It is mostly repetitive tasks that are easy to learn for the average person let alone a robot. I build orders for drivers that stock vending machines and small convenience store like stalls. So it's not the same thing every order and also its bags of chips and bottles of soda so I would assume it would be more expensive to have robots that can handle something more sensitive than boxes and crates, could be wrong though. My job will inevitably be automated I'm certain of that. My only question is how long will it take and what will I do afterwords?
