A world of Robots doing various human activities

A world of Robots doing various human activities

Robots have been the stuff of sci-fi for nearly 100 years now. There’s something inherently fascinating about something that moves like a human, or thinks like a human, and isn’t one. Robots will become a bigger part of our lives, and a much bigger part of the way we think about the world, and about the big changes we’re seeing in the economy. Robotics technology is advancing in a way that robots are going to take over most labor jobs. Robots can be: drivers, astronauts, soldiers, babysitters and rescuers.

Time saving robots is here to lend you a hand. With advancements in technology, robots have started to replace humans like never before. Be it serving food in restaurants or working in fields, humanoid robots are today capable of doing everything that would have once remained only a figment of our imagination. 

Robots – ranging from giant welding machines in car plants to 3D printers – are currently used in only 10 per cent of the manufacturing jobs that they could perform. Within a decade that figure will rise to 25 per cent, according to the Boston Consulting Group (BCG). Take a look at the photos below featuring robots working as waiters, scientists, cooks, rickshaw pullers and other roles you would normally associate with humans.

There’s the science and engineering challenge of making an ‘autonomous robot, a robot that can do things for itself, run for that length of time in an environment it has no control over. Normally when you put robots into places you have to control everything, to tie things down, make sure nobody gets in the robot’s way. You want to be able to make a robot cope in a real human environment. Let’s see! This issue could be resolved in future due to the technology advancement.
