Jobs Humans Do Better Than Robots
Artificial intelligence is a powerful tool that can help us solve big problems and make the world a better place. But it’s not magic: there are still jobs that are better left to humans than to robots. Here are some of them:
Robot Childcare Isn’t Emotional Enough
You know the drill: You need to go to work and your child needs to go with you, but there’s no one else to take care of them. The solution? Robots! Robots that can do all the hard parts for us—like cooking, cleaning and changing diapers—making our lives easier and allowing us more free time. This is a tempting idea, but we don’t think we’d like it if someone replaced our daycare worker with a robot. Think about it: Would a robot be able to hold your baby while they’re crying in their car seat during rush hour traffic? Or feed him his bottle when he’s hungry at 2 A.M.? No! They would not have the ability to soothe a cranky infant or calm an upset toddler. We need humans in childcare because we need emotional support and nurturing; robots cannot give us these things because they are not equipped with feelings or intuition like humans are
Creative Brainstorming is Best with Humans
You know the scene: a group of people are gathered around a table, talking out loud and throwing ideas back and forth. Maybe they’re brainstorming new product names, or maybe they’re trying to come up with an entirely new business model.
It’s not just that robots can’t do this—they can’t even come close! It’s not that robots lack creativity; they just have different types of creativity than humans do. For example, a robot can be programmed to create art based on certain parameters (like the size of its canvas), but it won’t ever think outside those parameters in order to create something completely unexpected and unique.
Humans are different. We aren’t just creative—we’re innovative. Innovation is the act of creating something new; it’s about going beyond the parameters set by others and doing things in a different way than has ever been done before. It’s seeing patterns in data that no one else can see, then using those patterns to create something totally new and groundbreaking.
Repair Work Can Always Use a Human Touch
The truth is, there are certain tasks that robots just can’t do. While they may be able to perform simple repairs, their lack of fine motor skills means they can’t do everything a human can. For example, the best way to fix a leaky dishwasher is for someone with hands and fingers to get inside the unit and tighten up connections or replace parts.
Robots are also not very good at doing hair—they don’t have the same dexterity that humans do when it comes to styling and coloring hair. However, if you want your hair colored purple (and who doesn’t?), then yes: robots could dye your hair purple! Just take note that if you decide on this option, you will likely end up looking like an extra from Star Wars: Rogue One instead of Kylie Jenner after her runway debut at New York Fashion Week in 2016 (which would probably still make you look better than Kylie).
So, while robots may be able to perform simple repairs or dye your hair purple, they’re not going to replace human workers entirely anytime soon.
Jobs Humans Do Better Than Robots.
For a long time, we’ve been told that robots are our future overlords. Sure, they’re pretty good at doing things like calculating math problems and sorting mail—but what about more complex tasks? The truth is that while robots have some skills humans lack (like carrying heavy objects), we have many more strengths that can’t be replicated by a machine.
For example: we’re better listeners than robots. We don’t judge people based on their speech patterns or facial expressions—we just listen and try to understand the person’s point of view so we can help them out. Robots lack this ability because they lack emotional intelligence; their programming doesn’t allow them to display empathy for other human beings.
Plus, there’s no way anything will ever replace our sense of smell! While robots may use scent detection technology from time to time when performing tasks like cleaning up after pets or detecting drugs in airports, they typically rely on visual cues rather than relying on their sense of smell alone as humans do when trying new foods or going through airport security checks (which involve sniffing passengers’ bags).
So next time you’re wondering what a human can do that a robot can’t, just remember these three things: We’re better listeners than robots. We don’t judge people based on their speech patterns or facial expressions—we just listen and try to understand the person’s point of view so we can help them out. Robots lack this ability because they lack emotional intelligence; their programming doesn’t allow them to display empathy for other human beings. Plus, there’s no way anything will ever replace our sense of smell!
AI Is Fast And Safe, But It Can’t Create Rapport
AI is fast and safe, but it can’t create rapport yet.
The best use of AI in healthcare comes from its ability to perform repetitive tasks that require speed or accuracy. This makes AI a great tool for doctors and nurses who need help with the mundane aspects of their jobs, such as reviewing patient charts or diagnosing simple illnesses.
AI won’t replace human workers anytime soon because it lacks empathy—the ability to read nonverbal cues like tone of voice or facial expressions that convey the emotions behind what someone is saying. However, this could change in the future: IBM recently announced plans for Watson Health Cloud, which will allow doctors to use artificial intelligence tools such as automated diagnoses from supercomputers like Watson instead of consulting each other manually through email chains or phone calls during off hours when they aren’t getting paid extra money by hospitals (which means any time after 9 pm).
The future of AI is bright, but humans are still king in some areas. We’re good at building relationships, understanding people’s emotions and giving a human touch to our work. While robots may be able to do these things eventually, it will take some time before they can replace us entirely!
