Re: Huawei 5G Vision
@srfolo1 - scary indeed. Think of the possible tag lines going something like this: “Imagine a different kind of workforce. A workforce that you can teach countless skills. The more it learns, the more efficient it becomes. It works without ever taking a vacation. It can be small one day or large when your business hits a spike. And it frees up your best people to really be your very best people. Meet the Software Robots – the Digital Workforce.“ Now here’s the truly scary part: this is for real! A real ad. Real software. Real robots. It’s all happening quietly beneath our noses.

Re: Huawei 5G Vision
@vnewman  I feel somewhat troubled by this "factory of the future." Soon it won't be just about factories but about every job humans have ever done, even tasks performed by professionals, such as surgery, teaching, etc ... AI scares me quite frankly. No wonder everyone is in such a hurry to get 5G off the ground.

Sneek Peak of Huawei's 5G Vision
Huawei, with all of its partnerships throughout the world, seems to be at the forefront of 5G technology. I'm sure we will be hearing a lot from this company at the MWC in Barcelona.

Re: Robots
@freehe  Yes, who comes up with these terms like "Robotics Renaissance," and political terms like "Dreamers," etc ... I wonder the same thing. The idea of robots roaming around wirelessly scares the bejesus out of me though.

Re: 5G and Robotics
We are already seeing it as unskilled jobs across the world are being replaced by computers. I saw it in Spain when the entire McDonalds was running with two employees. One of my local McDonald's just added the kiosks but they were still fully staffed. I was just thinking that the old "McDonald's is always hiring," idea is a thing of the past thanks to automation.

5G
Amazon.com uses 100,000 robots in their warehouses. If you shop with Amazon you may have noticed that your orders are processed faster, shipped faster and you receive your order in less time.

I order from Amazon and in the past it could take up to 2 weeks to receive an order. Now it takes less than one week to process, ship and deliver the order. I suspect this is due to the M&A or Amazon and Whole Foods. Amazon wants to streamline processes, reduce operational costs and increase profit. Robots help them meet  those goals. Amazon claims that it still hires employees in addition to using robots. Curious to see how long that trend lasts.

5G and Robotics
Companies have jobs that they are not filling due: to greed, corruption, stagnant wages, increaesed work loads. Renaissance robotics can help the job market but I don't believe it will increase skilled labor. I believe it will decrease skilled labor. 

With millions of people still unemployed and underemployed, these numbers will increase as the usage of robots increases.

Jobs will change but that change will have multiple outcomes: employees will learn new skills, employees will quit, or employees will be laid off.

This will have a cripple effect on the economy and will increase unemployment. This will result in more crime across the country and affect employees ability to make retirement account contributions.

I am always curious how people create new terms like robotics renaissance. It is so interesting. Robotics renaissance with help increasing affordability of robotics technology. It can also help small business owners and startups become more competitive.

Robots and 5G
"We will see that 5G will really drive a whole new set of use cases beyond the smartphone that have not been possible before. For example, in the case of cloud robotics the intelligence of the robot is located in the cloud, while the body of the robot carrying the mechanical functionality can be somewhere else. They would be linked together by 5G-based wireless connectivity."

That is amazing. I hadn't considered 5G and robots but it makes sense. Using the cloud, 5G and wireless technology with robots is awesome. Plus IoT and AI are used with robots. I am curious if security will be implemented in robots or will they eventually run wild like the movie "I, Robot".
