In this modern era scientists do many experiment including the making of robots to fasilitate the wok. With human robots can more easily do the job. But the robots could also threaten the workers. Namely the use of robots in modern companies the firm does not recuire many workers. Wheter you agree with the creation of robots, and explain your opinion of it.

Robots are useful in manufacturing no doubt. Robots produce a standard product at a consistent level. The very definition of mass production. The modern world was built on mass production. The world we live in was made possible by robots. Robots will not replace people. Robots will need people to repair them and to keep them functioning. The benefits of robots will be to allow man to spend time on intellectual pursuits. The challenge of for society will be to make retraining and learning new skills affordable for the displaced workers.

This is a sad state of affairs! Robots do seem to be taking over and a lot of people are losing their jobs. This is the state of technology though, it's going to constantly improve and robots will eventually become more life like and there's nothing to stop this from happening. I think that us humans can only adapt to what will eventually transpire. I do love technology so I guess I love the whole robot idea. I don't know how it feels to be replaced by a robot though as this has never happened to me. I am interested to see what will take place within the next twenty to thirty years, hopefully I'm still alive by then. Andrew

I worked in manufacturing for 12 years. I built and traveled to the customers site and installed assembly lines for the auto industry! This includes the tooling, transfer systems, the robotics, weld units, and everything else! The robots are programed to do specific tasks. They do replace people, not necessarily for the reason you may think. they do better quality work, and don't take unnecessary breaks. But these robots require maintenance, and programing. The maintenance is a lot more than people require. LOL! The programing is also not a one time thing, they have to touch up the programs about every 2 weeks due to wear in the joints and servo motors! It kind of turns about a wash on threatening the worker, yes that worker will be replaced but it will take .75 workers to replace him or her! I put a line in Flint Michigan this line replaced 27 workers, but I had to train 21 workers for the programing, and maint.! tdemex
