Where Robots Are Automating Jobs - CityLab
Automation. Depending on the angle from which you’re looking at the crystal ball, it’s either an imminent wave of large-scale labor force devastation or a slower, more muted change that society will seemlessly absorb—and perhaps even enjoy.

Half of America's robot workforce is located in just 10 states - MSN
If you believe the great robot takeover has begun, then Michigan appears to be ground zero. Michigan has the nation’s highest rate of industrial robots as a percentage of workers, and the state’s factories are now using nearly as many robots as the entire West Coast of the United States.

Tech and the renaissance of manufacturing in America - Heartland Tech - VentureBeat
The conversation we are not having, however, is how existing AI is able to create, not eliminate, jobs. Nowhere is this more evident than in advanced manufacturing where AI can improve the precision and speed of production that maximize the skills of machinist, enhancing their competitiveness on the global market.

Why manufacturing jobs are coming back to the U.S. — even as companies buy more robots - Recode
In the long run, many think that automation and robotics are going to replace a significant percentage, if not the overwhelming majority, of manufacturing jobs. That’s certainly a possibility. But for now, even as companies add more robots to North American factory floors, the number of human jobs in manufacturing is also on the rise.

More Robots, Fewer Jobs - Bloomberg
Are you about to be replaced by a robot? The question has broad implications for the U.S. economy, especially the manufacturing sector. Industries that robotize tend to increase output. But robots can have dire consequences for workers.

Two economists recently concluded that both jobs and wages fall in parts of the U.S. where more robots are installed.

Skills gap hard to fill in robot-driven manufacturing sector -
Manufacturing’s new face – clean operations in modern, well-lit, well-staffed industrial plant settings – is driving domestic employment growth, and robots are a key cog in that modern machinery.

From 2010 to 2016, according to a white paper for the Association for Advancing Automation, 136,748 robots were shipped to U.S. customers, the most ever in the domestic robotics industry.

Robots can't lace shoes, so sneaker production can't be fully automated just yet - Quartz
Of the approximately 120 steps involved in manufacturing an Adidas sneaker, the seemingly simple task of lacing is among those robots have not yet been able to master, at least not on an industrial scale, according to Adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted. “The biggest challenge the shoe industry has is how do you create a robot that puts the lace into the shoe,” he said. “I’m not kidding. That’s a complete manual process today. There is no technology for that.”

10 Principles for Leading the Next Industrial Revolution - strategy+business
Conventional boundaries between industries are eroding. It’s getting harder to tell the difference between, say, a telecommunications company and an entertainment producer, or between a retail bank and a retail store. The relationships among suppliers, producers, and consumers are also blurring, more rapidly than many business decision makers are prepared for.

China and the US's robotics race: The US can lead by focusing on what it does best: software, sensors, and design - Quartz
The US should focus on what it does best: software, sensors, and design. Building the factories and production lines of the future demands the kind of expertise that US-based engineers and system integrators are best positioned to deliver. After all, we built the internet. So let’s build the Internet of Things, starting in the factory.
