About a quarter of American workers think technology could take over their jobs within the next 20 years, and 13 percent say it may eliminate their jobs within five. Fears about robots taking jobs from human workers have swirled for years, and the concerns are understandable
"The startups that have made it to the final competition are indicative of the levels of innovation in the machine vision and imaging industries," according to Jeff Burnstein, President, AIA. "I don't envy the job in front of our judges having to select only one winner."
The ins and outs of the technology can admittedly get very complicated but, essentially, autonomous robots are a fusion of (sometimes artificially intelligent) software, physical robotics hardware, and sensors.
If a robot is dealing with electronics, it needs to know whether its hand is sliding along a wire or pulling on it. If the robot needs to hold a medical instrument, it needs to know if the object is slipping or in a firm grip.
The Airframe is designed like a backpack and can be adjusted to almost any body size with an adjustable frame and straps. It supports the upper extremities of professionals and skilled trade workers who are exposed to repetitive arm motions and/or stationary arm elevation.
As we see more widespread acceptance for robots in general, we'll likely see even more automation in health care - but some of it is already here.
