the lack of skilled workers in the eastern coastal areas< According to the data of the National Bureau of statistics, from the end of 2012 to the end of 2015, the growth rate of migrant workers decreased year by year, with the growth rates of 3.0%, 1.7%, 1.3% and 0.4% respectively a migrant worker who once worked in Shunde, Guangdong Province, gave his definition of “good job”: the salary is no less than 8000 yuan, including food and housing, and a day and a half off every week this kind of revenue expectation is hard to meet for general manufacturing enterprises and even the service industry, which can only urge enterprises to change the cost structure a large number of call centers begin to introduce voice robots to communicate with customers; Factories began to reduce the use of labor, using robots to work, and through the 1nternet of things for machine maintenance and data acquisition; Artificial intelligence began to replace stenographers, doctors and so on especially in logistics and express delivery, a labor-intensive industry, it is necessary to combine with artificial intelligence. 1t is a good thing to liberate human beings from this simple handling work you see, Amazon and JD are combining with technology in every link from storage to distribution, and UAV distribution is not impossible in the future with A1 coming, what should humans do at least now we don’t have to worry too much about the fact that wage earners can’t find jobs. According to the data, in 2016, 71000 migrant workers returned to their hometown and set up 18000 enterprises, with an output value of 14.05 billion yuan you see, there are also innovation and entrepreneurship, and there are more than 20 provinces with 45 trillion fixed asset investment. This session of wage earners is not good. What about the next
