With the use of robots in manufacturing now a fact of life, we are now moving towards a time in which the retail and service industries are replacing workers with robots as well. Whilst there are some clear benefits for employers, I feel that overall their use would be disadvantageous, particularly for consumers or employees.
Nowadays, we are in the fourth industrial revolution in which the retail and business are replacing workers with robot as well. While there are some benefits for employers, it also bring some drawbacks for the economy.
Ever since the inception of robot technologies, there has been an increase in the polarization of public opinion. Proponents of this advance affirm that its merits are of greater importance compared to the drawbacks as the development is conducive to various domains and humans’ lives. Nevertheless, I strongly contend that the drawbacks of this phenomenon are far more significant.
