With the growing influence of technology, some traditional professions such as cashiers, customer support operators, and warehouse workers are gradually disappearing. Their professions are steadily being automated and replaced by machines. This trend will continue and extend to the functioning of companies themselves. Smart algorithms are now even able to replace human thinking in limited cases and are gradually penetrating companies’ inner workings. The writer Karel Čapek, who introduced robots in his play R.U.R more than a century ago, would probably be quite surprised today. His idea of a machine-controlled earth is not as "crazy" as it might have seemed a few years ago.
What will automation and robotization bring to society in the long run? Shouldn't machines only do the work that humans cannot do? And shouldn't robots be working with humans rather than replacing them?
