We can’t stop the development of robots. What we have to do is not fight against artificial intelligence, but accelerate our pace to keep up with the changes. When robots can work as well as or even better than us at lower costs, there is a risk we will be replaced. Artificial intelligence is going to continue to develop, so we should, too. Only when we equip ourselves with the ability to progress can we take control of robots and not be controlled by them.
