Mechanization is the future

Mechanization is the future
When I was a girl, we regularly go to the province to visit my grandparents. I was used to seeing farmers using the plow pulled by a carabao that’s why I was amazed when I first saw a tractor that was plowing the field. My grandfather said that where the job is done by 10 people in 10 days, that same job can be done by the tractor in one day. For a girl born and raised in the city, that scene of the tractor did not matter much. But when I got older, I got to know of the mechanization not only in the farm but also in factories. The Toyota plant in Japan was using robots to bake the car’s body as a method of painting. That job couldn’t be handled by humans. In some other factories, automation is also the standard where before it was only the conveyor belt that we see. Is mechanization good for us? I’d say yes although the side effect is the fast pace of progress that contributes to the fast growing population that can lead to congestion.


That is true there are jobs that a human cannot do but a machine can resolve it much faster. Mechanization is the future, and I am glad there are people who invent a lot of machines that can resolve our jobs, it is easier to use the mechanized machine and we save a lot of time and money. Evolution is on the wave and nothing can stop it, all we can do is to keep up with it.

I was amused when I first saw a documentation of an American farm. The farmer was using all kinds of machines and he was the only one doing the work in his farm. Over here, a small farm is planted by 10 people and tended by only 1 during the growing of the crops. When harvest time comes there are 10 people again who will do the harvesting. That’s a lot of hands needed because we have no machines here.

I think this is true not only for factory workers but most other jobs as well. As better technology arises, there is less need for human labor. I know it can be scary for some, but that's why we all have to keep our eyes and our minds towards the future. I've seen a few videos on some fast food restaurants in the US starting to experiment with replacing cashiers with touchscreens and in Japan, a lot of restaurants have already been doing something similar for years. However, Japan still seems to be doing okay, so maybe we should take notes on how they are balancing it.

In some ways it is sad for me to say that mechanization and automation is definitely the direction our future is heading in. We live in a capitalist society and everything is about saving money, increasing efficiency and maximizing profit, regardless of the fact that you're putting thousands of people out of work. As technology advances, soon we'll find that more and more jobs will be replaced by robots, even jobs in the fast food industry and such. And as advances are made in the field of artificial intelligence, who knows what other jobs robots are going to be replacing. Very dystopian.

A lot of things are automated. A lot of thing where human labor was required is now being replaced. So you can see that people have to adopt. And they have to change as the life goes on. Because that seems to be way for the future. People still want some assurance for their work. I think mechanical things may change the way we are living today. So that has to be considered while carrying out tasks.

I believe in this yes. Studies have already pointed out that in the future nearly 70% if the jobs we know today will be replaced by automation. In that sense, professionals will either have to adapt themselves to this new influx of machines or work in different areas

It's starting to feel like the only real jobs left will be for those who can create, repair, and maintain machines. Automation will take over a lot of jobs. While I'm sure this will eventually provide great savings for many companies, I have a question for them. If all the jobs are gone, who is going to have the means to purchase their goods and services? Hmmm.... something to think about.

Yes, it goes beyond mechanization though. I think Aritificial Intelligence in the way of the future, and you will see more and more jobs that used to be done by human beings being done by robots. This is simply one of the things that is most bound to happen in the rest of this century and the next.

Machanization is the future. However, machanization is not possible every where. For example, if you asre climbing Everest, you need a human porter. You cannot have cars or even animals to carry loads to the Everest. I am a farmer, when I was a child we used ox pulled plow. These days we use tractors. However, we sill plant rice manually. In few years, we may replace manual planting with machine planting.

I think to some extent it needs to be properly controlled too. You have to understand that some of the time people needs to learn from the experience. And they need to make things a bit better in that case. I have learned that mechanization can be properly fixed if we handle it the right way.

It is through mechanization that we can get to produce large food items that can be able to feed the world. Imean with the increasing population of the world, it is right that we have an increase in the food production and the only way we can achieve that is by making sure we plant enough food crops that can be used to feed the communities that we live in. Mechanication is the way forward for agricultural production.

Certainly, mechanized farming is the way to go.The world's population is becoming overwhelming and food scarcity is on the increase and the only way out is commercial or mechanized farming so that enough food would be able to produce that would be able enough to reach everyone or else the might be famine in land sooner than we think.

Mechanization is the future for every country that wants to progress and develop faster. Mechanization makes farm work easier and faster and it makes the production of goods in factories more faster and quicker than just using manual labour.

Well mechanization has helped a lot to humans, it surely can save a lot of time and effort. But also machines need humans to work, because they don't have conscience of what they're doing, they're just receiving and executing orders. So, machines are and will be part of our future, but in a way or another will always need humans to work properly. Big industries and big masses of people, required machines to achieve the goal of production/demand/ consume, and that's what has make us come this far on modern era. To make it short, we are now in need of machines to live the life we are used to right now, and if we need them now we will keep needing them, so yeah they're our future too.

I think it has more advantages than disadvantages. Without automation i think efficiency and productivity will still be at the lowest state, this has a great effect specially on industrial countries. In the other hand automation has given us a great economy with low job opportunities.

Mechanization are good in terms of doing manual labor. It will increase the production rates. Plus less cases of mishandling of machines that results to physical injuries or deaths. But I am afraid that it will put out many of work.
