Automation has its own set of pros and cons, but it is sure to change our lives dramatically. In fact, some are already starting to feel this changes.
Automation will help companies reduce costs and increase productivity, and this will eventually lead to more competition and choice in product types. In this case, the last consumer will be the winner, as well as the companies that will learn how to take advantage of this rising trend. As automation reaches many industries, people will have more free time and eventually become more connected and interactive. Technology will save us a lot of time, which is why we should refocus it on what makes us happier, perhaps working in more interesting jobs. As automation takes hold and deepens in our lives, we must learn new skills in order to adapt to the modern world. We must learn to use automation to our advantage, because this is inevitable.
When we think of automation, typical examples, such as factory robots and automated testing tools for software, often come to mind, but what if automation experienced massive development processes that made it smarter by integrating these tools with machine learning techniques? Imagine a world where automation tools monitor how we work and then use AI-guided information to tell us in real time how to do better (or how to scale up our efforts to work in our favor).
This is not a fantasy; intelligent automation is on the cusp of our real life and will profoundly change the way we work. Today's automation tools are largely isolated and segmented into their own domains; a web Chabot usually does not interact with a customer service agent unless it is programmed to pass control over the flow of conversations when certain conditions are met. We define exactly what we want to automate, and then we design and develop the robot for
exactly that purpose.
The entire building environment In the wake of a sharp transformation, artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IOT), robotics and all other technologies are not only responsible for the emergence of smart cities, automated processes and new business opportunities, but are also changing the rules that underpin all real estate. Automation and technology will extend people's lives, change the labor market and affect our environmental surroundings and social life.
But how will these buildings affect our lives?
- High life expectancy in society:
Technologically enhanced healthcare will dramatically extend the lifespan of future societies. While solutions such as the CRISPR/Cas9 gene correction are still relatively nascent, they may pave the way for long genetically modified human life. The technology will help to control the activities of people, for example, through the use of fitness trackers, nutrition application or data obtained through sensors connected to the network as an entire city, which will increase the focus on preventive health care rather than retro health care. Therefore, preventive health care in the future will try to avoid the occurrence of diseases than treat the symptoms.
As a result, people in the world may reach beyond the average until their 90th birthday, which necessitates an increase in building technology with the needs of an aging society, such as: the demand for individual properties will decrease, the demand for buildings that are sustainably ready, flexible and efficient in use will increase.
- More sustainable real estate through 3D building rendering:
The real-estate sector is responsible for more than 20% of carbon emissions, which must be reduced significantly to avoid further destabilizing our climate and meet the challenges of demographic change in the future. Combining 3D-drawing with synthetic biology may create more sustainable buildings.
The impact of 3D printing on sustainability will be greatly enhanced once biopolymers are used in the projects. Synthetic biology will enable the creation of sustainable plastics that can be used
in construction or manufacturing. In the long-term future, we may see growth in infrastructure
connected to synthetic and biofabricated roofs and image synthesis in the built environment
that produce renewable energy, structures that heal, or materials that store and send data that will provide a more sustainable built environment.
- The impact of automation on real estate demand:
With nearly 50% of all current jobs expected to disappear by 2055 as a result of automation, it is almost certain that our work environment will change dramatically and the requirements about real-estate assets will change so. With more automation and remote working, this will automate logistics and manufacturing which will mean increased demand for highly flexible, connected, and server-equipped properties. Analog encounters may be abandoned and these shifts in the labor market will not only affect our profession, but our life and work environments, the entire range of all buildings. Homeowners and city planners will need to think about the future attractiveness and utility of any space, whether residential, commercial or industrial, to make the best possible use of it for future life.
We are the ones who decide what future we live in…
The future of the building environment is in our hands, we can decide in which houses we want to live to have the most comfortable and luxurious life, in which offices and factories we want to work for the highest productivity, and where we want to spend our free time to enjoy the highest levels of comfort and save time and effort. It is we who will decide what we need for all available technological, environmental, ethical, legal, political and societal changes - not just inside buildings, but any aspect of life.
