For a long time, sci-fi has made us fantasise about having our own robot companies.
The lockdown loneliness might make your crave for a helpful robot even more, but chances are most of us won’t like the robo-world that’s fast approaching!
The pandemic has exacerbated the unemployment crisis and robots could soon add to the plight. While robots where created to make our lives easier now they are about to steal our jobs too.
We have heard news of robots being used in multiple sectors. But the thought they they would replace human capital might to something that did not cross many of us. From health to construction to data entry and analysation, anything that can be automated would replaced with AI soon.
In Japan, automation technology is being experimented heavily in the field of construction. The physical work force consists of entirely robots in all phases as Obayashi automated equipment to construct a 275- foot tall 1096-foot wide dam expected to be completed in March 2023.
COVID-19 also brought interesting approaches in the automated industry or companies gearer up to fight challenge’s posed by the pandemic.
Robots have worked along with Frontline warriors like in AIIMS COVID wards, cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and handling samples. They over used extremely in logistics too.
But, it’s not just the mundane and physically engaging tasks that robots might take over.
With humanoid robots gearing up for all robot winter Olympics 2026, sports could be robo-centric soon. AI is also threatening creative jobs that require brain activity live content writing, web designing, graphic designing etc..
It’s not just our jobs that robots are threatening, but our safety too, according to BBC, the use of robots in Amazon’s work houses has spiked accidents by 50%. Evidently, a glitch is technology can be detrimental after all.
Are “we” ready to face an AI invasion in all spheres?
