Amazon Tests Six Ft Robots to Replace Human Workers

Amazon is testing six-foot-tall warehouse robots to “free up” their human workers and cut costs as the company moves further towards complete automation of its workforce.

The robot, developed by Agility Robotics, a startup based in Corvallis, Oregon, won’t take days off, sick pay, or argue with their boss.

The robots can carry up to 35lb, walk in multiple directions, and even crouch.

Chief technologist at Amazon Robotics Tye Brady said that while the robots will replace human workers, they will also create new ones.

Brady said the robots would “eliminate all the menial, the mundane and the repetitive” tasks, claiming it “does not” mean Amazon will require fewer staff.

The US Sun reported:

There are growing fears about the loss of human jobs due to the rising use of artificial intelligence and robots.

Telecoms group BT announced earlier this year more than 10,000 jobs would be axed as a result of it replacing roles with AI.

At a presentation in Seattle, Mr Brady insisted that Amazon was focused on “collaborative machines” that work with people rather than replacing jobs.

“We want robotics to blend into the background,” he said.

“You don’t think about the dishwasher in your kitchen, it’s just there cleaning the dishes while you get on with other stuff.

“It’s still a clever robot. A machine can do the dishes, I’m not running out of things to do.”

He added that Amazon’s increase use of robots “allow me to do more of the things that matter to our customers”.

“The bottom line for me is more robots, more jobs.”

If you believe Amazon won’t be getting rid of its human staff, here are some videos that might change your mind.
