How many times and it’s become a long journey that robots will take over the world and human jobs? Many people are afraid of a robot invasion. The (invasion will not look like it does in science fiction) is already happening.
Artificial intelligence is using in some other contexts to operate cell phones, computers, and electronics, for example. AI is a technology that can solve problems and respond to its environment.
According to Wu Dekai, Professor of Computer Science and Technology at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, AI is known as “A machine with a human level of intelligence.”
This form of technology is rapidly evolving. We must learn to adapt through education and the development of new jobs.
On the other hand, automation is a type of technology that allows machines to perform certain tasks. This decreases the amount of human labour needed.
ROBOT TAKING HUMANS JOBS
A robotic arm or computer, on the other hand, is much more capable of performing menial tasks than a typical human worker.
In certain cases, robots will have an advantage over human workers, but they will not fully replace them.
Workplaces in the future, according to Fok, would put a greater emphasis on robot-human collaboration rather than robots that can only repeat the same commands. We can hope for the future that humans and androids will be able to collaborate.
Although new technology can eliminate some human employment, it also creates new ones. Engineers and IT specialists are in high demand in many businesses. Wu believes it is “really important to refocus education [towards] things that humans value culturally rather than just the drilling of technological skills” to prepare future generations for the types of jobs humans will be doing in the future.
Pew Research is far from the first organisation to address the topic of automation—or the unease it causes in certain workplaces. According to a 2013 report by Oxford University researchers, 47 per cent of workers in the United States may be “computerised” in the future.
The study also identified the occupations most at risk of automation (look out telemarketers, title examiners, and hand sewers). It seems that robots will take human jobs in the near future fully.
MANUFACTURER ROBOT DEMANDS
Ask any manufacturer whether they expect robots to replace human workers, and they’ll all say the same thing.
The cost of constructing and maintaining a fully facility is prohibitively costly, highly dangerous, and far off in the future.
Collaborative robots, on the other hand, are demonstrating that the future has arrived. It isn’t the stuff of dystopian science fiction. It won’t be long before fully automated factories are the rule, opening up new business opportunities.
Artificial intelligence, smart sensors, sense-and-avoid devices, and articulated robotic joints are only a few of the evolving technologies that are coming together in new and exciting ways.
Consequently, we have a linked network of machines that collaborate in the same way as humans do. Rather than a single robot performing all steps of a process. Multiple machines specialise in one or a few tasks and then interact with other robots to begin the next work segment.
The workflow is similar to that of a labour-intensive factory, with one major difference: robots can work nonstop, in dreadful conditions, and without pay.
Sewbots, created by software Automation in partnership with Georgia Tech University. It can sew a pair of jeans or a T-shirt without the need for human interaction. This does not seem to be all that remarkable; after all, cars can now drive themselves on highways.
Soft textiles, on the other hand, face a variety of difficulties. Fabrics are highly variable, with thousands of tiny colours, stretch, and weave distortions. Human employees with a lot of experience will find irregularities and make changes while they’re working.
It wasn’t until recently that this was done with machine-learning algorithms and robots. A Sewbot working, when combined with Softwear’s other systems, can create 1,142 T-shirts in eight hours, equivalent to the work of 17 humans.
Sewbo, a Seattle-based company, takes a unique approach. Rather than creating highly advanced robot teams to manufacture garments. Sewbo devised a method for adding a stiffener to fabrics before stitching, which turns the fabric into a thin sheet of hard plastic.
GIGAFACTORY AND FOXCONN
The falling cost of sensors and materials, as well as rapid development in other fields, would open up a slew of new possibilities.
Hundreds of robotic arms and “automated guided vehicles,” or mobile robots that move objects from one area to another will soon be used at Tesla’s Gigafactory.
Foxconn, is the Taiwanese manufacturing behemoth has announced that in the end of 2020, it will use “Foxbots,” or robots, to perform 30% of its electronics manufacturing.
Instrumental, located in Los Altos, California, creates an optical inspection device that detects minute variations during manufacturing and can help pull out faulty goods. The manufacturing capabilities will be to improve the efficiency of the entire manufacturing process.
According to others, it would reduce many manufacturing workers and raise unemployment. However, technology has often doing jobs that were once only performed by humans. Forced the development of new jobs to meet society’s shifting demands.
BENEFICIAL ROBOT EMPLOYEE
The shift to robot employees is beneficial to the industry. It’s also profitable. Companies have turned to offshore production to meet the demand for ever-cheaper goods, which also absorbs real costs.
A rundown Bangladeshi factory that produced clothing for Benetton and Walmart collapsed in 2013, killing 1,130 people injuring 2,500 others.
On the other hand, new robots could be able to carry manufacturing back to the United States without raising prices. Bringing such factories back so they could lower prices around the supply chain.
With less money going to overseas contractors, transportation, and international taxes. This means higher income while also giving customers a price break.
Workers, manufacturers are more likely to be happier because robots are often assign for roles that humans don’t especially like, such as menial labour, repetitive motion, or risky occupations. Robots are taking human jobs and they’ll be working on more fascinating jobs that won’t grate on their nerves.
