Robots Can Increase Productivity Of Your Existing Labor Force

While it is true that robots can increase productivity of your existing labor force, the part they are leaving out is that some of that "increased productivity" will be due to humans working extra hard not to be replaced (or murdered) by even more robots.

"Automation takes a repetitive tasks and processes and seeks to streamline the tasks and processes to be completed by machinery such as conveyors," Santagate said. "Robotics can often be an element of automation. But is distinctly different in that robotics can operate in a variety of capacities and can be re-tooled and reprogrammed to do new and different things, where automation is largely a fixed process weighed down by fixed assets."
