• Almost all cases humans are less efficient than robots in performing many tasks productively and efficiently.
  • There is currently a lack of regulation in the area of AI, which leads to challenging ethical concerns. By offloading the decision-making to machines, humans run the risk of losing control.
  • Machines can lack human empathy and emotional understanding that can prove fatal if they are to be used in situations of combat and conflict.

  • Many corporations tend to surrender their full operations to AI and robotics as they are only focused on maintaining profit margins and do not want to lose their competitive edge.
  • Businesses feel that AI and robots perform better than humans in their productivity and efficiency and do not want to consider engaging with humans as an alternative due to cost concerns.
  • Many corporations are looking at the bottom line and following the trend in developing AI, robotics-based solutions without thinking long term consequences.

  • AI and robotics stand to increase productivity at a much higher rate than is achievable by humans. This threatens to displace millions of jobs and will have a big impact on the future of employment.
  • Older employees and those with disabilities can be better integrated into the work processes if robots are used to carry out menial tasks and this can prove to be a step in the right direction globally.
  • There could be widening wage gaps between low-income job holders and those who are involved in highly intellectual and creative positions.

  • Regroup work roles to ensure that humans supervise the work processes of robots and AI.
  • Deliver courses and curriculum to enable individuals to be more adaptable to their designated roles at work.
  • Draw out strong regulations on how AI and robots should be used and their role in decision-making.
