I drew only one logical conclusion after looking at this clever robot, FRIDA, for a while. and what it is capable of: one day gadgets like these will replace the millions of Chinese young men who work every day at the assembly line at inhuman prices to assemble balls, hats, mp3 players.
FRIDA it is a very agile and unique robot, equipped with two mechanical arms perfectly adaptable to the work environments already set up to accommodate human beings, and can be easily installed (it can be transported with a simple handle, like a suitcase).
So I started thinking: What if robots like this replaced human workers? In particular, I began to think of the millions of Chinese young people who work on assembly lines every day. They work long hours for low pay and it's not a sustainable way to live. But what if a skilled robot could do their job? In this way, companies would not be forced to resort to child labor to assemble their products. That's why I think robots could replace human workers in many industries.
Skillful and how: for 3 reasons
The first reason is that robots don't need to take breaks. They can work for hours and hours without getting tired. Humans, on the other hand, need breaks every few hours. This is not practical for most companies
The second reason is that robots can be programmed to perform specific tasks. So if a company wants its robots to do a specific thing over and over again, it can program them to do it. Human workers can get bored doing the same task over and over again, with the risk of making mistakes. A skilled robot no.
The third reason is that robots are more accurate than humans. They do not make mistakes as often as humans because they are not subject to distractions or emotions
There are many reasons why robots could replace human workers in many industries. The three reasons I have listed above are just a few of the many why this could happen. Robots don't need breaks, can be programmed to perform specific tasks, and are more accurate than humans. These factors could lead to the replacement of human workers with robotics in many industrial sectors around the world.
FRIDA it does not need shifts in the relaxation room, paid holidays (even unpaid holidays) or extraordinary permits. Come to think of it, it doesn't even need cushions placed next to the machinery, it doesn't need anything. Not even of us? Banal. I smile :)
