Robots and Artificial Intelligence Will Not Kill Jobs Instead They Are The Foundation Of The Next Generation Jobs

There are also other perspectives:

As you could read in the previous sections, there is still a big hope for us humans to live in prosperity and to empower ourselves with more skills and opportunities for our lives.

We at Rocky Robots believe that Robots and A.I. will help to maximize human potential.

For this reason we are focusing on applications around self-improvement combined with Social Robots in your personal environment.

By using a Social Robot on a daily basis and getting more and more involved with AI technologies and robot applications, our users have the chance to adapt to human-machine interaction and develop systematically their skills and attitude towards the jobs of the future.

Rocky Robots Deskbot — Your Life Coach At All Times

The Deskbot is a personal robot that enhances the users daily self-improvement routines. Very important are the habit building, goal setting and achievement tracking applications which come along with the robot and the A.I. based user dialogues.

The slogan “Your Personal Life Coach” mentions already that A.I. will possibly overtake parts of a previous human jobs. However, in reality this product will rather help and push the user to be motivated in achieving the goals and to be persistent with implementing the daily habits. This service, if provided daily by a human personal professional life coach, would be simply not affordable for an average person.

People who have had the experience to join real world seminars, speeches or read meaningful literature, would have now the right and pro-active tool to continue your their personal self-improvement journey on a daily basis.
