Question of the Week #32 – 2013: Future Technology

How will androids and robots impact the job market and our lives?

My two cents (but please share yours):

In the near future, androids and robots will take on the repetitive and often unpleasant tasks. Human beings will perform the tasks that require thinking, human interactions, and creativity.

I believe product quality will increase and manufacturing costs will decrease. As profits (and individual wealth) go up, more jobs suitable for humans will likely be created.

Since the androids and robots will handle the nastier jobs, humans will have more pleasant jobs as well as working and home environments. For example, imagine cooking a gourmet dinner then your android cleans up the kitchen for you.
