Robots replaced the lack of labor in Singapore

Robots replaced the lack of labor in Singapore

Singapore business began to massively introduce assistant robots due to lack of labor. This writes Reuters.

According to the Ministry of Labor Resources of Singapore, due to migration restrictions introduced against the background of the pandemic from December 2019 to September 2021, the number of foreign workers decreased by 235,700 people. This made it possible to accelerate the “pace of implementation and automation of technology by companies”, the authorities said September 27, 2022 .

The Gammon construction company said that she began to use a four -legged spot robot to scan dirty and gravel plots. After checking the progress of work, the data is returned to the dispatch.

According to Gammon General Manager Michael O’Connella, only one employee needs only one employee instead of two who had previously performed work manually.

“Replacing the need for labor on the spot is gaining momentum,” he said.

O’Connell believes that the lack of employees in the industry aggravated by the pandemia will not go anywhere.

The National Library of Singapore introduced two robots that can scan labels for 100,000 books (about 30% of its collection) per day.

“Employees do not need to read numbers one after another, and this reduces the routine and laborious components [work],” said Li Yi Fuang library, assistant director of the library director.

Robots are also used to solve problems related to customers: At more than 30 metro stations, devices are installed that prepare coffee for passengers.

However, some users of services noted a lack of communication with people.

“We always want to have some kind of human contact,” said Ashish Kumar metro passenger.

In January, researchers reported that by 2040 widespread automation at enterprises will deprive 12 million Europeans of work.
