Worry or not these are the latest robot trends

Worry or not these are the latest robot trends

Robots are here to stay. Technology has advanced to such a degree that those who remain resolutely anti-robot can be forgiven for feeling a little overwhelmed by it all. Most media and business focus is on how robots can improve the overall quality of life for human beings on planet earth. Because time and space does not allow an extensive analysis of all the latest developments and trends in the world of robots only a few themes can be mentioned here. In the weeks and months to come there will be more breaking news stories. Media focuses on the attention,…

Robots Dotting the I’s and Dashing the codes

Robots Dotting the I’s and Dashing the codes

There’s a lady who shares her house with a cat and six children. Two of the children are extremely unusual. This lady is fairly up to date with technology. For instance, she has taken advantage of the young tech company, Wonder Workshop, and its innovative toys. This lady, hands full, is also a fairly good mother because she seems to believe in allowing her kids to mix pleasure with business. Or more specifically, allow them to play with toys that basically educate them at the same time. Speaking of children, the older unusual kid in this lady’s house is a…

School for robot kids

School for robot kids

Brett is a spoiled brat. He is armed to the teeth with toys that other kids only dream about and go gaga over it. Every day he gets to play with planes, blocks, plastic guns and play-play home and kitchen wear gadgets.  Like most normal kids his age, Brett the brat has arms and legs and a developing brain which he can use to apply to the games at hand. If he was not so busy playing he would not mind telling curious onlookers to mind their own business and that what he is doing is not kid’s stuff anyway….

Robot genocide

Robot genocide

The war against hard-working robots is becoming more violent. In fact, in some cases it has become deadly. The earlier death of the lovable hitchBOT was suspected to have been deliberate. The motivations for attacking diligent machines, whose only purpose in life is to work, may be understandable, but remain questionable. Even since before the Industrial Revolution, the history of antagonism against the use of machinery at the cost of human labour has been fraught with tension, unsettling conflict and sometimes violence. There is an old religious saying that says, “violence, in essence, achieves nothing.” The extreme measures being taken…

Will they or won’t they steal human jobs?

Will they or won’t they steal human jobs?

Some say they won’t. Others are saying they will. While the debate rages on, sometimes to the point of irrational and useless statements being made, robots continue to quietly evolve and get on with the jobs that they were designed and manufactured to do. They make no arguments at this stage. Companies love them because they do not collectivize into unions and raise grievances with their bosses, they just carry on working until someone or something tells them to stop or simply switches them off. Another argument is that robots won’t be contributing to the creation of new jobs for…

Oceans of robots

Oceans of robots

Soon the world’s polluted streams, rivers, and oceans will be swimming with robots. Elsewhere, while this world appears to be growing on the idea of familiar sitings of drones, technology is touted to be advancing the cause of cyborgs becoming a third set of ears and eyes towards increasing the pace of human, not robot, evolution. But down by the river, scientists are setting to sail a batch of robots to help them learn more about global water passages. This advanced idea to measure the furthest reaches of oceans, rivers, and lakes was born at the Queensland University of Technology…

Robots are not to blame for job losses

Robots are not to blame for job losses

It is ultimately the fault of human behaviour when life’s labours bring them down. There are many human beings, on the side of labour rights, who blame modern technology for the massive job losses taking place around the world. They often argue that multinational companies in particular are often only concerned with their bottom lines and the imperative to generate annual profits and attractive dividend payments for their shareholders. Today, as the technologies to do this are advancing at a rapid pace, the creation of robots is being blamed for yet more job cuts and looming employment crises in the…

You guys are doing it all wrong

You guys are doing it all wrong

If you want to kill off the growing robot population, particularly those that are manufactured to kill, then you had better done it right way. This may be a generous bit of advice from one pro-android writer who believes that the alarmist views of high profile proponents against killer robots have been blown out of proportion. The writer (who for the purposes of this story will remain anonymous for now) acknowledges the immortalization of killer robots in science fiction stories, but believes that the reality is far, far different and will remain so in the future. This writer believes that…

Turning robots into soccer stars

Turning robots into soccer stars

Sepp Blatter will not be feeling threatened by these potential rivals. By the time this innovative tournament truly kicks off, Blatter will be long gone fabricating new stories in his study. The octogenarian may even be dead. Messi and Ronaldo may not have to worry yet, but perhaps the average high school or college soccer player may have to pull his or her socks up. RoboCup 2015 has just been launched in the Australian state of Victoria. Over 500 junior and high school scholars have coached their robotic stars into championship contenders. This inaugural event is being hosted by the…

Good, down under robots are going to school

Good, down under robots are going to school

Much like their creators, there are bad robots, some very bad, so much so that they will kill. Then there are good robots whose only motivation is to help humanoids if only by design. Now, these are very good robots. They are going to school. Two Australian schools will be graced with the presence of robots in their classrooms. Kids being what they are, this will only be a joy to them. In Australia, research is being conducted into how robots can be integrated into human learning environments by way of primary and high school classroom scenarios. The three year…
