Robots are transforming the world
Robots bring out conflicting emotions and ideas in different people around the world. There are those who view robots as a threat to society, while there are other people who consider robots a natural progression. A reality of the world that we are living in now.
With big businesses firmly behind the progression to having more robots in their business premises and in society, more and more research is being carried out to the achievement of this goal.
As robots are now a reality in our present world and already have a position in the future world, here are some ways that robots are transforming the world now and in the future.
Robots are transforming the industry
Robots have been on the factory floor for decades now. Over time, they have progressed from the dangerous and caged machines to now being collaborative robots that enable workers to think more creatively and achieve much more in a shorter time. With the flexible industrial robotic arm, robots can now capably handle more tasks than what has been normal for robots.
In addition to the actual hard work, the transformational value of robots is felt beyond manual and physical labor jobs but also in white-collar jobs. With advances in technology, robots are now competently handling customer service jobs in hotels and helping with patient care in hospitals and at home.
As technology advances, robots are expected to gain increased intelligence and with these the ability to learn from their surroundings and mimic what they see. We will see more and more robots around us and we should start accepting them as part of our lives as cars rather than horses have become.
Robots are transforming how we travel
With the advancement of technology and especially the internet, travel has become quite easy and smooth now. With the internet, hotels are using software booking robots that enable you to book for and pay for a room in a different continent in real-time and when you get there, you find your room ready.
Similarly, you can book for a flight to anywhere online. Besides international travel, software companies such as Uber have developed software that makes it easy to move around locally by calling on any nearby Uber cab operator at the touch of a button.
Further, cars are now actual robots. They are independent and have the ability to drive themselves. Soon, you will be able to request for a self-driving car as a cab.
Robots are transforming education
As the importance of robots grows, they are gaining more and more opportunities to prove themselves. Recently, a robot has been assigned a teaching assistant job for an online class.
This has great promise in transforming the way teachers teach and students learn. Online classes will especially be more interactive and much easier. Robots are able to access the class at all times. When students ask a question, they can expect an answer almost immediately from their robot teacher. Human teachers may take some time to answer questions, especially for online classes.
Robots are transforming communication
Communication is an essential part of human interaction. Advancements in technology have led to the growth and increase of software robots that are making it easier to communicate. One of the most common communication technologies is translation. With this technology easily available in our phones, one can speak the language they understand and ask the translation software to translate it into a particular language.
Robots in the factory can also easily send a text to a human engineer when they need to be checked for faults. The human engineer can respond to the robot’s communication and manage the fault remotely and the robot will get back to its optimum state of work.
Robots are disrupting numerous other sectors of the economy as we know them. Whether they are actual or software, robots are no longer the stuff of fictional stories but a growing way to transform and make a life for human beings better.
