Answering my main inquiry question was a tough process. Doing all of the research to answer your sub questions was not easy. One part that made it hard was when you researched a certain question there where sometimes not a website that connects with your question. That was not the only part that made it hard it was also hard to find a book that goes with your topic. When I could not find anything that had to do with one of my questions I told my mom and she helped me out by asking people she knows and they helped me out. My main inquiry question is:
What will Robots Be able to do in the Future?
This my answer:
Are you interested in robotics and their future? Then you came to the right place. In this essay you will learn about robots and their future. I will be answering my main inquiry question, “What will robots be able to do in the future?”
“What effect will robots have in the future?” One way to answer that is robots are going to have a big impact on the elderly in the future. One example according to newsroom.cisco.com aa news website,”Robots are finding their way more and more into nursing homes. By 2030, the number of elderly in the world will double from 600 million today, while a shortage of caregivers for the elderly will also rise dramatically. Last year, robots were tested at a nursing home in Florence, Italy and were programmed for such tasks as accompanying the elderly to the dining room to reminding them when to take their medications. Filippo Cavallo is a professor at the BioRobotics Institute near Pisa where he founded Robot-Era that makes robots that move around on wheels but have a friendly humanoid face. Cavallo says the robot’s sensors and cameras are used to gather – and analyze – real-time data that’s sent to the cloud wirelessly where algorithms extrapolate such advanced information as whether someone is showing signs of dementia. The robots can also remind seniors about daily tasks and retaining important information such as phone number or names, all while tracking the senior’s progress or loss of memory over time.” This shows robots are coming close to being developed enough to help the elderly.
Another way that answers the question “what effects will robots have in the future?” Is robots are expected to be doctors in the future. One detail according to Shelly Palmer a news company, “may be one of the only guaranteed positive outcomes of robots’ taking human jobs. The current world population of 7.3 billion is expected to reach 8.5 billion by 2030, 9.7 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion in 2100, according to a new UN DESA (United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs) report. In practice, if everyone who ever wanted to be a doctor became one, we still would not have enough doctors.The good news is that robots make amazing doctors, diagnosticians and surgeons. According to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, IBM’s Watson is teaming up with a dozen US hospitals to offer advice on the best treatments for a range of cancer, and also helping to spot early-stage skin cancers. And ultra-precise robo-surgeons are currently used for everything from knee replacement surgery to vision correction. This trend is continuing at an incredible pace. I’m not sure how robodoc bedside manner will be, but you could program a “Be warm and fuzzy” algorithm and the robodoc would act warm and fuzzy. (Maybe I can get someone to program my human doctors with a warm and fuzzy algorithm?) This shows that robots are going to have a good effect in the future if this all actually happens. The final way that answers the question “what effect will robots have in the future?” Is them being bookkeepers/librarians. One detail is according to the Wall Street Journal a newspaper company,”Data processing probably created more jobs than it eliminated, but machine learning–based accountants and bookkeepers will be so much better than their human counterparts, you’re going to want to use the machines. Robo-accounting is in its infancy, but it’s awesome at dealing with accounts payable and receivable, inventory control, auditing and several other accounting functions that humans used to be needed to do. Big Four auditing is in for a big shake-up, very soon.” This shows that if robots become bookkeepers it would be easier to find books.
What jobs will robots take in the future? One way that answers this question is Middle Management. One detail is according to Shelly Palmer,”If your main job function is taking a number from one box in Excel and putting it in another box in Excel and writing a narrative about how the number got from place to place, robots are knocking at your door. Any job where you’re “special and unique” knowledge of the industry is applied to divine a causal relationship between numbers in a matrix is going to be replaced first. Be ready.” This shows that robots are coming for this job. Another way that answers this question is Commodity Salespeople. One detail is, “Unless you sell dreams or magic or negotiate using special perks, bribes or other valuable add-ons that have nothing to do with specifications, price and availability, start thinking about your next gig. Machines can take so much cost out of any sales process (request for proposal, quotation, order and fulfillment system), it is the fiduciary responsibility of your CEO and the board to hire robots. You’re fighting gravity … get out!” This shows that salesmen better come up with some protest because robots are coming. The last way is Report Writers, Journalists, Authors & Announcers. The final detail is, “Writing is tough. But not report writing. Machines can be taught to read data, pattern match images or video, or analyze almost any kind of research materials and create a very readable (or announceable) writing. Text-to-speech systems are evolving so quickly and sound so realistic, I expect both play-by-play and color commentators to be put out of work relatively soon – to say nothing about the numbered days of sports or financial writers. You know that great American novel you’ve been planning to write? Start now, before the machines take a creative writing class.” This shows that robots are going to be a huge a upgrade over humans so they are already working on it.
In conclusion robots have some good things that they will do in the future and some things we might want to prevent. The question what will robots be able to do in the future? Is still a question that has not been answered but there have been some very good predictions based on what is happening now in robotics. I think my question is being very close to being answered because engineers are very close to being done with a bunch of robots designs. Robotics is something you should really consider researching because it might help you in the future and not only that but it is very interesting and you can learn how to make one along the way.
