POSTPONED What Does a Robotic Future Really Look Like?
What technology and robotics are doing for us in the present, innovations in robotics today and how we will adapt to these future robotic technologies.
At the mention of the word ‘robot’, most people imagine a futuristic human-like robot that can see and hear, can walk and talk, and can manipulate things with its ‘hands’ – like Sonny from the movie iRobot, or maybe even the Terminator. There aren’t many (if any) robots like this just yet, but actually, robots are already all around us – they are vacuuming our homes, manufacturing our cars and assembling our electronics – and robotic technologies are improving every day. To predict what our robotic future might look like, we will look at how technology has changed the world in the past, what technology and robotics are doing for us in the present, innovations in robotics today and how we will adapt to these future robotic technologies.
