As if technology hasn’t taken over enough of our lives already, it now appears that the future of retail shopping is heading toward robotic shop assistants:
The robots have been developed per medium of a partnership between Lowe’s and Fellow Robots, a Silicon Valley tech company. Now I don’t know about in the US, but here in Australia, finding a shop assistant who knows anything about the products they are supposed to be selling is not easy. In fact, in many stores, just finding a shop assistant is near mission impossible. So, although there may be a viable argument that this innovation will only see more jobs lost for humans, perhaps it may benefit consumers in the long run.
What do you think?
