The term ”robot” refers to appliances and machines that are monitored and controlled by a computer. They are used extensively to ease human workload. Robots are designed to perform repetitive chores quickly and efficiently as compared to human beings. Robots are used in various types of industries, as they help save on labor costs.
Industrial robots are commonly used to locate ships, control and clean nuclear waste, to discover and study underwater mineral deposits, and for volcanic examination. They are also used in space voyages and for the exploration and study of planets. In the medical field, industrial robots have been used to support surgeons and to assist with operations. Of late, robot technology has developed to the point where these appliances can operate on patients independently, with the doctor controlling it located in another part of the world.
Why Robots? You need to understand that no matter how good of training an employee gets or how tough the recruitment is people, in general, can hardly ever keep up one efficiency level; it either gets very good or very bad. But with machines you get only efficiency level. It works with whatever programs you write on it. The basic being for it to perform small, menial and repetitive tasks. When you do that you can use your employees for more strategic tasks. This integration would be a way to revolutionize your modus operandi so you may get the edge in the business world. Because business is fast moving and evolving market and you need to keep up or you may leave behind.
In addition to cost efficiency, high-tech training for certain manufacturing jobs would be very scarce to come by. The automated, hyper-efficient shop floors of modern manufacturing won’t give Trump much room to deliver on his promises to bring back millions of jobs for his blue-collar supporters. Instead of companies investing in robots to give them better returns in the future, they would have to invest in training programs to help accommodate workers that need the training for more complex jobs. Specifically, for more digitalized companies, the margin for investing in training compared to that of robotic costs would be very high, to the point where it wouldn’t even make much sense to invest in job-specific training.
The Washington Post reported that over the last 10 years the United States lost more than a quarter of its manufacturing jobs. Although we are all aware it’s cheaper to manufacture products overseas, Washington Post reporter Peter Whoriskey explains that Asia is producing an ever-increasing workforce armed with engineering doctorates. China and other Asian countries are also flowing millions of dollars into high tech research in order to compete with the tech industry in the United States. For example, over the last 10 years China doubled the number of engineering doctorates awarded.
