Sebastian Aguilar (Could go either way) says
With the industry, it could go either way since there will be the need to understand when physical eyes will need to be present to analyze the workplace. No majority of a population is going to change their career to engineering to be able to program every individual machine to perfection and eliminate that situation of environmental disaster.
