Fear cloud in the IT industry

Fear cloud in the IT industry

Trump is not alone in defending the robot

H-1B visa restrictions. And the bill that came to the US Congress to stop the outsourcing of call centers. The rapid rise of artificial intelligence is now a headache for India's IT industry with the double whammy of Donald Trump's era. According to the survey, by 2021, which will swallow up about six and a half million job opportunities in this country!

As a result, the picture of IT workers in the state is still unclear. But since a large part of the workers in this industry are South Indians and Bengalis, the state is also hearing the alarm bells of Kazakheko robots.

People have started losing jobs to machines and robots for a long time. It is easily felt in big factories. But now with the help of artificial intelligence technology, a lot of work is being taken away from it, which was unimaginable even a few days ago. Whether it is a bank employee or a software engineer. According to a World Bank report, by 2021, India could lose 79% of its jobs due to machinery. The international survey firm Horses for Sources Research claims that 7.4 lakh jobs will be lost in the country in four years. Especially IT services and BPO will suffer. Where in many cases the same thing has to be done repeatedly. Some tasks also require a little less skill.

The fact that this wave of technology-tsunami has started to rise slowly is evident in the statistics of the IT companies doing business in the state. TCS, Cognizant, Wipro: All three companies are rushing to recruit workers due to automated machines. The IT industry is thriving on US President Donald Trump's H-1B visa restrictions and his promise not to allow call center work outside the United States. This fight with the machine to keep working on him is waking up his staff.

Malcolm Frank, one of Cognizant's chief executives, however, claims that the current 12% of jobs may be lost because of the device. Similarly, 13% of new job opportunities will be created. CP Gurnani, head of Tech Mahindra and chairman of Nasscom, also claimed that the new technology would not only create job opportunities but also create new jobs. Newly trained staff will operate the machine. And this is where training is gaining importance. "Uncertainty has been created," said R Chandrasekhar, president of Nasscom. But in line with the changes, the workers will be trained in new technologies.

Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, recently said that it is time to think about taxing robots. Whatever the assurance of the companies, the world of information technology is now so awesome for fear of losing jobs to machines.
