Domino’s Pizza’s Australian arm of the business got into the Forbes list of the world’s most innovative companies for its robot. The DRU. Domino’s Robotic Unit.

3 Australian growth companies in Forbes list of most innovative companies

They launched their first DRU in Australia recently and it was a success!

Success in the sense that people found it innovative, amusing and hopefully that it would arrive with a nice hot pizza!

You may like to order a pizza from Domino’s just to watch their DRU in action! Who knows? If you took a selfie with Domino’s robot or a video of it arriving at your front door, you could become a Facebook or Instagram star!

“Hey DRU, when are you coming to my house?”

Pizza and robots make a sizzling combination!

Live Long & Prosper. Peace.

Robots Taking Your Job?

Just read that Walmart has opened their first fully automated online groceries collection point in the UK. Robots will assemble the orders and give them to the truck drivers. Pretty soon the truck drivers will also be robots. Driverless cars have already been tested.

Martin Ford, in his new book, “Rise of the Robots” warns that robots, computers and automation will take over our jobs soon, causing massive disruption to the economy.

In the US alone, he cites the study by 2 Oxford researchers who say that 50% of jobs will be taken over by robots within 20 years.

I have written about this several times already.

You can find my series on Artificial Intelligence/Robotics in my LinkedIn profile.

How do we prepare for robots taking over (too many) of our jobs?

Not very well, I’m afraid. How can we fight the Machines?

Live Long and Prosper! Peace.

In factories where it used to be labour intensive, robots are now being used to do the repetitive and heavy manual labour type of work.

In areas of medicine, artificial intelligence in the form of super computers can now do diagnostics and analysis.

But is it all good (for us)?
