How Robots Will Change the World – BBC Documentary

Robotics future

Robot will Compete to Handle Future Disasters

Robotics is the art and commerce of robots, their design, manufacture, application, and practical use. Robots will soon be everywhere, in our home and at work. They will change the way we live. This will raise many philosophical, social, and political questions that will have to be answered. In science fiction, robots become so intelligent that they decide to take over the world because humans are deemed inferior. In real life, however, they might not choose to do that. Robots might follow rules such as Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics, that will prevent them from doing so. When the Singularity happens, robots will be indistinguishable from human beings and some people may become Cyborgs: half man and half machine.

Unfortunatly, due to Japan’s shrinking population and poor government intervention plans, they will be completly unable to capitalize on their (shrinking) advantage in technology. India’s vast advantage in the fields of technology, and Germany’s massive hi amounts of capital will make them far larger powers then Japan.

Microsoft Robotics Studio

Microsoft is currently working to stabilize the fragmented robotics market with its new software Microsoft Robotics Studio.

Minimal requirements To start a robotic breakthrough we need the following capabilities :

object recognition capabilities of a 2-year-old child language understanding of a 4-year-old manual dexterity of a 6-year-old That will allow robotisation of most manual jobs in the world and will be the turning point in the robotic history.

and for introducing the robots into social context we would need

social understanding of an 8-year-old child edit Types of Robots Humanoid robots

Lara is the first humanoid robot with artificial muscles (metal alloy strands that instantly contract when heated by electric current) instead of electric motors (2006).

Asimo (video) is one of the most advanced projects as of 2006.

Utility fog. Scenario:Modular Robots.

M-Tran consists of standard blocks and is reconfigurableModular robots can be built from standard building blocks that can be combined in different ways.

M-Tran – a snake-like modular robot that uses genetic algorithms to evolve walking programs Self replicating robots – modular robots that can produce copies of themselves using existing blocks. Swarmanoid is a project that uses 3 specialized classes of robots (footbots, handbots and eyebots) to create an effective swarm. Such swarm should be able, for example, to tidy a bedroom with each robot doing what it is best at. Police Robots

Being a police officer or a fireman is a dangerous job. They will be replaced by robots. Robot police officers will be sent to the scene of the crime to stop it. The police robots will know automatically who is committing the crime (City Awareness Grid Electronic C.A.G.E). People are afraid of robots with guns. Guns will be illegal in the future. Police robots will only have non-lethal weapons.

Operating System:

Urbi (Universal Real-Time Behavior Interface) is an open source cross-platform software platform in C++ used to develop applications for robotics and complex systems. Urbi is based on the UObject distributed C++ component architecture. It also includes the urbiscript orchestration language which is a parallel and event-driven script language. UObject components can be plugged into urbiscript and appear as native objects that can be scripted to specify their interactions and data exchanges. UObjects can be linked to the urbiscript interpreter, or executed as autonomous processes in “remote” mode.

  1. what if assimo fell …
    what if assimo fell into a hole- it would be the? assimo-hole.

  2. Except they have a …
    Except they have a long way to go to looking like or moving like? the ones in IRobot. Closest one yet is Petman Project by DARPA. @ 2:03

  3. doesn’t make sense …
    doesn’t make sense why look all robots so humanoid what is the point of that you? organic monkeys? It seems like the future of the robot is replacing the family unit lol…Welcome to a Prozac induced world!

  4. dammit, you just …
    dammit, you just tapped? into my fragile childhood nostalgia.

  5. Its not the fact …
    Its not the fact they will take over, its more of the factthat people who want to work wont be? able to…

  6. The Super jew race …
    The Super jew race of telepathic mind controlling collective psychopaths control Human Gentiles and all living things as if they were robots or muppets. The Super jew race is
    an invading race that? enslaves and kills Human Gentiles using their alien technology.
    They put Human people in a coma after sex and inject Cancer, AIDS HIV, and other poisons that cause fatal diseases. Re-animated human corpses are often used as robots of the Super jew race! Wake Up!

  7. agreed.? My job is …
    agreed.? My job is to create robots like these… and without the economic explosion from this technology, I would be? jobless!!! Fu*k you Luddites!

  8. incorrect.. …
    incorrect..computers are limited to basic calculations. In their most rudimentary form, they only have “TRUE” or “FALSE” computational power. They are unable to creatively design or use intuition because their functions have to be a bi-product of the program which was written to instantiate them. Billions of? these “TRUE/FALSE” calculations may be done in order to give the impression of intelligence, but they will never reach the point of unique discovery in the form of holistic/analytic reason

  9. Of course they will …
    Of course they will. But whats the problem about it? Most people hate there job. Dont listen to what they say about their job when you ask them,? but rather to what they say about it when you dont. Most people hate their job, thats a fact.

  10. Japan have no …
    Japan have no choice but to make robots because they have a shrinking population and negative? population growth. So ask your self this how can they maintain a growing economy without population growth to fill those new jobs? Immigration you say? Wrong! Robots!

  11. Almost? all robots …
    Almost? all robots in this video are programmed and developed with Ubuntu Linux. Maybe the robots even run a Linux kernel 😀

  12. From where you get …
    From where you get that? This? is smocking stack of bullshit what you saying.

  13. There’s 2 jobs I …
    There’s 2 jobs I hope won’t? be taken by robots. My job, and my prostitute’s job.
