Introduction to Robotic Revolution
The Robot Revolution has been carried out for decades and transforming jobs in the Workplace, Health Care and Manufacturing Units Etc. The Speedy rise of robots will not only drastically revolutionize the Workforce but can also work alongside people. Robots can work more efficiently & precisely but certain jobs still require a certain level of Creativity, Emotional and Social Intelligence. Human interference is required in this case and cannot be relied on Machines.
Below is one example where Robots welcome guests at the new eatery in Hyderabad. Also, the Restaurant serves the food to customers through robots. Slowly Robotics is evolving in India and in near future robots may soon run the luxurious hotels also.
Driving force of the Robot Revolution
Asia is leading the way for Robotic Revolution. These are the listed top five Major Markets in the world representing 73% of the Total Sales volume in the year 2017: China, Japan, South Korea, the United States, and Germany. China is by far has the biggest Robotics market followed by South Korea and Japan.
As per the Latest reports, Japan wants to generate almost $22 billion in sales from Robotics by 2020. Japanese Society is welcoming to use different kinds of robots in Homes, Hospitals, Hotels Etc.
China is looking to get recognized globally by establishing at least three Chinese firms by 2020. On one hand, it is offering billions of amounts in subsidies to local companies to start with Robotics and on the other hand, it is eying to become a global leader by supplying robots to the world.
South Korea invests a lot in the Robotics industry. On Average, they have 386 robots per 10,000 people when compared with the rest of the World. Thailand has identified robotics as one of the top sectors to take its economy forward. Singapore Government launches many programs every year with Millions of amounts for the local companies to adopt Robotics while Robotics in India is developing through entrepreneurship and start-ups. All the money invested in robotics is self-funded, Private equity or Venture Capital.
Global Industrial Robot Sales
IFR (International Federation of Robotics) shows that the global industrial robot sales doubled over the past five years and Global sales likely to increase by +14% every year on average. In the Year 2018, Japan Produced the highest number of robots whereas China has the highest Sales Volume with very strong demand.
Advantages and Disadvantages of having Robots in Workplace
Robots are used in the Manufacturing sector only but from a few years, they are seen in many workplaces. Let us discuss on Pros & Cons of Robots Revolutionizing Jobs especially in the Workplace.
1.Robots never get bored or tired and can perform the assigned tasks very accurately at very high speeds.
2.They can work in any harsh conditions like Extreme heat, cold or underwater whereas human beings work only in a protected environment.
3.They are programmed by humans and so they can be used for any hazardous or dangerous work. For example, we can send them to the deep sea, Space, War zones, etc.
1.With the increase of robots and their efficiency in many businesses, they are also increasing the unemployment rate in Manufacturing plants, workplaces, etc.
2.Robots work only on the tasks for which they were instructed and cannot handle unforeseen situations.
3.Robots don’t have any empathy. This is a major disadvantage as it would be an emotionless workplace.
Above are a few advantages and disadvantages of robotic revolution at the work
5 Major Industries that will be impacted by Robots
Based on the reports by Market Research firms, below are the major 5 ways by which Robots are revolutionizing Jobs
- Military and Defence – When a person thinks about robots revolutionizing jobs, the most common thought would be of Military or Defence industries. Using the Military Artificial Intelligence, robots are designed to handle tasks from picking up snipers to carrying out target acquisition with greater efficiency.
Robots are also used for risk assessment by dropping them into burning buildings or hostage Situations.
- Health Care and Medical Industry – Robots have been playing a very key role in the Health care industry. Medical robots are aiding Complicated Surgical procedures with greater accuracy, increasing efficiency within pharmacies.
Da Vinci Surgical System currently dominates the Market. It is designed to perform a complex surgery that is controlled by the surgeon from a console. All these factors are showing the way for hospital automation.
- The Manufacturing Industry – Industrial robots were first used in this industry back in 1961 which does repetitive and menial tasks. Thereafter, robots are now evolved to the point where they are now more efficient than unskilled labor.
Robots are increasing more productivity by working along with people and thereby revolutionizing the Manufacturing industry.
- The Mining Industry – It is now completely depending on Technology and Advanced Robotics. These type of robots does a preliminary search or survey and compile important information about the mines. This helps to provide a safe work environment for other human miners.
Robot operated drills can conduct drilling very deep inside the earth allowing mining companies to choose over human force.
- Agriculture Industry – Robots which does the farming exist in huge numbers but the upcoming agricultural robots will have an increased level of Artificial intelligence and more innovative machines that are designed with greater efficiency.
Farming robots will make an impact on the labor force eliminating job opportunities but creating new opportunities in Programming.
Robots are now playing a huge part in the world and they are becoming more and more popular in every aspect of our daily lives. Looking at the potential impact on various industries the ways in which robotics are revolutionizing jobs, it may not be possible to imagine a market without the power of robotics in the near future.
Possibilities in robotics innovation appear to be endless. However, it is important for us to understand both the possibilities and limitations of robots to use the technology to the highest potential in the future.
