Household needs is one area where it consumes a lot of human effort to keep and maintain, whether you do it yourself, someone do it for you, hire a maid or outsource it. For those home electric product producers with computer vision, they are eye for the home robots. As you can see from the news, a variety of it is invented and showcased right now. Whether or not it takes human form is secondary important, just like robot chefs now use in the kitchen and restaurant backend context.
From the big items like electric self-driving cars with robots and AI leading the direction, smaller versions of robots that can handle household needs is indeed a big market and potential is unknown at the time. With the world news is focused on business, retailing and manufacturing context, such as AI and robots replace over half of human involvement on those. If applied to the household, does it make life easier? For the same reason, it has the potential to eliminate half of current household helper needs. And those can be free up for doing something else.
Some societies, due to culture roof, have the unspoken norm for females upon marriage needing to stay home to handle household and kid. This will be one of the good factors and variables to make the change in that. If the never stopping home robots can handle the household, of course it makes sense for the female workforce to do something else. Or at the minimum, we expect the time is cut to half, so at least those females can do part time jobs.
Let’s imagine, elder care needs 24×7 monitoring, no human can outperform robots for that. Same goes for the 24×7 monitoring the sleep of kids for the various sensors and trigger immediate action for abnormal detection.
As the world keeps transitioning to the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) industry 4.0, we can not have a better understanding for how it will be. From the flying robots, self driving car and home robot.
