  • Hey there and welcome to Life Noggin!

  • If you go to an Amazon fulfillment center, chances are youll probably see a robot

  • working, picking and packing items to make that process more efficient.

  • This is just one example of robots doing work that a human could do.

  • Robots can now take over assembly line jobs, clean your carpet, and eventually, successfully

  • get you from point A to point B with autonomous vehicles.

  • And this causes a lot of worry among the general public that people are going to be put out

  • of work because of these artificially intelligent robots.

  • So, the question is: should we let them take those jobs?

  • The short answer is yes.

  • To start, which job do you think a robot will take over first, a doctor or a nurse?

  • Interestingly, current work in the field of artificial intelligence seems to suggest a

  • doctor might be first in line.

  • To show why, let’s talk about skin cancer.

  • A lot of the time, this is initially detected by looking at an abnormal area on someone’s

  • skin and then that person might get a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.

  • In computer science terms, this is basically an image classification task.

  • So, a team of researchers at Stanford set out to create a way to classify a variety

  • of skin lesions and tell whether they are cancerous or not, and if so, determine if

  • it was one of the deadliest skin cancers.

  • They did this using something called a deep convolutional neural network and trained it

  • with a dataset containing about 130,000 images.

  • And when the researchers compared the results from their artificial intelligence diagnosis

  • algorithm to the diagnoses from 21 professional dermatologists, the AI performed just as well.

  • Seriously, how freaking cool is that?!

  • If this was made into an app, people could get diagnosed straight from their smart phones

  • and it could probably save a lot of people’s lives.

  • That said, it’s not like doctors are going to be out of jobs all of a sudden and vacationing

  • all day every day.

  • I know, doc, it’s sad, but you gotta put that inflatable flamingo down.

  • Instead, smart technology will probably be used alongside doctors in their work.

  • So, that’s just one example.

  • It’s possible that as more and more companies work on autonomous vehicles and they continue

  • to get safer and are widely used, roads might be safer than they are now.

  • I mean, in the US alone, 28 people die from drunk-driving accidents every day.

  • But if everyone uses an autonomous vehicle, that number could theoretically shrink to

  • zero, which is obviously a great thing.

  • So, there’s clearly a lot of benefits of allowing smart technology replace or improve

  • some jobs.

  • And excluding any effects this may have on the economy, it may even help with your health

  • as well, assuming you might work a bit less if there’s also a robot doing some of your

  • work.

  • See, research from The Australian National University found that working more than 39

  • hours a week can have negative health effects since you have less time to eat well and look

  • after yourself.

  • So, in a world where robots do some of our work, people might be healthier and have more

  • time for their hobbies and more time to pump some iron in the gym!

  • But what do you think?

  • Would you be okay with a robot taking your job?

  • Let me know in the comments below.

  • Make sure you come back every Monday for a brand new video.

  • As always, I’m Blocko and this has been Life Noggin.

  • Don’t forget to keep on thinking!
