Humans or Machines? Meet The Life-Like Robots That Will Steal Your Job

Robots are taking over

Robots are taking over millions of jobs in UK and it won’t be long before they take over the world. If you are earning less than £30,000 a year, you are likely to lose your job. In US, most of the labor market are being mechanized and automated out of existence.

The jobs that are most likely to go are: administrative services, clerical work, customer service, construction, mining and other jobs with menial tasks.

Of course, we’re expecting the Japanese to be the world’s top manufacturer of androids. These eerie android prototypes were featured in Tokyo Design Expo and are being prepared for commercialisation.

Meet the human-like androids that will steal your job and probably invade your home in a not too distant future.

Kodomoroid is a teleoperated android robot resembling a human child. It is an android announcer with potential exceeding that of its human equivalent. It can recite news reports gathered from around the world 24 hours a day, every day, in a variety of voices and languages. In the studio set up in Tearoom of Zero/One on the third floor, you can watch her deliver news about global issues and space weather reports.

Kodomoroid, with its close resemblance to a human child and detached voice, continuously recites world news. It is a work of art of sorts which asks profound questions about humanity’s future.

The safest jobs are in the industry of arts, healthcare, education, law and sciences. UK reassured the public that for every job lost, one is created. Employees need to learn new skills that machines are unable to match. This also suggests that millennials should pursue a career in these industries, for it’s the only way to survive.

According to research, when these machines take over our jobs, we’ll be the 1% of the population. Sooner or later, they will also invade our homes.
