Humanitarian Advancement and Security Committee (HASCOM)
Agenda Item: Development and sharing of automation technologies and re-evaluation of
unnecessary workforce caused by automation.
Automation is a technology that performs a process, a procedure with minimal human intervention. General-purpose can be listed as home, banking, laboratory, an integrated library, broadcast, console, and building automation. For example, if we consider the automation system for a production system, the system used provides control and accessibility by the factory. With computerized automation for example, in an ERP-based system, the automation system provides the amount of product produced, the location of the failure, if any, and access to a lot of information about the factory. The automation system used decreases the manpower used by increasing production capacity. The major disadvantage of these systems is that their initial installation cost is too high. This cost also can depreciate themselves in the long run. Another downside is that the automation system entering the factories causes a decrease in the number of factory employees. Many companies have already started to follow and adapt to automation developments. For example, supermarkets opened by Amazon without manpower.
This year, at HASCOM, we will consider the issue of re-evaluation of excessive manpower caused by automation and the fight against unemployment with a completely different perspective.
How about solving this problem as companies that are the cornerstone of this issue rather than countries?
