ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE REPLACING HUMANS
The pace with which we are moving ahead in terms of artificial intelligence the day is not so far when we will be able to eat the food from its picture only. Once one of my Professor Dr. Vivek Singh Tomar, discussed about technology that anything we visualise today sounding impossible will be a reality one day for sure. According to a report by Accenture, 37% of all private employment in Argentina could be almost completely automated in the next 15 years.
FOOD DELIVERY THROUGH DRONES
After online delivery of food this industry is going to achieve another milestone. Disruptive innovations are soon to be reality when we will be receiving our food deliveries through drones making it a contactless delivery in real sense. The Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has allowed food start-ups like Zomat, Swiggy and Dunzo to start testing beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS) drones for deliveries. “Food delivery by drones is no longer just a pipe dream. It’s almost here,” the Zomato founder said earlier. While this might prove to be a game-changer for the industry, this also means that delivery boys might be replaced to a certain extent. Since drones will not have to face traffic congestions on roads, they would deliver the food much faster as compared to delivery boys. But, if we see the other side of the coin, this step would take away jobs of delivery boys. The effect of the pandemic posed economic hindrance due to which jobs were further lost.
If automation results in job losses instead of creating new jobs then, we will have to re-think where we are heading. A balance needs to be struck between technology and human intervention. Machines no doubt helps in cutting cost and increasing efficiency but humans will always remain the biggest asset for any organisation If technologies are evolving humans are too evolving.
A Machine can never replace our creative thinking!!
