As we develop robots with more capabilities we find more and more jobs outside the factory floor that can be handled (in part) by robots.
Check out this video of the Semi-Autonomous Mason (SAM) brick-laying robot at work! 3000 bricks a day!
It only does part of the job, and requires supervision as well as the human touch to follow up. But it means that a mason can produce more and better work by working with the robot as a tool, than working alone.
As I discussed in an earlier post Robots need to ‘earn their pay’ to be effective. This often means taking over the dull, dirty, or dangerous parts of a job, to enable the people to focus on what people do best.
