Automation; The New Industrial Revolution.
Arnstein, George E.
Automation is a word that describes the workings of computers and the innovations of automatic transfer machines in the factory. As the hallmark of the new industrial revolution, computers displace workers and create a need for new skills and retraining programs. With improved communication between industry and the educational community to alleviate the psychological pressures of a machine economy, automation should lead not only to higher productivity but also a higher standard of living.
