The coverage about the future of robotics has mostly been negative focusing mostly on how it could be a threat to human jobs and how robots might eventually take over and humans would become the subservient ones.
We will lose a significant percentage of jobs, but that does not mean that robots and automation are entirely bad. They hold a very important place in the modern industry. AI will eliminate many traditional jobs, but that’s not to say that humans will not adapt and create more creative, meaningful work.
Robots will transform, not replace, human work.
Contrary to the perception, the future is about people. The value of machines and technology is in the knowledge that we as humans embed in them and how we interact with them. However, we need a future-ready workforce, ready to embrace a data-driven world in partnership with robotics. The idea that technology will replace the need for creative thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, leadership is far-fetched. It is humans that can leverage technology, be in control and the technology provides what it is programmed to.
