The Robots Are Here, Are You Replaceable

Old 3 Comments on The Robots Are Here, Are You Replaceable 91
The day many have wondered and dreamed about has come and gone and not many have noticed.  The day we will have robot workers.  Are you laughing?  Check the industrial and automotive industry.

Or if you want a closer look, let’s examine ‘self-checkout’ or ATMs; two things that have been here for over two decades.  The robots are here and are upgrading and enhancing our lives.

The following is for entertainment, but how far off is it? 2075? (I want her battery, seriously.)

What are your thoughts on robots taking jobs?  Examine and Discuss as this is affect not only jobs, but production and manufacturing in an entirely new level.
