In recent past years, robots have become an important solution to the chronic labor shortage. Japan’s overall population has started to decline, creating a huge labor market shortage. Nowadays, smart robots capable of performing different jobs in almost every industry have become a must. One study shows that over 50 percent of Japanese jobs are automatable. The job vacancies are at their most necessary; Japan either accepts many immigrants or depends on their automation.
Therefore, Japan’s combination of Artificial intelligence and robots is the solution to the rapidly shrinking labor force. Workforce automation has completely redefined human labor and work process in some industries or services. While some other countries are concerned that automation can negatively impact the need for human jobs and have tremendous consequences on the human and overall economic conditions, for Japan, it is a necessity well embraced. However, it has also aided the staff in producing and using their time more effectively. For instance, repetitive manufacturing operations and lifting bulky goods in the construction sector no longer impact the workers thanks to robotic arms.
Additionally, business automation with robotics and artificial intelligence results in increased productivity and product quality, enabling businesses to stay one step ahead of their competitors. As a result, the employment of robotics in Japan has been successful, leading to significant increases in industrial productivity.
