IT experts have been discussing if robots and machines will put humans out of work or not in the future. Well, something of that decree has happened in Singapore, a country that ranks second in the deployment of robots per ten thousand employees. Several robots have been deployed at manufacturing plants to tackle supply chain issues. It has helped Singapore fight modern economic issues like inflation and supply chain issues. The deployment of robots began in the 1960s.
