Is Robot Domination Possible In The Future?
Is robot domination possible? The most obvious answer by most people will be a very big “NEVER!”. But is it really possible? Maybe and maybe not.
Invade And “Take Over”
In a way, I guess we can say that robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) will “take over” the world. Let us be realistic. With technology, a lot of things around us are related to robots and artificial intelligence. They control almost everything in any aspect of society.
Take our own homes, for example. The basic component of a community is the family. Our homes are full of modern technology. From our televisions, to washing machines and other appliances, to our gadgets and devices. Of late, even in thee commercial aspect, robots can be found. We now have the carpenter robot. And even a burger-flipping robot.
Technology is the product of human imagination, intelligence and drive to improve lives. Maybe the saying “nothing is impossible” is the driving force of these people.
Advantages Of Robotics
Just like everything else, robotics can also have advantages and disadvantages. Advantageous in a way that they can replace workers on very heavy work. And they can finish the work faster. There are also functions or tasks that humans may find hard to accomplish. In the medical field, for example. In some medical procedures, surgeons and other medical practitioners use robots and advance technology to help them complete the procedures. This can save millions of lives.
If we take it in a positive perspective, robots can be a great help to us humans. It only depends on how we use and control them.
Of course if there are advantages, there are also disadvantages. For one, they are prone to malfunction. Since they are mechanical, malfunction is possible. Another disadvantage is that humans may develop laziness. There is a possibility that if there are robots around to help humans with their work, they may just rely on the robots. But still it depends on how we handle the situation.
The most obvious disadvantage is it is expensive. Ordinary people may not be able to afford it. So despite of their desire to have robots help them, its cost may be a hindrance for the fulfillment of their dreams.
Robots are developed by humans. So it is up to us, humans if we let them control us or let these robots know who the boss is.
