As said in this video, it does seem a bit terrifying and surprising to actually learn about and realize just how much bots are, for lack of a better phrase, taking over the world in terms of professions and labor and whatnot. It’s quite a traumatic thought to think that automation is inevitable. But I do agree that the time is now to start thinking about what we ought to do to compete and/or beat robots when it comes to professions. Perhaps that is where the world is headed, it if is indeed inevitable. I do, however, feel like maybe we as a human race should try to work together with the creations (robots) we make in harmony and unison rather than letting one rule over the other. It reminds me a bit of the 2004 film “I, Robot” It’s crazy to think the world might have reached this level after all!
It is scary to think how true this all is. It is also amazing how many jobs a robot can do, I mean write music? As said in the video. evolution is inevitable but to what extent? If robots take over some of the most popular jobs what will we do, how can you possibly beat something that is already basically perfect. One of the craziest things is the ability of robots to have creativity, something that we thought was special.
I feel like in two generations from now it's all going to be like Wall-E. This is really freaky, especially how robots actually have creative minds and their capacity is bigger than ours. I see Baxter and he seems slow, like a maid that's just an old lady and takes forever doing stuff for you, but bots will get better and better. I feel like bots will take over eventually because they have minds now and will be better than us and not care about us. It's sad to think we'll be the next horses and soon be jobless.
Robotics is just another step toward inevitable technological singularity. Looking at Vernor Vinge's theory, supported by Moore's law, it's apparent that technological singularity will occur sometime during this century. How I feel about this, I'm not sure.
I do not like this idea of Robots taking over the task of humans. Yes it is cheaper because robots can get more done and for example can build cars 24 hours 7 days a week with just the use of electricity but this is our world we are talking about, it will not benefit our society in the years to come it will only create more poverty and unemployment for the middle class.
I have another theory that might happen if aliens come. Just like what happened with the "New world" back in 1492. When Columbus discovered America, many illnesses came with them. So if alien ever come to this world, all the illnesses will come and we will all die...
i like how the people create the robots but i don't like how robots create more robots because i feel that if one day they are going to take control of the city and then of the world like on the movie i robot.
It gives me chills at the thought of robot taking control of the human roles. I don't know, I think that it's because I watched too many robot movies where robots take control. Or movies where robots are just everywhere. IRobot for example, that was creepy.
I would watch this whole video but it's 15 minuets long and I'm too lazy. But it does scare me to think that robots could take over the world and we would have to listen to them. Baxter kind of annoys me though, he moves too slowly. He needs coffee.
