Robots are everywhere, and they’re getting increasingly intelligent.
But are they being controlled by us?
We spoke to robot experts to find out.
Robotics professor and robotics expert David Ehrlich told Newsweek, “If you look at the history of robotics, the robot industry was really the culmination of technological innovation and a very large part of the innovation in that field is the use of computers to control robots.”
Ehrlich says we’ve already seen a rise in the use and use of computer programs to control robotics.
But he believes we’re in the early stages of a new robotic trend that could lead to the emergence of a robotic intelligence in the future.
“We’re really entering a time where, with the emergence and proliferation of the Internet, and with the rise of artificial intelligence, the way that robots are programmed is going to be a very significant factor in the emergence,” Ehrles said.
The new robots are getting smarter.
“There is now a lot of information available on the Internet,” Ehlich said.
“That information is going online.
Ehrlench believes the development of AI could make robotics as we know it obsolete. “
If they are smart enough to be programmed to do what they need to do, they’re smart enough and able to learn,” he added.
Ehrlench believes the development of AI could make robotics as we know it obsolete.
“I don’t think robots will ever become as sophisticated as computers,” he said.
But that doesn’t mean robots won’t still be around.
“They’re probably not going to become more intelligent and they certainly aren’t going to replace humans,” he concluded.
