A bit more than a year ago, the world faced totally new phenomena: the first robot marriage of two Japanese robots Frois and Yukirin. More over, David Levy, artificial intelligence researcher at the University of Maastricht, predicts that we are going to be the first generation to face the legal human & robot marriage. It would lead to questioning current norms, including the human rights.
By definition, robot is a machine controlled through an external or internal computer and often equipped with audio, visual, and/or tactile sensors as well as other devices and tools to perform one or several programmed jobs. Artificial intelligence progresses and today robotics have an essential role in almost everyone’s daily routines. If the artificial intelligence development will sustain the current the fast pace, we will face the social dilemma; on one hand robots help us to create more comfortable lives, on the other hand, if robots are going to replace most of the human functions, then do humans still fit into this new society?
These are the questions that we will find out the answer in a few years. As for today, Robotics serve us in all possible ways: nano-robots treat the most dangerous diseases, whilst Humanoids keep the company for elderly. The list of Top 10 Innovations in Robotics is an overview of the most amazing current achievements in the robotics.
