IoT Developments and its Effects on the Job Market

first_imgTags:#Internet of Things#Job Hunt What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … How Data Analytics Can Save Lives Nida Shahid Follow the Puck AI: How it’s Impacting Surveillance Data Storage Related Posts We are all, in one way or another, the offspring of the technological era. We depend on our jobs for our very livelihood. Moreover, the fear of losing our jobs due to the continuous advancements in technology grips a great many people. With the continuous evolution in the field of IoT (Internet of Things), where more devices are going online every day. Hence the need for human interference is reducing in various departments.Whereas, at the very same instance, breakthroughs are creating more positions of employment all around the world. Let us consider some of the most significant pros and cons IoT might have on the job market. Moreover, how organizations and individuals for the benefit of the entire society are effectively tackling various situations.IoT enabled Machines Taking over our tasksUndoubtedly, the primary objective behind the rapid application of IoT in our daily routines is to automate tasks and procedures. A simple machine can carry out the functions of multiple laborers; a flying drone can scan a large area in a very short period which might’ve taken days to cover by humans. Comprehensive security systems have taken over the tasks of guards protecting various premises, and this list of instances where machines are taking over the workload is endless.What is happening as a result of all this automation? Lesser human involvements, of course! Which results in lower job opportunities. However true is that machines aren’t yet capable of dictating a specific sphere of life entirely. Human involvement is, and always will be, integral, since AI does not possess the power to think spontaneously and tentatively like a human mind, yet.IoT Advancements leading to new opportunitiesThe industrial revolution came as the dawn of a new day. However expected, this change (although this was nothing short of a revolution) instilled a fear of unemployment among masses. However, it opened many unexplored avenues of employment, to their relief. Employment opportunities opened in areas such as railroad management, fuel related sectors, and track maintenance, etc.Advancements in science and technology have given rise to the digital world of the internet. Just turn on your smart device, connect it with the internet, and you would be able to browse through countless jobs that you can opt from, even, from home. Marketers, Bloggers, Chefs, Life Style trainers, and many more are using these new opportunities to make a decent living for their households.Companies are opening up new and unique designations related to IoT management all over the world, fulfilling the need for trained IoT professionals to run the machinery. In short, humankind and its skill set are evolving with the advancement in technology. Greater automation replaces the need for the workforce in lower tiers and opens up avenues for smarter brains on top of the hierarchy.  Businesses will undoubtedly benefit from the continuous evolution of IoT since their processes became lag-free; everything becomes transparent and more centralized for better control and efficiency.Factors related to privacyNew advancement techniques are being employed to protect the privacy of employees and organizations as a whole since massive chunks of data are uploaded on servers, but a potential intruder can also attempt to get inside of one of these servers and steal valuable information. That could result in the loss of millions of dollars for major corporations.Individual quality is also compromised with the advancements in IoT. Companies now keep track of the various activities of their employees while they are working inside an office environment and even after they have left the premises. We know that a wide variety of companies like Facebook, Google, etc. monitor our activities over the internet and sell them to companies so they can tailor and focus their ads according to the needs and wants of individual consumers. But this again is pretty debatable, and many consider this as an intrusion of privacy.Measures to take in the education departmentIoT will have a significant effect on the type and quality of education delivered in schools and universities. While choosing a profession, it is of utmost importance that counselors help their students keep in mind the changing dynamics of the world and urge them to hone themselves regarding the rapid advancements in technology.This is challenging educational systems positively, hence developing them along the way. This era shows how advanced learning techniques have enabled unique and innovative lessons. They are possible only by the application of these smart devices in classrooms.ConclusionBeing worried about what the future holds for us is only natural. We need to realize that advancements are inevitable for humans to be able to explore the new horizons. What we need to do is to have the ability to flow smoothly with the currents of expertise. Acquiring increased knowledge related to the new fields spawning at every turn is integral in becoming successful.Companies need to train their workforce and make them familiar to the proper use and application of IoT. With proper will and determination, the world at large, and we can benefit immensely from the implementation of IoT.

Windfall for Odisha tribals if single-use plastic is banned

first_imgAs the focus is likely to shift to alternative products from single-use plastic that India plans to ban, millions of people, especially tribals residing in Odisha’s forest-rich regions, expect an upturn in their income.Close to five million people in Odisha are currently involved in plate-making using both hand and machine stitching methods. They depend on two major leaves of forest species – sal and siali – for their earnings.“Odisha’s leaf plate and cup market is worth ₹1,500 crore. While 2.5 million people mostly tribals are sal leaf pluckers, 1.5 million are siali leaf pluckers. Around one million are connected with other leaves,” said Chittaranjan Pani, a leading expert on non-timber forest product trade.As soon as plastic products are banned, the focus will shift to degradable materials and leaf plates and cups are one of the obvious choices. In 22 of the 30 districts of Odisha, inhabitants of forest-fringe villages are traditionally involved in leaf-plate making. In some districts, tribal women have already formed federations to get a better deal in the trade.last_img read more

