Robots In 2020

Future RobotsSince my childhood years, I have often been fascinated with Robots. How I’d like to play my C3PO and R2D2 action figures and imagine them to be actual – going about the vital situations and circumstances in our lives, no matter whether it be at the battlefield acting as replacement for soldiers thereby minimizing lives lost in wars, in disasters such as fires and earthquakes, in healthcare emergencies acting as aide or replacement for medical doctors, as pets, and in our houses carrying out the daily chores (which I think some of us hate).

However, the technology is establishing quite swiftly on all fronts, including intelligence, sensing, manipulation and actuation, walking gait and navigation.

It will not be attainable to shut off ASI. It will be interconnected with the web and numerous other AI systems. By the time we may figure out a way to shut it off, it will have currently secured itself and moved on. An artificial intelligence that could turn out to be millions, billions or even trillions occasions smarter than us in a quite quick time will be incredibly hard to retain beneath manage, if not not possible.
