What Will Humans Do When Robots Will Be Doing Most Of Their Work?

We have grown up admiring and fantasizing over robotics. It only appears to be a dream come true now that robots are becoming a real thing. But with all the awe and admiration on one side – let’s think realistically. What well we (humans) be left to do with one robots take over most of the things we do on our day to day basis? Let’s explore.

How Have Robots Taken Over?

Over the years, we have seen robots slowly make their ways into our lives and take over things. By robots, we are of course referring to the latest advanced technology and the resulting products that have come out of it. Many things that our elders used to do on their own have been taken over by technology. Even the minimalist tasks like cleaning the house with a sweep have been replaced with a hover and writing hand letters has been replaced with social media.

How Will Robotics Continue To Evolve?

Scientists have predicted the evolution of robotics to be much greater in the coming years – meaning more of human tasks will be taken over by technologically controlled robots. You must have heard about the news of the self-driving delivery car. An automated car that arrives at your home with an oven hot pizza or Dunkin Donuts boxes right at your doorstep. It is all cool and trendy but what happens to the traditional pizza man and salesman delivery? This is a big question.

  1. Jobs Will Be Taken Over

If we want to look at the whole scenario realistically and practically – the fact that most of the jobs will indeed be taken over by robots is the biggest truth that lurks on our heads. This can lead to economic growth but will cause a great deflation as far as employment rate is concerned. Now how can a country or economy progress if a major part of its population is jobless is a question that is yet to be addressed by experts.

  1. Sit Around Idly

With nothing much left to do – all organizations, industries and households for that matter being taken care of by robots – there will only be one thing left to do for the people. They will end up sitting idly all day and night, with nothing to do and all the free time in the world at their feet. There are big chances that this lifestyle and a world like this will eradicate all charms of holidays or festivities because it is in fact the busy life that makes holidays and days off from work seem like a bliss.

  1. Make Efforts To Stay Healthy

The one thing that every living person will surely have to do is make great efforts to stay healthy and in good physical health. You cannot imagine people who sit idly with nothing to do and lack of physical activity being healthy in the long run. Staying in good health will definitely become a challenge that people will have to tackle.

What Is Net Neutrality And Why You Should Be Concerned?

Everyone loves the internet. You can be who you want, post whatever you like, download games and movies and you have freedom of speech.

At least, this was the basic purpose of net neutrality. It meant that the internet acted as a neutral entity to any business organization or any content posted.

The Concerning Factor about internet

In December 2017, FCC (Federal Communications Commission) passed a bill which attacks the basic principle of net neutrality.

What Does Internet Neutrality Mean?

It means that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) such as Comcast, Verizon, AT&T etc. will have absolute control.

They can start a paying scheme which can act as a filter. Of course, this would be beneficial to already established tech empires. They would have money to influence campaigns.

Imagine a scenario in which you started a business but your ISP starts demanding additional money from you, to give you preferential treatment. If you don’t give them more money, your website will lag.

Powerful conglomerates can pay the money. They can even pay to crush their competitors. Their websites will get loaded up in no-time but what about young emerging talent?

Facebook is an example of emerging talent which was just an idea in the vicinity of Mark Zuckerberg’s college room but due to net neutrality, it became famous and gradually defeated its opponent of that time, My Space.

 Why Should You Worry?                

Let’s say the ISP you are getting internet from is conservative in nature. If FCC gives absolute authority to ISP, the ISP will have the authority to block certain content.

In America, religious minorities are often persecuted. Previously, Internet neutrality was a means of freedom of expression for those minorities so that they could raise their voices.

With absolute authority into the hands of ISP, they get to decide which content to air and which not to.

Should Net Neutrality Be Voided?

Absolutely Not. Internet is a global network which should be given to everyone living on this planet, without any preferential treatment. If one strong group gets to influence the ISP of their region, freedom of speech would not be inculcated in its true sense.

Experts believe that this could start riots and hate crimes. Five fingers are not equal. The world is divided into conservatism and liberalism. With internet acting as a neutral source, both sides get to picture their side of story which helps clearing the minds of general public.

What Can You Do?

Congress has the powerful to overturn the decision of FCC. As a citizen, you can make a change which can help in betterment of internet.

You can request your local lawmakers to adopt the policy of “resolution of disapproval” The required resolution can overturn the decision of FCC to dismantle the rules of net neutrality.
