Forget Dystopia, Instead Robots Need Humans in Future to Live

Nowadays people fear a robotech driven dystopian society, rather they should realize that Robots require Humans much more than the other way round

Technology is becoming more and more integrated into our homes and everyday life, but as these advancements become more complex, with researchers even attempting to imitate the brain’s functions, could a future super-robot pose a threat to humans? In theory, the intelligent robot is the ultimate labor-saving gadget, and anything that decreases our workload appeals to us. Nevertheless, there is always the concern that machines should not acquire too much intelligence for fear of complete takeover.

While we’re talking about AI and robotics, there’s nothing like being served by someone who sincerely wants to help. There have been attempts to build space between brands and customers for years, which is one of the reasons we’re so excited about robotics, automation, and self-service technologies, as dealing with customers at times can be costly, resource depleting, and time-demanding. But, first, let’s talk about robots and automation. Would you like a robot to make a critical medical decision for you? Would you like to witness a cast of robots perform for you in a theater? Let’s talk about what robots can’t do and how to discard this dismal vision of the future in which people are no longer useful.

Machines will not be able to destroy man for long as we remember that machines are here to help us. Would you trust something that doesn’t have the same ability to interpret events, actions, or tones as a human? Machines are at our disposal. That is how it should always be. It won’t bode well when we let technology run amok without much supervision or intervention from humans.

Many people bang their phones against the ground because an IVR doesn’t grasp what they want or it doesn’t fulfill their request. Because you’re dealing with human emotions, customer service can be a difficult business. And that’s the hazy area here. Robots are unable to consider feelings in the same way that humans can.

There’s nothing like talking to someone who has been through something similar to what you have gone through and sharing experiences. This relationship is necessary and very much desired by humans as this is how we were designed to share and connect with each other, through sympathy and empathy. That’s what makes humans distinct from Robots. It doesn’t help you in feeling better if a robot says, “I’m sorry for your difficulties, I can imagine you’re really upset,” since the robot isn’t being genuine. It’s a machine. There is no such thing as a soul or feelings in it.

It’s good to be greeted with a smile and some assistance after a long day of travel. Robots will never be able to care for you in the same way that your loved ones can, and they will never be able to replace them.

Consistently positive behavior from both parties establishes trust. A robot does not have a moral compass; instead, it is equipped with only a machinery compass. Relationships have many intricacies that intelligent robots will never be able to mimic in their interactions with humans.

A robot will never be able to be creative or think critically. The patient experience can be shaped by a good doctor who knows how to speak in a direct but compassionate manner. No one prefers robots performing all the procedures and offering diagnoses to patients. The empathetic element can be provided only by a human.

Even for the “intelligent” machines or robots to fulfill their basic tasks, a human is required to feed the data into the system, so that the machine can run analytics on it. Without a human to fill the nuances of a machine, the machine will eventually be rendered useless.

With an apocalyptic vision of the planet, our world seemed to be becoming increasingly bizarre these days. Caring for one another, and focusing less on money would benefit us all. Let us take a step back and assess the usage of artificial intelligence and robots. Robots will never be able to completely replace us until we lose our humanity.