Sreejesh likely to get a reprieve for playing in charity match

first_img(Eds: Making correction in para 5)By Saumojyoti S ChoudhuryBhubaneswar, Dec 3 (PTI) PR Sreejeshs decision to play in Virat Kohlis charity football match might have raised a few eyebrows but Indias premier hockey goalkeeper might well just get away with a reprieve, at least this time.Indian hockey teams regular captain Sreejesh played a Celebrity Clasico in October this year in Mumbai, featuring the countrys top sports and Bollywood stars, including India cricket captain Virat and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.During that period Srejeesh was on a break but what went against him was that he was recuperating from a serious injury that time after being sidelined from the national team following the Azlan Shah Cup in May earlier this year.There were reports that Sreejeshs action didnt go down well with the team management but he might just get away as Hockey India is yet to initiate any disciplinary action against him.”Yes, it came to our notice but we didnt initiate any disciplinary action as yet. We are currently busy with the Hockey World League Final and no disciplinary meeting has been called,” Hockey India CEO Elena Norman, who is also a member of the Disciplinary Committee, told PTI.Another member of the Disciplinary Committee is completely in dark about the issue and said he only came to know about the matter when contacted today.”Its news to me. I only came to know about the matter today. I am not aware of any Disciplinary Committee meeting. I havent been told anything by Hockey India as yet. Any progress on this matter will take place, if it has to, only after the Hockey World League Final,” said the senior member of the committee.advertisementConsidered as the best in his business, Sreejesh has been the backbone of Indian hockey since his debut and his brilliance under the bar won India many matches, which includes the 2014 Asian Games gold in Incheon.In May this year, Sreejesh had torn his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during the Sultan Azlan Shah tournament in Malaysia and since then he has been out of the side. India is desperately hoping for Sreejesh to recover soon especially with a busy 2018 lined up.But Sreejeshs action is in serious breach of Hockey Indias Code of Conduct and he faces the risk of four months suspension.”Sreejesh is a role model for young hockey players and his actions will leave an impact on them. Even though I dont know whose permission he took to play in the match just when he was recovering an injury, I feel he should have avoided it thinking about his own and nations cause,” the Disciplinary Committee member, said.”Having said that he never had any disciplinary issues in the past, so I feel he will escape with a warning. India need Sreejesh services.”But the big question which is making round is that just whose permission did Indias premier goalkeeper take to play in the Celebrity Classico.”Sreejesh didnt ask Hockey India before playing in the match. We dont have anything on record,” the HI CEO said.”He might have taken permission from his coaches, physio or the High Performance Manager,” she said.High Performance Manager David John, however, said he was not approached by Sreejesh.”I was not asked. During that period I was not in India. I was with the team in Dhaka for the Asia Cup,” John said.When contacted, Sreejesh refused to comment on the issue.”I wont like to comment anything on the issue. We will talk later,” he said before disconnecting the phone. PTI SSC ATK ATKlast_img read more

Father who lost son in Broncos crash wants graduated licensing in truck

first_imgREGINA — A father who lost his son in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash says mandatory training in Saskatchewan for commercial semi-truck drivers is a good first step, but he wants to see more.Russ Herold, whose son Adam died in a collision between the junior hockey team’s bus and a semi last April, told CJME in Regina that he would like to see the rules adopted nationwide.Herold is also calling for graduated licensing with limits on mileage and on what semi-trailer combinations drivers are allowed based on how much time they’ve spent behind the wheel.Last week, the Saskatchewan government announced that, starting in March, drivers will have to take mandatory training of just over 120 hours for a Class 1 commercial licence.Farmers driving for agricultural purposes will be exempt from the new rules, but will need to stay within the provincial boundary.Herold, a farmer himself, doesn’t think there should be exemptions for anyone.“There is no such thing as a border when you’re a truck driver nowadays,” he said. “Everybody sees that there’s lots of trucks. Truck traffic is just the way goods move these days and we need to ensure the roads are safe.”He suggested experience has to be key in training.“Experience behind the wheel is what’s going to make people better drivers. You’re not going on a thousand-mile trip your first trip out,” Herold said.“We all share the road and an accident could happen in 50 miles as easy as it can in 500 miles.”Sixteen people were killed and 13 players were injured as a result of the crash at a rural intersection in April as the Broncos were heading to a junior hockey playoff game.The truck driver, Jaskirat Singh Sidhu, is charged with numerous counts of dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm.Joe Hargrave, minister responsible for Saskatchewan Government Insurance, has called mandatory training overdue and said the government had been considering the measure even before the Broncos crash.Herold said he gets frustrated to hear that from a government that has been in power for years.“If people talk like that, obviously they know there was a concern. There was possibly a problem,” he said. “Why weren’t things done sooner? Why did it take a tragedy like this to bring it to the forefront?”(CJME)The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Ohio State womens hockey names Nadine Muzerall head coach

Within 20 days of the its first game, the Ohio State women’s hockey team has hired former Minnesota Golden Gophers assistant coach Nadine Muzerall as its head coach, announced in the second quarter of the Ohio State football game on Saturday.Muzerall fills a hole left by former coach Jenny Potter who left the program on Aug. 18, just five weeks before the first game and five days before classes began. OSU was 10-25-1 under Potter in 2015-16.“We’ve all heard such good things (about Muzerall),” junior defenseman Dani Sadek said. “She has a winning mindset and I think that’s what this program needs.”The first thing to know about the new Buckeye coach is her connection to the Golden Gophers’ women’s hockey program.Muzerall was on the bench of last year’s Minnesota squad that won the national championship over Boston College. She spent the past five seasons at Minnesota coaching in five national championship games and claiming four championship rings.As a player at Minnesota from 1997-2001, she began her extensive trophy case by collecting two All-American honors in 1998 and 2000. Muzerall was also on the Gophers team that won an AWCHA national championship — women’s hockey was not an NCAA-sanctioned sport until 2000-2001 season — and a 2001 Western Collegiate Hockey Association conference championship.Muzerall still holds the all-time goals record for Minnesota women’s hockey with 139 career goals. She also leads the all-time goals per game mark with 1.08. She ranks third all-time in career points with 235.The Ontario, Canada, native was the first women’s hockey player inducted into the hall of fame at the university. She is still the youngest athlete to be inducted into Minnesota’s hall of fame.Muzerall is OSU’s third coach in as many years following Porter’s departure and the resignation of former coach Nate Handrahan amidst sexual harassment allegations.OSU opens the season on Friday, Sept. 30, at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. read more
