Software Robots Will Take People's Jobs and Ruin the Economy

There is widespread fear that robots (the software kind included) will take over people's jobs and completely disrupt the global economy. What history has proven time and time again, however, is that new jobs inevitably arise with new technology. Sure, software robots might take on rules-based back-office jobs. People, then, can focus on work that's better suited for humans, including strategic and creative projects or any work requiring empathy.

In fact, early adopters of software robots have not only found that they have kept people on board, but have a happier, more satisfied workforce as employees are able to concentrate on more valuable and rewarding initiatives.

With all the buzz around robots these days, most people envision R2D2 or Rosie from "The Jetsons" when they think about the machines. What many fail to realize, however, is that robots can come in both hardware and software forms, and the latter – while less discussed – are well positioned to completely disrupt the way we work.

For insight into these software 'bots and how they will impact our lives, David Moss, founder and CTO, Blue Prism, and his team have compiled a list of some of the top myths and misconceptions associated with the technology. Read ahead to debunk some of the common misconceptions you might have about software robots and better understand how these next-generation machines will streamline operations in your business in the very near future.
