49. Twenty years from now, people will spend less time cooking and preparing food than they do today.
As time passes by, the world has been developing. Some people might think that people will not spend less time cooking and preparing food than they do today, twenty years from now because artificial intelligence has developed enough for robots to housekeep. I, however, totally disagree with the statement for two reasons. Firstly, mechanical technologies allow people not to cook. Secondly, people will not have time to cook for their meal. Most of all, artificial intelligence has developed enough for robots to housekeep. It is commonly observed that people these days do more research about techniques for people to live in more convenient condition as time passes by. To be more specific, in Harvard University, they conducted a research only with 5 factories of making housekeeping robots. The factories continually made the products to improve a quality of convenient life. One of the products was cooking robots. The robot did cooking by themselves without any command or order. People did not have to put any effort on cooking. Naturally, the time for cooking has decreased. Therefore, scientists and professors say that more robots of housekeeping will be produces as soon as possible. Even now, the time for cooking had decreased, and what if future comes; naturally the technique will probably develop more than that of todays. Furthermore, necessity value of cooking will be decreased. The more people are busy the more they do not have time to cook. To illustrate more specifically, convenient stores developed a lot these days. In convenient store, many various box lunches are sold. People usually buy them to scrounge. My dad, a CEO of a company, is too busy of work. He could neither have a time to exercise nor have a meal. Workload overflows that he cannot control it. Thus, he rarely has meal. What comes down is that he does not need to spend time for cooking and preparing food than formative years. Likewise, as the world is continuously developing, more works are given to people, which drive people not to have meals in a regular basis. To summarize my point, there are no reasons to oppose that people will spend less time cooking and preparing food than they do today, twenty years from now for two reasons I have mentioned up above.
