Before the global covid 19 pandemic, virtually everyone have some degree of apprehension about robots and artificial intelligence Though their beliefs may have been probably shaped by the bleak depictions of the technology in science fiction, their discomfort was strengthen by permissible concerns . Some of AI’s business applications were indeed leading to the loss of jobs, These worries appear to have been set aside since the onset of the pandemic as AI-infused technologies have been employed to reduce the spread of the virus. We’ve actually seen an acceleration of the use of technology to do the jobs of humans who have been ordered to stay at home or who have been redeployed within the workplace

AI is also fostering an increased reliance on chatbots for customer services at companies and on machine-driven content monitoring on platforms such as YouTube. Robotic telepresence platforms are providing students in developing countries with an in-person college graduation experience. Robots are even serving as noisy fans in otherwise empty stadiums.

No doubt, a lot are already overlooking our former uneasiness about internet of things and AI when the technology’s perceived value outweighs its anticipated downsides. But be that as it may, there are dangers to this newfound embrace of AI and I.O.T


With robots replacing more and more job functions, it’s important to consider what is next. What will happen when humans want their former jobs back? And what will we do if tracking for safety’s sake becomes too invasive or seems too creepy?. With that, our concerns about the consequences of robots and AI may decrease. In addition to losing sight of the scale of job loss empowered by the use of robots and AI, we may hastily overlook the forms of bias embedded within AI and the invasiveness of the technology that will be used to track the coronavirus’s spread.
