Managing Director Amarita Natt was quoted in an article discussing automation for Lifewire: How Autonomous Food Delivery Could Hurt Workers.
A quick quote from Dr. Natt: “Automated delivery is actually quite challenging on a number of levels. It’s also going to take a while for this technology to be more cost-efficient than humans, I suspect, giving some time for people to find alternative employment options.”
Here are the articles key takeaways:
- Grubhub and Yandex announced a partnership that will offer autonomous food delivery services to select US college campuses.
- The deliveries are set to launch this fall, but will likely be limited to areas with higher levels of walkability.
- Experts say the automation of jobs is unavoidable, but there are things workers and companies can do to ensure the coming changes are good for humans.
