Whether it is about growing and picking foods or from making a meal, artificial intelligence are soon making their way in substituting labor in food production. While robots are seen to reduce the amount of labor needed and potentially more people that will be out-of-job, robot is one of the possible way to increase productivity, taking over jobs that workers are not willing to work at minimal wages and tasks that can be potentially harmful to production workers.
Well, I am just glad that we preserve the little human touch to perfect our foods. What do you think?
