Robot Reality: How Robots will Change the World - Future of Robots!
Will robots change our lives in the future? It's a funny question to ask when they're changing our lives now in so many ways and they have been for years. From the first time you saw a toaster pop up by itself, we've casually accepted that machines can be trusted to do things for us.

 

Future Robotics Technology (Full Documentary)
Though robotics seems the technology of the future, it actually has its roots in ancient history. The study and field of robotics can be traced back to approximately 300 B.C. in Ancient China. The Muslim inventor Al-Jazari is credited with inventing a humanoid robot in 1206. By the 20th century, the field of robotics was one that held great fascination and offered virtually limitless possibilities. As technology began to focus on the development of computers, so too did the study of robotics continue to move forward. The 60s was a time that both computers and robotics saw great advancement. In 1961, the first industrial robot was used at the General Motors plant. By the 21st century, the automotive industry and manufacturing plants saw widespread use of robots for commercial production.

Apart from that, advanced robotics will help humans in plenty of ways including medicine, bone restructuring, etc. The advanced robotics technology which is available right now will be evolved into more advanced future robotic technology and using it humanoid robots, autonomous robots, intelligent robots, etc., will be created and all will be having Artificial Intelligence.

 

The Robots Technology - Documentary Films
A robot is a mechanical or virtual synthetic representative, generally an electro-mechanical device that is directed by a computer system program or electronic circuitry. Robotics can be independent or semi-autonomous and variety from humanoids such as Honda's Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility (ASIMO) and TOSY's TOSY Ping Pong Playing Robot (TOPIO) to industrial robotics, jointly set throng robotics, as well as tiny nano robotics. By simulating a realistic look or automating motions, a robotic might communicate a sense of knowledge or idea of its own.

The Future of Artificial Intelligence - Up Next
Back in the 1990s, Jeffrey Hawkins became both rich and famous when he invented the Palm Pilot—a device that in no small way ushered in a whole new era of mobile computing. These days, though, he’s on a far more ambitious mission. His goal: to build a machine that can think and reason on its own by mimicking the workings of the human brain. In this edition of Up Next, Hawkins opines on the both risks and rewards of artificial intelligence. Series: "Up Next: Perspectives on the Future of Everything"

 

Rise of the Robots: What skills will we need in the future economy and how do we get them?
Time and again -- from the spinning wheel to the steam engine -- technology has had disruptive implications for the workforce and the skills they require. Today it is not just manual jobs that stand to be transformed or replaced by machines: computers and robots are increasingly threatening to take over white collar work too, from accounting to translation, and from logistics to financial services.

 

Max Tegmark—The Future of Life with AI (and Other Powerful Technologies)
Prof. Max Tegmark will explore how we humans have repeatedly underestimated not only the size of our cosmos (and hence our future opportunities), but also the power of our humans minds to understand it and develop technologies with the power to enrich or extinguish humanity.

Artificial Intelligence: The Risks Could Outweigh the Rewards
Artificial Intelligence: The Risks Could Outweigh the Rewards

 

Bart Selman, " The Future of AI: Benefits and Risks"
The development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology is accelerating. A range of transformative innovations now appear likely within the next decade, including self-driving cars, real-time speech-to-speech translation, fully automated image recognition, and autonomous robots. These technologies will have a substantial level of both autonomy and intelligence. This seminar series considers this issue from a range of perspectives, including machine ethics (Should an autonomous vehicle swerve to save several people at the cost of endangering the life of its passenger?), human labor and employment (Will AI systems cause massive unemployment?), autonomous decision-making (Will an AI decide if you get a loan? Or get an operation?), as well as concerns about the potential emergence of superhuman intelligence (Will a super-AI work for our benefit?).
