As robots will penetrate into society and everyday life, many new jobs will be created and not necessarily all highly skilled jobs. Most robots need great service and care. And there will be many instances where robots can only work when people are employed as robot guides.
Robot and human communication is elementary and will take many years to reach very high levels. Moreover, common sense in communication is in some cases difficult to develop, even in human communication.
Robots are gradually entering every aspect of our lives. From industrial production to our everyday life, in our homes, even as home helpers.
Although we see the emergence of some amazing new technologies, most people are disappointed. The future is already here, it is not yet equally shared among all.
It will take several years to reach the penetration levels achieved by the smart mobile phone. To make this great penetration of the mobile phone one should not forget that first generation smart phones, like Blackberry, first appeared 30 years ago.
There is much discussion about the technology presented in various reports and when it will appear in mass form. For example, in the early stages, new technologies are in the hands of a few people. In the first decade, only a few people have new technology in their hands. Then, over the next decade, everyone is talking about it, but they have not acquired everything from what new technology has to offer, such as smart mobile, car, microwave. In the end, the new technology seems to be everywhere!
People communicate with each other using much more than words and we use words in a “funny” way. We can understand the intentions or actions of another person using intuition and experience. This type of thinking is impossible for robots; it is very difficult to develop.
Developing robots that the ones that can be found on universal-robots.com will be slower than people are afraid of. In order for robots to have a great impact on the world, we need to have a large number of them in use, and this requires increased processing, design, transport and maintenance.
As robots will penetrate into society and everyday life, many new jobs will be created and not necessarily all highly skilled jobs. Most robots need great service and care. And there will be many instances where robots can only work when people are employed as “robot guides”.
During the next generation, our robot life will have a similar impact with the impact of the power tools when they first appeared. The role of robots will be smarter power tools.
In the construction, just a few generations ago, carpenters and builders were climbing up scaffolding and manually doing all the work using hand tools.
Then, with the appearance of power tools, work was much easier, but the workers still needed to climb the scaffold. With smarter power tools such as robots, workers can stay on the ground and control cleaning a building or carpentry from a distance. Robots are very useful when they gradually improve human working conditions.
