Experiencing two industrial revolutions, human beings are living in a society that takes advantage of machines and technology to serve life. Even though it has been very progressive, the current robot has not been sufficiently sophisticated and flexible to completely replace all human work.
But it seems that the future is not far away. Recently at the re: MARS conference in Las Vegas, billionaire Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, himself performed a demonstration of the advancement of robotics .
The billionaire controls two humanoid robotic arms based on a set of sensor gloves, with such flexibility and sophistication that enough to hold things and play rubik.
Rubik's arm is played by Jeff Bezos.
Bezos's video posted on his Twitter. Connected to the sensor gloves, two arms can simulate every billionaire's hand movement in an extremely smooth and delicate way. Not only can he spin rubik, he can juggle a few balls between his hands, or play a game of inserting a disc into a cylinder - an action that requires a really sensitive arm to be able to do it.
It is known that the arm of HaptX - the company in Seattle - cooperates with Shadow Robot manufacturer, combining with sophisticated AI system called "tactile feedback". This system transforms the Bezos glove wearing not only to control the machine arm, but also responds to the feeling when the arm touches, helping the operator to work more easily.
HaptX tried to bring this achievement together with virtual reality technology, to create a training system for health, aerospace, and life.
Bezos shared that he expects it to be a mass technology within 10 years or less, allowing robots to handle things with the same dexterity as human hands, to improve productivity for warehouses. factory around the world.
At the present time, factories and other areas have applied robots, but still require people to stand out and control."This technology will solve problems in factories over the next 10 years," he said.
However, the replacement of robots also means that a part of humanity will lose their jobs. At this point, the billionaire did not give any comment. However, the fact that Amazon has been using a total of 800 robots in many warehouses.
In an interview with Reuters, Amazon shared 10 years from now that it will automate their entire system. The problem is that they have hundreds of thousands of employees who can be replaced, so this will be an unsolvable problem for socialists.
