Robots relieve a person from heavy and monotonous work and provide them with an opportunity to engage in creative work. Robots "are getting smarter" and come into those areas where their application only yesterday seemed unthinkable. Today, robots are able to perform surgery, answer the phone, engage in office administration and more.
Robotics at a glanceThere is no world statistics on industrial robotics use in production yet. For example, according to the American Association of Industrial Robotics, after the economic disasters in 2008, from 2011 to 2012 the number of robots engaged in production increased by 17%. According to some reports, in Japan for every 10,000 workers there are 300 robots. The record holders seem to be South Korea: there are 350 robots for every 10,000 workers. However, this figure is constantly changing. It is believed that in China in industrial production, the robots used are three times less than in the U.S. or Germany. But the demand for robot technology in China is actively promoted by the government and is growing at a crazy pace - up to 25% annually. And this process will continue for at least another 10-20 years.
ForecastWhat kind of future awaits us with the widespread introduction of robotics in manufacturing and in life? Estimates of futurologists differ. Undoubtedly here's one. The scope of application of robotics is expanding and the technique itself improving. Some experts say that by 2018 some office professions may have disappeared. For example, right now, IBM is introducing technology, where the role of the clerk of the support system is done with artificial intelligence. Such systems can successfully replace secretaries, operators, call-centres and a number of specialists. This suggests that the tendency towards "extinction" is observed not only among working class professionals. Even workers in "mid-level" roles are already coming under attack.Thus, by 2025, when, according to the same forecast, machines may enter into such areas, which today we do not even suspect.
