The concept of a fully automated store seems of a curiosity. During, COVID-19 pandemic, the idea of relying on computers and robotics, and checking out groceries merely picks them off-the-shelf that doesn’t behave as strange.

Society has encountered unlimited challenges in this period of the pandemic, but we have also realized that it has accelerated our learning and solutions creativity at the same time as it has shown us how to look at things from a different perspective. 

Many of us now have learned to appreciate and understand AI and other innovative solutions a lot more.

It needs a lot to do for defining standards and regulatory framework to make sure we achieve safety, ethics and human rights avoiding fragmentation in the internal European market. But if somethings we have learned is that we must keep working together.

This involvement explains at how it deals with critical artificial intelligence (AI) systems that learn and decide without any human involvement and how the types of AI technologies challenges the current understanding of the law and its applications.

How should these systems be governed that are disruptive and progressive?  For this, the below to be explained. How AI technologies amplify social injustice that existed in societies? 

For example, unregulated facial recognition affects almost 120 million adults with dependent testing for biased error rate. It effectively creates virtual and perpetual sequences for the law of enforcements.

Top Emerging Technologies of Artificial Intelligence in 2020

Present Applications Used

Connected supermarkets like Amazon and Go Groceries use this technology that employs computer vision technology, sensor fusion technology and deep learning strategy that eliminates the need for staffed checkout. These are the similar types of technologies used in self-driving cars application. 

Connected supermarkets have eradicated standing in pipelines and the traditional checkout experience as well as a more recent self-checkout experiences.

Other curious innovations used to step-into another world like self-robot cleaners that use ultra-violet light to disinfect hospitals and medical facility.

Some products raise concerns like ZoraBot, which resembles an elder care robot. These robots designed to increase the freedom and reduce to be alone within the growth of elderly inhabitants. But there are concerns for robots that are potentially insufficient in terms of true human companionship.

Technological Workforces

Before Covid-19 outbreak, there is increased automation that would impact on a workforce which makes uneasy about missing human work to machine work. When worried about replacing essential employees such as cleaners with self-automatic floor-cleaning robots. 

It resulted in predicting the job loss and out-of-balance allocation of prosperity. The future of labor predicted from 400 to 800 million people around the world that displaced with self-automation within ten years.

It will generate several queries.

  1. Could an automated workforce lessen economic damages in coronavirus moment?
  2. Could more contactless options have offered cashiers more protection at grocery stores? 
  3. Could the use of elder care bots have limited the devastation brought upon long-term care homes?

There is mounting evidence that technology protects humans. The bots never attacked by covid-19.

Support for a Labor Force

Some forecasts job gains that come with increased automation. Before the outbreak of the pandemic, 6.1 millions of opportunities globally will create between 2020 and 2022 from emerging professionals resulting from automation and other applications of such technologies.

There are plenty of instances where machines have helped humans doing their jobs. For example, Bomb disposal robots operate as a remote presence for soldiers tasked with disabling suspects at the device.

However, some occupations are fundamentally human and require quick life-and-death decision making and compassion. 

Medicine is incredibly critical to automate, but there may be a platform that uses such technology for a simple task that takes a patient’s body temperatures.

This crisis emerges automation and employment that are not necessarily mutually exclusive by implementing one will not rule-out another. 

Fear-tactics over the bots-versus-jobs debate obscures the evidence that bots can do things where humans cannot. It avoids infection by viruses. This technological curiosity may also constitute a form of scare-tactics.
