In the midst of talks about how AI and robots are taking away jobs from people, we still have to consider the advantages that these present in terms of expediting work and even expanding the possibilities for construction and manufacturing. With the 3D printing robots, manufacturing parts will no longer be confined to limited sizes or volumes.

I think, given the right balance, automation doesn't have to mean replacement of the human workforce. It can just be a tool used to enhance efficiency and productivity.

See, that's the thing: robots are supposed to help us. It's just a matter of how they're programmed or used. They need not take anything from us like our jobs.
