Week 3_Robotics and Popular Belief by beverly okereke

In today’s technologically advancing world, one cannot help but to notice that our society will eventually become one run entirely by technology. Our chores, our decisions, and even those routine and tedious tasks that are part of our daily lives will be done by machines.  But is this a bad thing? It sure doesn’t sound like it. Who would dislike the idea of having a robot take out the trash or mopping the floor? With this in mind, one may be thinking of a “robot” the same way that science-fiction portrays them to be: human-like, such as this humanoid robot:

The AR (Assistant Robot) for Household Chores
The AR (Assistant Robot) for Household Chores

But while there are those robots which can exhibit human-like features, there are the more common type of robots which don’t look so human-like.  Instead, they tend to take on a form that is more compatible to their function/purpose, as explained in this article:

http://www.automation.com/resources-tools/articles-white-papers/articles-by-jim-pinto/robotics-technology-trends

The article, written by Jim Pinto, an industry analyst, technology entrepreneur, and futurist (among other things), explains the most likely future in robotics and how it can be analyzed today as an industry.

Most robots today are machines that can be seen as anything but simple. Some perform surgery, work in manufacturing plants, and do other things that we, as human beings can do ourselves. Yet these robots don’t look like humans. 

All the same, robots today are viewed in a way that is not yet wholly ralized by science. Although the scientific community is looking for ways to perfect their humanoid robots, they are still in the developmental and experimental phases of the endeavor. Humanoid robots themselves are used for research primarily. The study of humans and their abilities are used to develop these amazing robots, which in turn leads to a better understanding of the human body itself. They are also used to do a variety of human chores and are thus used for personal assstance. Check out this article, for example:

The article explains the use/purpose of humanoids and their usefulness towards the human race. In a way, we are catching up to the imaginative realm of sci-fi’s dexcription of robotics. And soon our world will be very similar to the world described by Isaac Asimov’s I,Robot, and maybe even the film adaptation of it.
