Due to the rapid development of technology, we are approaching every day at a time when robots and humans are seen working together. 
There will be a time in the future when there will be no non-attendance in your office, no one will come later nor will anyone ask for the lunch break. No one will be required to pay a salary nor will anyone ask for tea or coffee. No one will have time to go to the bathroom, neither will anyone need water nor will need a holiday. Perhaps within the next 30 to 50 years, we will see a day when there will be some people with human names in the offices, all others will be robots.
Do you find this fantasy pleasant or scary? More importantly, are you ready for a future when a coworker robot will be sitting at the desk around you in the office?

The building of every reality stands on the foundation of imagination. Therefore, this imagination also needs to be taken seriously. Robotics, until recently considered more conducive for humans to perform difficult, repetitive, laborious and dangerous tasks, are now replacing humans in factories, supermarkets and warehouses. They have started working in homes, participating in sports, working in restaurants and even helping in surgery work in the operation theatre. 
The role of both hardware robots and software bots are increasing in human life. Virtual newsreaders who read the news are present, so do the bots who write the news. Moreover, robot Sophia of Hong Kong's Hanson Robotics can chat with you just like friends.

From an employee's point of view, it seems like a terrible nightmare. But from a company or its owners, such robotic employees can be a big profit deal - in terms of saving money, in terms of efficiency and also in terms of time.
Recently, the famous e-commerce and retailing company Amazon has deployed two different types of robots called Xanthus and Pigasus in their warehouse in New Jersey to carry goods from here to there, lift, hand over, decorate, performs tasks like arranging and cleaning.

Except for small hurdles, these robotic employees of Amazon are working tremendously. Work is starting to happen quickly, is being done better and is happening day and night. Amazon's rival Walmart has also deployed a robot named Freddy in about two thousand stores. These robots work around the other employees of the store, such as cleaning, searching for things and setting the boxes, and also help customers when needed. The experiment of Walmart is the first and successful experiment of its kind of coordination and communication between employees, customers and robots.

Robots such as Toyota's T-HR3, a world leader in robot making, can help in labour work during building construction, also can take care of children, and also can do relief work during natural disasters. The parking of subway train stations in Nanjing city of China has been handled by robots, who perform this difficult task with more efficiency in just one minute. In Japan, a company called Myra has started giving rent to a robot doing maid work (wiping, washing clothes, washing utensils, etc.) for a mere Rs 13 thousand per month. In the big cities of India, full-time maid's have started taking so much money.

Obviously, Robo employees solve many challenges of employers. In countries like America, it is becoming very difficult to get employees for hard work. In many countries, the number of youth who can work is also decreasing. Employees who get their salary range from ten dollars to 15 dollars per hour. On an employee who performs eight hours of duty for twenty days every month, an average of two and a half thousand dollars are spent, which will be around one lakh 70 thousand rupees in Indian currency. On the other hand, robotic workers are no longer as expensive as before and are available at an average price of thirty thousand dollars. A year's salary for an employee is equal to the cost of a robot. But the robot will always work forever. The important thing is that a robot can work with the ease of three to four employees. From this point of view, the benefit is only for traders.

So what will happen to the workers?

The question arises, what will happen to workers when robots take away the jobs of humans? This is a serious and real question. In western countries, where the number of people working is less and the youth is not interested in working hard, it might not make much difference to the people, but what will happen to the developing countries? In places like petrol pumps and toll booths in the US, humans do not work because most of the work is done automatically, which the customers themselves do. But in countries like India, there is no shortage of people. There is a shortage of employment! Here, a petrol pump employs ten to twenty people. According to a survey of Britain's company called Oxford Economics, by 2030, two crore people in the world will lose their jobs due to robots.
Here in America, people whose work has been taken away by robots, they have been employed in the care and monitoring of these robots or given other alternative work.

What do you think this robot technology is boon or curse?
