The robot at the construction testing site is somehow cute and hideous at the same time.
I agree Kateg! I thought the same!
I want this one when it is on the market:
Can you imagine how many could benefit from this type of technology:
This is what a lot of big company owners have been saying for many years - as well as a lot of analysts… automation is took over a lot of jobs once held by people. They also said that people who were blaming the loss of these jobs on immigrants was baseless and false. It’s their ignorance of automation and fear of strangers that causes them to lash out against immigrants. Look back at the auto industry as well as many manufacturing jobs. Many people lost their jobs to robots - even people like highly skilled welders. And this will only continue.
Ah but it’s not so much the immigration that’s the issue, it’s the lack of increased infrastructure to cope with the increased population that’s the big issue. Just to see a doctor has gone from waiting 3 days for an appointment to a week and now a month just in the past 5 years; schools are squeezing twice as many children into schools but no increase in teachers, less money to go round. Passengers on our local public transport has doubled but trains are still only 2 carriages long at peak times; bus routes have decreased would you believe…and the government want us to reduce to leave our cars at home and use public transport more…go figure
Everyone struggles including the immigrants and refugees. I had a few friends who’ve returned to their homeland because they actually found they were a lot worse off here
This is an older article about the many robots being used in our health system in Sask.
The auto industry is not in my area…but I have seen changes to those in Ontario and Quebec to automation. I think in all industries we will see more of this, especially in those repetitive or dangerous work areas.
The future of the house pet???
The fourth one is Robot Swarm construction…they believe these robots could do dangerous construction
areas…such as near water, or underwater,
