L to R: Android robot Kodomoroid Prof. Hiroshi Ishiguro Mamoru Mohri, the chief executive director of the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation Otonaroid, in Tokyo on June 24.
Honda came out with the ASIMO robot which has been programmed to do quite a few functions which includes: pouring drinks, dancing, walking up stairs, speaking and even playing soccer. Asimo which stands for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility, can run nearly 4 MPH, weighs just 106 pounds and stands 4 feet 3 inches tall. Asimo can recognize when its battery is low and locating its charging station and recharge itself. Amazingly, the 2015 version of this Android can shake hands and give verbal answers primarily based on hand gestures or voice commands.
The price tag? Oh the price tag is about 1.3 million US Dollars, not a typo, but as observed in the demonstration above it could be worth it. The 3.eight meter (about 12 feet) tall 5-ton robot is also equipped with ‘weapons’ such as a water powered LOHAS launcher or a smile powered gatling gun, really should you encounter any enemies in that lazy Sunday afternoon when you’re driving it around the block.
One particular source of occupational hope lies in the fact that even as technologies removes humanity from many positions, it can also support us retrain for new roles. Thanks to the Web, there are surely more methods to access facts than ever prior to. In addition (if not somewhat ironically), advancing technologies can open new opportunities by lowering the bar to positions that previously expected years of training folks devoid of healthcare degrees could be in a position to deal with preliminary emergency area diagnoses with the aid of an AI-enabled device, for example.
As with most new technologies the surgeon is forced to discover new methods, new technologies and require to create new abilities in biofeedback. However, as much more on a lot more surgeons come on board and a new generation of medical students used to video game controllers and remote technology will find it significantly simpler- this could also grow to be portion of core surgical training at varying levels.
