What Role Will Robots Play In the Future?
As time passes on, it's a wonder of what the future will bring. Sure technology is becoming more efficient and advanced. There are already self-driving cars, smart houses, and even using face recognition to pay bills. Anything that requires human to human interaction will be obsolete. Scientists and engineers are creating robots to replace jobs that were once done by humans. As weird as it seems robots will play a significant role in the future.
How Robots Will Take Over Space
Google, the search giant, has already invested millions into the engineering and experiments of robots. They recently bought several robotic firms and had even offered $20 million to avoid anyone who can get a robot to the moon. Elon Musk and Richard Branson believe that space travel is essential to the survival of humans. They are using robots to pave the way.Their goal is to find inexpensive ways to make them astronauts. With Google researching these discoveries this will happen sooner rather than later. Once the renovations are done, Google will start doing research, development, assembly, and testing involving robots and space exploration. The main agenda Google has to do is ensure the robots are self-training and self-repairing. The more errors and issues with robots the longer it will take for them to work correctly.
How Will Robots Be In the Workforce?
Robots will not completely replace all humans in the workforce. There will be fewer humans needed because robots will serve as assistants. London Underground trains are looking into robotic drivers. The wages are high, travelers have too many strikes, and drivers skills are low. They have spent years working on this, but there is still a need of money to continue the research. It will take about ten years to see robotically operated trains.How would you like to have a robot as a nurse? Well, the US has used robotic nurses for years. They carry patient meals, notes, mail, deliver bed linen, trash, drugs, and dressing. These tasks are very easy and straightforward for robots. However, the cost of making the robots is more than the hourly wage humans make as nurses.
Robots As Teachers
Robots in the academic world will increase. The Open University has used tvs and self-teaching texts in place of a teacher or instructor. Other universities are using robots and machines at BSc and MSc levels to students in other countries. Some robots have the same physical appearance as humans teaching children how to recycle, reuse, and reduce waste. Robotic teachers are more prevalent in the U.K. and have taught in front of 2 million people.As scary as it may seem robots will be airline pilots. Despite's people concern over airplane safety humans are the cause of most aircraft accidents. Airplanes are structurally, mechanically, and electronically operated by computers. Passengers won't accept planes to be controlled solely by robots. They still want some human involvement just in case anything goes wrong. In the next ten to twenty years, pilots will still be on board, but robots will mostly be in control.When it comes to robots cooking and cleaning, it's unlikely to happen in the next fifty years. Mainly because tasks such as ironing, washing dishes, and folding clothes would cost tons of money. Overseeing health problems and being an attendant to the elderly are the domestic roles robots will play in the future. As advanced as technology is, it's great to know that no one will ever replace the human mind.
