According to a recent report by the Pew Research Center, our views of robots and automation are more positive than negative. More than three-quarters of Americans (76%) think that these new tools will be helpful for society. Even younger Americans are more inclined to view robotics positively than older people are.
So can robots change waiters? Many may worry that robotic technology will only replace human servers. In fact, this is far from the truth. If we could get rid of waiters in our restaurants or hotel rooms, the result would not be a bad one.
For starters, the ability to replace human waiters with robots would create more demand for waiters. The more human waiters there are available, the more it becomes difficult for a restaurant to operate on a cash basis. With more people wanting to dine out, the menus must change. The more the menu changes, the more confusing the customers are likely to become.
However, with robot servers, the menus do not have to change. This means that the customer does not need to become overwhelmed by the changing menu. They can just go to the counter and order a burger or taco. The human staff member will take care of serving the customer.
However, with robot servers, the human employees will still need to show up and work at all hours of the day and night. If they do not have enough customers, then their income is reduced. This is why it is important to have enough employees for each restaurant.
As a result, more people would be interested in hiring robot servers in order to avoid human waiters in the future. As a result, restaurants would become more profitable.
Humans will also be replaced by robots in some industries. For example, in today’s society, people are now employed doing a variety of service-related jobs. However, these people may soon be replaced by robots.
Some say that medical device manufacturers are on the verge of releasing a robotic surgeon. This will allow surgeons to perform operations without any employees being present.
It is also possible that robots will be used in nuclear medicine. Machines will be used to sanitize blood samples and perform other important functions. These machines may be able to replace doctors entirely.
Robots and research robots will also be used to perform certain jobs that require long-term attention. For example, research scientists are using robotic and artificial intelligence technologies to perform certain research tasks. Many of these scientists may not be replaced by robots altogether, but their tasks may be taken over by machines.
Robots will change many things about American culture. While we don’t have yet a robot as good as a real wait staff, the future is bright for robotic technology. Future generations may look back at the present era and be very amazed by our modern era and wonder how it was possible that we were able to completely change American culture.
