Robotic Machines have been around since 1948, when the first robot was invented by William Grey Walter. The first ever robot to function properly was the Unimate. General Motors installed the first robotic machine to work in their factory in 1961. This robot's designed job was to move hot pieces of metal. This took many people out of work due to the fact that the machines could do the dangerous and hard jobs with no injury.
Since the first robot was invented and placed in a work environment 14% of workers say that their jobs have been replaced by a robot since 2021. In 2022 the automation of America lost over 75 million jobs. This is because Automation created 133 million jobs by the beginning of 2022. By 2025 the estimated number of jobs controlled by machines will reach tp 97 million.
These machines have caused many problems with workers.The workers feel like they are taking more jobs away from the people. Others think that this will be a more effective way to run companies. Some advantages to machines are they increase efficiency and productivity. They reduce error, reduce risk rates, and improve safety for employees in high risk or dangerous work environments. Robots also improve organization and are cost effective for the workplace. This is because they will not need to take lunch breaks, holidays, sick leave or changing shift times.
Although some people like these robotic machienes others would disagree. These machines have caused many job losses or potential job losses in the future. These machines can also cause high cost of implementation, thinking and doing something without having to be programmed. Robots can also be at risk of cyber problems and data protection. These machines are connected to the whole environment causing hackers to better be able to hack into important information. The Autonomous Robots also take time to charge and move slower and can have machine errors.
In my opinion I do not think that These robots or any type of autonomous Machines should be part of our society. They take jobs away from the people and that could cause a lot of problems such as unemployment.
Do you think we should replace human workers with Machines?
Do you think that by 2030 there will be Machines/Robots running everything?
