Guide to answer
advantages: reduce workforce in industries, help doctors to do surgery and do research
disadvantages: become useless by power failure, attached and taken control of by hackers leading to the misuse of robotic devices.
– benefits: reducing the workforce in industries, helping doctors do surgery and research
– disadvantages: become useless due to power failure, sticky and controlled by hackers leading to misuse of robotic devices
Intelligent Robots play a vital role in modern days. Besides benefits, we must consider disadvantages when using them.
First, look at the most positive points. Thanks to robots and AI technology, the number of workforce can be reduced but the production even increases more, especially in the manufacturing industry. The robots can perform the tasks faster than the humans and much more consistently and accurately. They can work at places 24/7 without any salary and food. Also, they don’t get bored. In medicine, they help doctors to diagnose diseases, do the surgery, especially tiny surgery with highest accuracy. In some hospitals, the robotic pets can help the patients with depression and they keep them active.
On the contrary, robots bring about some troubles. First and for most, training is needed to operate the system, so we need to pay for scientists and trainees, maintenance and reparation expenditures, which raise the cost overall. Another point I’d like to is the machine malfunction, which creates lots of troubles and confusions, and even sometimes lead to unexpected accidents. It’s reported that a robot in a car manufacturing factory killed a worker. This results in a worrisome of people using AI for medical purposes. Furthermore, the robots are not able to act any different from what they are programmed to do. With the heavy application of robots, the humans may become overly dependent on the machines, losing their mental capacities. If the control of robots goes in the wrong hands, the robots may cause the destruction.
In conclusion, I suppose that we need to take advantages of AI to make our life better, but remember its dangers and risks to take precaution timely.
Intelligent robots play an important role in today’s modern times. In addition to the benefits, we must consider the disadvantages of using them.
First, let’s look at the most positive points. Thanks to robotics and AI technology, the number of workers may be reduced, but productivity can increase even more, especially in the manufacturing industry. Robots can perform tasks faster than humans and more consistently and accurately. They can work in locations 24/7 without needing a paycheck or food. Also, they don’t get bored. In medicine, they help doctors diagnose diseases, surgery, especially minor surgery with the highest accuracy. In some hospitals, robotic pets can help depressed patients and keep them active.
In contrast, robots create some trouble. First of all, training is needed to operate the system, so we need to pay scientists and trainees, maintenance and repair costs, which increases the overall cost. One point I would like to mention is mechanical breakdown, which creates a lot of trouble, and even sometimes leads to unexpected accidents. It has been documented that a robot in a car factory kills a worker. This leads to a concern of people using AI for medical purposes. Furthermore, the robots cannot act differently from what they are programmed to do. With the application of many robots, humans can become too dependent on machines, losing their mental abilities. If the control of the robot goes in the wrong direction, the robots can cause destruction.
In conclusion, I think we need to take advantage of AI to make our lives better, but keep in mind its dangers and risks to take timely precautions.
