A patent Amazon has would pair humans and machines. In cases like this, the humans would be from a cage.
Illustrations that accompanies the patent, which has been granted from the U.S. Patent and Trademark office in 2016, show a cage-like enclosure around a small work space sitting atop the sort of robotic trolleys that now drive racks of shelves around Amazon warehouses.
The patent was called “a unprecedented illustration of worker alienation, a stark moment in the relationship between humans and machines” by researchers who highlighted it in the study published Friday.
