Future robots will not likely be like the lead in the “Terminator” movies. Many Internet of Everything robots already exist in some homes in the form of household appliances, thermostats and even automated vacuum cleaners.
According to the Moscow Times, Russia is behind the curve when it comes to developing future robots. And, when they are designing and building bots, a lot of the work is outsourced to other countries such as China.
Before Arnold Schwarzen-governor goes back to the future in search for John Connor, there will be many less sophisticated bots helping us with our daily lives.
The Moscow Times says, “While industrial and household, or service, robots are a fast-emerging new global market, Russia so far has acquired only a small portion of it. It buys robots each year by the hundreds, while according to the International Federation of Robotics, in 2012 about 3 million robots were sold worldwide for personal and domestic use and almost 160,000 for industrial application.”
It has now come to the point in our world’s development that the U. N. is considering banning killer robots. This includes fully autonomous killer land bots and well as drones.
I predict there will come a time when we’ll be able to put 100 robots in a room randomly typing at their keyboards an create the Great American novel.
