THE RACE BETWEEN THE COOK AND TECHNOLOGY... (THE CHEF HAS JOB SECURITY)
As the world keeps advancing, Africa as a continent is not taking a second place in its innovations and change.
New ideas grow from different places and are also implemented.
Sad to say which is actually a good news somehow is that most of these ideas are being carried out through technological means and lesser human efforts as it used to be.
Lesser people in factories, lesser workers in banks, lessee workers in companies.
It all turns out that technology is taking over jobs faster than we expect.
It all turns out that the cook is beginning to thin out as he competes with machines and technological advancements.
Check out the link below to read on The Chef and The Cook to know why I predicted this war sometimes ago.
The cook seems to try harder, wake up earlier, spend more hours at work, work extra harder, hey home late yet still have his job threatened by technological advancement.
While the chef comes at his convenience and directs and controls the technological devices to his comfort.
This is happening because the cook falls into category of jobs or operations that fall into routine, that have a definite way of operation.
That operate like binary 0 & 1. Lots of jobs in this century unfortunately still fall in this category.
Sitting on a desk, inputting records, working in a factory, customer service and thousands of others.
The reason they get to be in this mess is because technology is taking over. It can also follow a definite set of order based on instruction, input record, reply customers, arrange, carry, transfer and thousand other activities that follow a definite pattern.
The point where the cook gets to lose is in productivity because he cannot be as efficient and faster than a machine.
IN THE RACE TOWARDS PRODUCTIVITY, HUMANS HAVE LOST BEFORE THEY BEGAN.
A machine can carry out operations of a thousand workers in a hundred hours and accomplish within minutes. Just give it data and instructions.
The cook has to work extra harder, more hours to meet up until losing the job becomes inevitable.
If your profession falls in this line, I would suggest you begin to veer towards being a chef.
A chef is the one who creates the data, invents the instructions, the recipe and instructs the machine.
Check out the field you're going to.
Don't try to be a cook, you're risking your job.
