Employment and education – robots and cobots

A number of research studies published only a few weeks ago reviews a borderline theme concerning the relations between technological innovation, education and employment

First automation, then digitalisation, and now robots and cobots – these are only a few amongst the major steps forward taken in the employment and corporate spheres in recent times, and though already accomplished, they nonetheless need to be fully understood. Evolutions that were not easy to achieve, and also not as apocalyptic as some people feared. In any case, and whether in agreement or not, the use of robots and cobots (that is, robots that collaborate with humans to carry out specific operations) is, together with Artificial Intelligence, the latest frontier in industrial production (and not only). Understanding what is happening is essential for everyone, and above all for those who, entrepreneurs or executives, currently have a role in the management of productive processes involving AI and other new approaches.

This is why reading Robot e cobot nell’impresa e nella scuola. Processi formativi e trasformativi nella workplace innovation (Robots and cobots at work and in schools. Formative and transformational processes in workplace innovation) is really useful – a collection of 16 research studies revolving around the notion of the presence and use of robots in today’s production systems, as well as in education and training paths in the widest sense.

The curator, Daniela Robasto, points out in the introduction that, “The book’s stance is far from preconceived techno-enthusiastic or techno-critical approaches and wants to suggest distance from a ‘win-win attitude at all costs’, which does not properly consider some crucial topics in support of innovative processes, such as training for employees (…), the legal perspectives connected to the introduction of technologies (…).” Thus, the aim of this collection is to describe and analyse – starting from the activities undertaken as part of the Italian research project TRADARS – the potential and the operational aspects of robots and cobots that “assist people in accomplishing more or less complex tasks, learning included.”

The studies, then, range from a general framing of the topic to a series of in-depth explorations on the inclusion and use of these machine both in the production and in the educational spheres. Hence, they include thoughts on the digital transition, technological innovation and trust in the workplace, human-machine collaboration, the educational power of robotics, big data and robots, and much more.

The overall final message arising from this work is loud and clear: the attention paid by the educational world to these tools, as well as the bond between them, must grow stronger.

The introduction ends with a beautiful thought: “This books wants to be, above all, an opportunity for dialogue.” An aim that all research studies and books should share, even those dedicated to robots and cobots.
