The robots are more precise and consistent than human workers. The machines also allow for increased production and profit margin because they can complete tasks faster. Robots can work 24 hours since they do not require vacations, sick days, or breaks. They also make fewer mistakes than humans, saving companies time.
In the medical field, robots are used for complex surgeries such as prostate cancer surgery. Robots can reach and fit where human hands cannot, allowing higher accuracy. Some benefits in the medical field are less invasive procedures and less painful for the patient when recovering.
Other benefits of robots are that they can work in any environment. Robots eliminate dangerous jobs for humans because they are capable of operating in hazardous conditions. They can lift heavy loads, manipulate toxic substances, and carry repetitive tasks. In this way, many companies prevent accidents, as well as saving time and money.
Robotics and automation grow at an exponential pace, and we must keep up with them. Today’s adults are not knowledgeable enough on this field, but that is not critical as they might not meet many robots in their lifetime. But for today’s children who are tomorrow’s adults, it’s an entirely different story. Robots will be 100% part of their life, and their jobs and wealth will depend 100% on their knowledge of robotics. We cannot stress enough how important is to teach robotics and prepare the kids for their future, especially when taking into account that Australia is already lagging behind countries like the US, China and Japan on this matter. Don’t play with your child’s fate! Get them to learn robotics now!
