Are Robots replacing humans??

Humans are complex beings with emotions, brains, and cognition that make them a lot different from robots. However, we do not require humans to fix screws, work as firefighters, clean the dirt or defuse bombs (which are dangerous to our lives). Instead, robots replace these jobs to secure our lives.

In my perception robots are rather enhancing humanity through the simplest reason: Robots are controlled by humans and they will continue to be the slaves of their masters.

The history is a proof that if humans use the technology in the right way, then technology has always been a boon to humanity right from its existence! Let’s get back to that era of human messengers used to move across large areas on foot and running to send messages from one land to the other. Later, wheels, one of the finest inventions in the history of human life, were introduced. Clearly, the invention did take away a lot of jobs as one person alone could now easily and efficiently travel larger distances on a vehicle and deliver hundreds of messages as compared to the earlier scenario where 100 messengers were required to deliver 100 messages, and that was highly time consuming. But the question is, after losing jobs, do you think messengers did nothing? They must not have quit but rather must have done something and that something would have created more jobs for them.

In a similar way, robots are not taking the humans jobs they are encouraging humans to perform task that a robot can’t! Task like creating seamless software, develop life changing solutions, introduce humanity to the products which just makes our lives better and many more responsibilities like this where a robot simply can’t take any charge. Well, its time now to jump into this technology towards robotics to make our lives better and I’m into it.

Robots: A hardware or software

Robot is the most ubiquitous word in daily literature for past few decades; while growing up like all 1980’s born I thought robot as same metal body structure which performs task automatically and support my thought movies like Bicentennial Man, Short Circuit, Terminator 2, etc., made me believe in it. In fact it fascinated to that extent that I started to dream about robotics as my career. Now that I am in robotics and its allied fields for nearly a decade. I thought to compile my thoughts that is robotics really is a hardware or software entity.

If I look into the past of the medieval era one of the most influential figure in history with respect to science was the great genius Leonardo Da Vinci. He was the man who was way head of his times and he left no stones unturned in robotics too, where he came up with mechanical humanoid known as Vitruian Man performing the role of mechanical knight. Even though not much is known about Vitruian Man some NASA scientist claimed it could walk, sit and move jobs like humans.

In the last century, robotics was no different with the metal frames, but it was just clubbed with chips and integrated circuits. The biggest difference here is there control of the robots is done with the help of software programmed to do the specialized task assigned to the robot.

Now presently every person has robots in there pockets, lets assume a simple voice assistant with your mobile phones be Siri/OK Google, when a user ask certain questions to these software apps it replies back with suitable answer as best example of soft bots.

Be any ages we are always surrounded by robots. In my opinion robots can be hardware, software or both. To bottom line the dilemma of robot being a hardware or a software, I would rather go to the epistemology of the word robot which derived from from the Slavic decent word ‘robota’ which means a forced labor whose sole purpose is to serve his master, this make find a synonym robot to control system.
