We’re halfway through 2019 and you may have seen the latest video going around of a robot playing catch and then getting beat by a human. Despite the fact that shortly thereafter the video was announced as a fake, it was still a reminder of the scary possibility of the future of robots and that robots may potentially take all of our jobs.
The idea that robots are going to take our jobs is nothing new though. People have been talking about robots for 3 – 5 years, ever since robots company Boston Dynamics showed off their robots and how more realistic they have become. Now yes, robots are going to be taking remedial jobs away, but just the remedial jobs that affect pushing buttons. Those in creative fields still don’t have much to worry about and that includes us CAD Designers.
CAD Designers are creatives and that means they do not have anything to fear in response to their jobs being taken away. Here’s why:
- CAD Designers are about creativity. Though robots and computer programs are great, they cannot create something on their own quite yet without being directed or controlled by people.
- CAD Designers can offer feedback. Robots might come with years of doing projects, but they do not offer feedback to each and every project that a human being can.
- CAD Designers can create quick changes. When a program fails or a sketch needs to be redone on the fly a CAD Designer can make those changes instead of a machine that will need the information to be punch into.
Are robots coming? Yes, they have been coming for the last few years but they are still far away from being able to do something creative as creating a CAD Design.
