Do you trust A.I?
“Hasta La Vista Baby” is what the Cyberdine next generation Terminator robot said after it developed some basic AI skills. James Cameron who produced the blockbuster Terminator movies in the 1980’s and 90’s touched a nerve in many to warn us of the dangers of Artificial Intelligence.
Many believe that the simple integration of robots into our daily existence to do the mundane tasks most humans hate doing, is an unconscious and slow method of infiltrating our very society and the rise of the robots is Imminent
The analysis, by accounting and consulting firm P.W.C., emphasized that its estimates are based on the anticipated capabilities of robotics and artificial intelligence, and that the pace and direction of technological progress are “uncertain.”
Examples of A.I.’s progress are visible everywhere, with robots that can create a gourmet hamburger in 10 seconds and could soon replace an entire McDonald’s crew. A manufacturing device from Universal Robots doesn’t just solder, paint, screw, glue, and grasp—it builds new parts for itself on the fly when they wear out or bust.
In hospitals, robots have been delivering trays of food and drugs, cleaning linens, and carting away garbage since as early as 1992.
There is, for example, McKesson ROBOT-Rx. It is a robotic system intended for automated medication processing. It automates medication storage, selection, return, restock and crediting functions.
It is apparent that more than 1/3 of all hospitals in North America use their robotic system. So it is quite widespread. That is not without a reason. Hospitals can reduce errors and costs, as well as enhance productivity by using a Pharmacy robot.
At a well known home-improvement store, the customer-service robot, which stands about 4 feet tall, can shows customers where items are throughout the store. Amazon, which uses 15,000 robots in its warehouses to keep up with customers’ orders.
The robots, called “actroids,” manufactured by robot maker Kokoro, responsible for greeting and checking in guests, all the while establishing eye contact and responding to body language–and three of the 10 robots are multilingual..
More than a third of U.S. jobs could be at “high risk” of automation by the early 2030s, a percentage that’s greater than in Britain, Germany and Japan, according to a report released Friday.
It said that in the U.S., 38% of jobs could be at risk of automation, compared with 30% in Britain, 35% in Germany and 21% in Japan. The main reason is not that the U.S. has more jobs in sectors that are universally ripe for automation, the report says; rather, it’s that more U.S. jobs in certain sectors are potentially vulnerable than, say, British jobs in the same sectors.
Protagonists on the other hand are foretelling that jobs will just change, the energy just shifts from one sector to another. Who would have even known what a Digital Marketing consultant was in 1985, yet in 2017 O Desk one of the top freelancing websites will not take any more on as It says there are too many.
in a recent study by Forbes they predict the health care and Technology sectors to manage the robot tech and for the people to real people experience to blossom over the next 20 years, especially with an aging population in 3rd world countries. Nurses, retail sales people, home health visitors, customer Service reps for when a robot is just not coping. Good news for the Philippines.
If, for example you could have a robot pick your stocks based on the top technology and no be prone to human emotions it would be a good buy. Sure Human emotions work well most of the time, but sometimes they can act on a ‘bad day’ and get it catastrophically wrong!
