IMPACTS OF ROBOTICS ON WORLD ECONOMY

A service robot is a robot that performs useful tasks for humans or equipment. It is used for commercial task, usually operated by a properly trained operator. Examples are cleaning robot for public places, delivery robots in offices or hospitals, fire fighting robot and surgery robot in hospitals.
Robots are also used for tasks considered to be too dangerous for humans. With this brief introduction of robot, we shall be considering some impacts of robots on world economy.
Robots Increase Productivity and Competitiveness: When used effectively, they enable companies to become or remain competitive. This is particularly important for small-to-medium sized (SME) businesses that are the backbone of both developed and developing country economies.
It also enables large companies to increase their competitiveness through faster product development and delivery.https://ifr.org/img/office/IFR_The_Impact_of_Robots_on_Employment.pdf
Job Creation: Many people fail to realize that robots are creating new, high paying jobs that require skilled workers. While it is true that robots are replacing low skilled workers and automating the tasks that they perform. Robots complement and augment labour, the future will be robots and humans working together

Would robots be cost effective if they did not kill many more jobs than they create?

Society can adapt to massive job loss. Culture can shift to become less reliant upon governments and the private sector for bread. Self sufficient farming and off grid living would become norms. The better suited people are to producing necessities like food and energy. The less they need jobs and working hours.

Of course the real issue is productivity advancing significantly thanks to technology and automation. While the tangible rewards are not equally or fairly distributed.

Robotics does the work that's been assigned within the programmed time period as per the design or the work allocated. This way the human work force usage is being much decreased. Robotics play a big role in the mass production as well as in the increased manufacturing to the fast moving World. By the time robotics affect the human living through job cuts, and to the development happening with time through automation governments should take necessary steps to keep the common people have the life.

I have seen many people argue that robots take over human jobs in some articles I have read and I so think as that. How do you talk about robots creating jobs? Robots are the major reason that there are job loss because they are multi tasked and can do many people's jobs in minutes. For example in a shoe making shop or cobler, some jobs are easily and neatly done by machines. This is same for other bigger organizations and banks. In a bank, the cashier might not need an assistant because the counter machine is there. I think robots is faster, it has its advantages and disadvantages and human loss of jobs is one disadvantages.

Robot are programmed and no matter how sophisticated they become can not replace human work force where human feelings/instincts are to be/ are needed, like in medicine robots can bring medicines/materials to patients but can't connect with the patient they way a nurse would.
Robots can be added help to human work force, more of a faster hand in labour in factories, delivery aids, run errands/message, no doubt it has a positive touch/influence on the economy

The human power that is still needed in powerful work and robots only helps to carry on the work neatly and the rest of the humans will make it better for jobs, I think robots cannot change the economy in other ways but only help lighter human jobs.
But this is also a lot of development about robots on the influence that will be needed, as you mentioned, and it is only an introduction, not operation, nothing more but with robots we can work faster in any field, including in hospitals which are widely used with technology robot.

The impact is the future, and what we could do with it. Right now it is quite important to realize that many things we build are still handmade, obviously we use machines for everything to build them but there are people working in factories, there are very few rare places that requires no person at all, tesla for example has only supervisors who check the robots and see if everything goes according to plan but they do not work on the car themselves.

This will get bigger, eventually we will reach to a level where people would actually be capable of not working on manufacturing jobs and machines will be capable of building everything with maybe few human supervisors and that's it. At that point what will humans do? What if eventually every job can be done with a robot? or a machine? How will we earn money?
