Robots among us: will they put Muscovites out of work? – Russian newspaper

Date: July 24, 2024 Time: 05:31:10

Administrators, couriers, nurses, cleaners, cooks, janitors, salesmen – more and more robots are becoming competitors of Muscovites on the capital’s labour market. Hardy, stress-resistant, they are ready to work around the clock – in a word, they are not employees, they are a dream. What professions have already been taken over by these intelligent machines? Will Muscovites be able to keep their jobs?

To protect health and order.

Robotic assistants are the most popular in Moscow. Interesting design and useful functionality are the main advantages of the so-called robotic cat, which was hired by the capital’s hospitals. The smart machine looks like a cat, has good manners, but most importantly, it helps patients and doctors. For example, in the City Clinical Hospital No. 67 named after her. LA. Vorokhobova’s cat lives in the neonatal intensive care unit. It delivers baby food to the wards and delivers medicines from the treatment room. The robot independently navigates in space thanks to cameras that scan the environment 90 times per second. Two other robot cats work in the City Clinical Hospital No. 15 named after her. OM Filatova. One carries the belongings of patients and visitors to the examination room, shows them the way, for example, to the elevator or the bathroom, and the other carries bed linen and medical supplies. By the way, little children are delighted with smart devices and ask their parents to have such a cat in the apartment.

Another popular robot assistant can be found in city supermarkets, where they have abandoned the services of cleaners in favour of electronic washing machines. Robots that look like vacuum cleaners move quickly around the sales area. They are very attentive and never crash into shop windows or hurt customers. However, their significant difference from the same vacuum cleaner is that they can talk, for example, politely ask a shopper who is in their way to leave the cleaning area. The robots do not require supervision from employees, they charge themselves, clean themselves and change the water. On average, one robot is able to clean a huge room with an area of ​​1,000 square meters in one hour.

Robots can also navigate well on the street. For example, in Kuzminki, Sokolniki and 50th Anniversary of October parks, iron wipers work in any weather. In winter they remove snow, and in summer they sweep and wash paths. These wipers are safe for people and animals thanks to machine vision. When it encounters an obstacle on the road, the robot instantly recognizes it, for example, it will stop in front of a person and continue moving only when the person moves away;

Diagnostics and messengers.

The eight flagship offices of My Documents employ very nice people. They were hired a couple of years ago, successfully completed the probationary period and continue to serve as diagnosticians. They help you to conduct a medical examination in the “My Health” offices. By placing your hand on the sensor, the robot measures body temperature in a second, shows the patient’s blood pressure and pulse, as well as the level of oxygen saturation and blood sugar. Based on the data obtained, visitors receive useful recommendations, for example, on weight loss or advice on contacting a specific specialist.

Muscovites have long been accustomed to a whole squad of robot couriers. Most often, wheeled boxes are parked near the Belorusskaya metro station, from where they set off to perform tasks, for example, delivering documents or a hot lunch. There are now about a hundred such couriers in the city. By the way, robots are not only hardy, but also strong. They can carry up to 20 kilograms of goods.

Robot chefs are also gaining popularity in the city. They make coffee, pizza and even pancakes. The latter, a crepe maker, makes more than 100 hot crepes a day for passengers of the capital’s metro. At the Nizhegorodskaya, Michurinsky Prospekt, Novogireevo and Pushkinskaya metro stations, in just three minutes the iron chef will prepare any of 11 types of pancakes filled with chicken, ham, cheese and tomatoes.

Vulnerable professions

The fear of losing their jobs due to the high performance of robots and the development of artificial intelligence is present among representatives of different professions. “In fact, many professions are not immune to robotization and automation, but this is unlikely to affect those professions where interaction between people is important, for example, doctors, social workers and teachers. The work of these specialists is based on empathy and support, i.e. skills that a robot cannot have,” said Andrei Tarasov, head of the Moscow Employment Service and the Center for Future Professions.
