Artificial intelligence and automation: Can robots take your design job?

Artificial intelligence and automation: Can robots take your design job?

We came across an interesting website the other day called There is plenty of speculation about how robots will impact our lives—for the positive and negative—and people are pondering if they should be worried about the future of their jobs.

Robots free humans up from the dull, repetitive manual jobs.

There are a lot of repetitive and tedious tasks robots and technology automation are uniquely qualified for. When they take care of these, it frees up the human workforce to focus on more creative and interesting pursuits. For example from Amazon fulfillment centers to hotels and even hospitals, robots are removing the tedium from many workplaces and often saving money in the process.

AI is going to replace many menial jobs

It’s certainly true that the advent of AI and automation has the potential to seriously disrupt labor – and in many situations it is already doing just that. Seeing this as a straightforward transfer of labor from humans to machines, however is a vast over-simplification.

In the short-term, employers are generally looking at AI technology as a method of augmenting human workforces, and enabling them to work in newer and smarter ways.

In the design, architectural and building facility operations, there are many manual processes we wished were automated to free up designers, architect and operation facility managers to do the things we like to do best.

PAM is leading the way in streamlining wayfinding processes. By streamlining dull, repetitive manual tasks that take a lot of human time, PAM leaves designers, architects and operation facility managers more time to do the things they enjoy to do from designing beautiful functional buildings, managing client projects to having more time to service the needs of tenants, visitors and stakeholders.

PAM facilitates manual processes like  auditing of wayfinding in venues, buildings and campus by capturing images in situ against floor plans and storing these files together in a centralised platform.

With PAM, project managers can significantly reduce the time it takes them to manage vendors by tracking the installation of signage and preparing invoices based upon work completed without the need to cross reference. Compile detailed documentation automatically from PAM that can be used in a job tender or bid situation or just to update a vendor on changes to the project scope.

Designers, architects, operation facility managers are vital jobs despite the fact that technology is assuming many of their menial and repetitive tasks. By taking over these menial and repetitive tasks, businesses can save thousands of dollars in workforce downtime and instead optimise workforce productivity in the areas that matter – servicing the needs of your users, clients, tenants, visitors and stakeholders.
