Service industry workers around the globe might need to start looking for a new career after #South Korea announced on Thursday their latest robotic designs to hit the market. That's right -- it's happening. Although #Artificial Intelligence is something that has been talked about and anticipated for quite some time, many people hadn't predicted that the robots would hit the market so soon. It looks like the movie "I, Robot" directed by Alex Proyas may have been correct with their predictions of robots ruling the world in 2030. Lets hope not.

Making sense of it all

I know what you're thinking, quite frankly, because I'm thinking it too.

What does this mean for all the jobs? While advancing technology is great for mankind and some might argue, an inevitable necessity, there are some potential risks that must be addressed.

In an age of excess information, the problem isn't accessing the data, but rather, the problem lies in picking the right data and organizing that data in a way that's both efficient and useful. After all, what good is it to know how to program software if you're going to be a dentist? The point I'm trying to make is, computers make our lives easier. They process and organize insane amounts of information in a time frame we couldn't dream of.

What people have been doing lately, especially South Korea, is teaching artificial intelligence how to process information more intuitively, like humans, and then programming other computers to do the same.

South Korean giant #LG Electronics plans to sell their robots to solve tasks, such as making deliveries and working at supermarkets, taking jobs currently held by humans.

The tasks these robots will perform

Although an LG spokesman told CNBC that the robots are still just concept products and won't be reaching the public in 2018, the news of these robots gives the tech field a boost of motivation as they get a glimpse of what some of the pioneers in robotics are up to!

LG claimed that they will be showcasing three new "concept robots" at the global consumer electronics show in Las Vegas next week. The robots are meant to be implemented in commercial hotels, airports, and supermarkets. The robot most likely to hit the market first is a server robot that can deliver meals and drinks to people lounging at hotels and airports. This will free the waitstaff from their busy work since the robots will be expected to perform all day long.

So, what do you think, are we ready for these robots to hit the market, or does mankind need more time to adapt to the inevitable?
