Robots have started to make their way into our society, possibly changing our future lives.

Robots have begun to make their way into our society in ways such as “Companies including Marble and Starship are developing “robots as a service” business models, whereby food delivery apps contract with the robot companies to perform their deliveries”.

Now, the City of San Francisco has begun to crack down on these robots and to limit them to be able to make deliveries for companies such as “Marble” and “Starships.” “Go to a mall and one may well find a security robot scooting around keeping an eye on things. Also, robot nurses roam the halls of hospitals. Autonomous drones fill the air. Next, the question is “How are we supposed to interact with these machines?” said Erick McCormick a columnist from The Guardian.

Robots have also begun to replace certain human jobs like making deliveries, factory jobs and personal robots. “For instance, in 2016, Honda teamed up with Narita International Airport to get Asimo to welcome and offer its hospitality to travelers. Meanwhile, Toshiba has designed a robot that can guide customers around busy retail outlets,” said Erick McCormick, a columnist from The Guardian.

Companies like Toshiba and Honda have already started to replace human jobs with robots, and these robots are able to offer more efficient and faster manufacturing, offer guidance and help to travelers and guide customers around a store. Some cons to the robots is the fact that they are simply not humans and will not be able to fully interact with humans just like other humans.
