Dear MEL Topic Readers,

With humans vulnerable: How about a digital helper?

To avoid human contacts, more people start using mobile payment tools instead of cash or plastic cards, just like most Chinese people have been doing. Likewise, more jobs are being replaced by robots and AI assistants instead of humans. Delivery robots in quarantine hotels and reception robots in hospitals, where more virus contacts are imminent. Now, thanks to recent AI technology and machine learning, those robots perform even more productively than human counterparts. Also, they can be programmed to understand and speak multiple languages, which cannot be performed by ordinary humans. Furthermore, they work 24/7 without break, save time for battery recharge, and totally immune to the coronavirus, so no need to put protective clothes or masks on. But today’s robots are not a superman. They are limited to perform the tasks they learned. It’s more productive to use them for specific jobs and environments where they can learn and perform better.

Enjoy reading the article and think which now you prefer to be instructed or supported, a human with a mask or a robot.
