So lately, I have been noticing that robots have become a much bigger thing on the news. they are being predicted to be used as replacements for humans in jobs ranging from manual – doctors in the not-so-far-away future.
The prospect of robots becoming a big part of our lives and taking our jobs really scares me. I don’t really see many pro’s to robot workers, surely it would simply increase unemployment? Wouldn’t it also increase human laziness?
I also find it strange that we would want to create machines that could surpass our own intelligence. I understand in some circumstances having machines that are able to do things humans are unable to, could be really useful, however I don’t think it’s necessary for them to completely overrun the working world.
I feel like this new development would open up so many more problems than it would solutions. But maybe that’s just me.
