Will Robots Take Over Your Job?
There was a time when humans couldn't fly, now we have airplanes and helicopters, hot air balloons, parachutes for para-sailing, etc. There was no such thing as internet, people sailed across seas and traveled on far lands to explore and gain knowledge. Communication was the most difficult, it would take days for a letter to be delivered and now you get a reply within seconds! Technology is the most unpredictable inventions of all. You don't know what will the human kind be presented with in future or even tomorrow.
Have you seen the movie ‘Charlie And The Chocolate Factory'? Where charlie's father was replaced with a machine to put the caps on toothpaste. Similarly man labor is being replaced with robots in real life. A new sort of convenience store opened in the basement of the headquarters of Amazon in Seattle in January. Customers walk in, scan their phones, pick what they want off the shelves and walk out again. At Amazon Go, there are no checkouts and no cashiers. Instead, it is what the tech giant calls "just walk out" shopping, made possible by a new generation of machines that can sense which customer is which and what they are picking off the shelves. Within a minute or two of the shopper leaving the store, a receipt pops up on their phone for items they have bought.

Automation, driven by technological progress, has been increasing inexorably for the past several decades. Many great leaders and thinkers have for many years been engaged in a debate about the potential effects of automation on jobs, employment and human activity: Will new technology spawn mass unemployment, as the robots take jobs away from humans? Or will the jobs robots take over release or unveil – or even create – demand for new human jobs?
Change is always disruptive but the upheaval likely as a result of the next wave of automation will be especially marked. Driverless cars, for instance, are possible because intelligent machines can sense and have conversations with each other. They can do things – or will eventually be able to do things – that were once the exclusive preserve of humans. That means higher growth but also the risk that the owners of the machines get richer and richer while those displaced get angrier and angrier.
If taking in consideration of the possibility of an AI going rogue, or in clear statement ‘outsmart humans' and take over everything, as AI is internet based, which is practically everywhere now and controls almost everything. It is for sure, humans create robots to ease up the work and make it more efficient, instead what if robots REPLACE humans? Only time can tell. But we should think and act soon, as robots are in the picture now already and things can go south anytime.
