4.) (Aspect 4) Robots work in places that humans cannot work, such as in mines and chemical factories. Robots can g places that humans can't reach and do those jobs humans can't do.
Salvatore Ross's comment, April 4, 2014 11:12 AM
5.) (Aspect 3) The robotic industry creates jobs, people have to build the robots and mandate the robots as well. When new robotic automation products are created by companies create jobs out of the production sector that are made to sell and market. Jobs include robotic product technical support, sales, customer service, and marketing.

6.) (Aspect 3) Baxter, is trying to bring all the benefits of having robots in small businesses that haven't had access to this sort of technology before. Baxter is just not only inexpensive; but also that the robot can be easily programmed to do all kinds of different stuff by humans without any special operator training. Rethink is going in the opposite direction with robots that bring human skills to to a human workplace, creating jobs by making existing workers more efficient and lowering the cost of production to levels that are competitive with offshore manufacturing.

2. (Aspect 3) Google robots will destroy humanity. Unintended consequence the robots will have artificial intelligence which will cause an intelligence explosion in which the robots will out think/out maneuver humans and then recognize humans as the problem. If Google does not control the artificial intelligence, we may never be able to fix the problem.

1.) (Aspect 3) Robots and computers are handling everyday tasks, which is making our lives more automated. This definitely brings multiple benefits, but it is unsure who is to blame on the risks. People believe that an automated future is safe. Safety is something society needs to approach robots with care.
Salvatore Ross's comment, April 4, 2014 11:28 AM
7.) (Aspect 3) Advances in technology have brought many benefits and changes to our society. Software for technology has become complex, humans are able to rely on the automation of tasks that would otherwise require much time and effort. However, this complexity also creates problems for which our solutions are steadily more dependent on the power of computers. Also, technology has brought benefits that bring forward new issues that require ever greater technical creativity to solve.
Salvatore Ross's comment, April 4, 2014 11:32 AM
8.) (Aspect 3) Robots already have a presence, but the technology is still new and giving machines too much responsibility can be harmful. As machines become more intelligent, they will be placed in situations where they will make decisions for humans. It is important to continue our development with a strong understanding of the risks. Nothing is guaranteed with robots, especially safety.

8.) (4) Inspiration to create artificial machines involving human and animal cognitive systems is due to human growing understanding of its physical embodiment and environmental embeddedness. Applied robotics has been developing embodied cognition, with goals that are realistic and worthwhile.

9.) (4) Cybernetics, the field of study centered on the analysis of feedback loops in control of animal behavior, is for robots with real-time reactions to surroundings. Feedback loops relies on the results of previous actions to create future actions. Positive and negative feedback loops are necessary to maintain within a functional range, developed by cybernetics.

1.) (3) The three laws for human robot interaction were created by Isaac Asimov, Asimov's laws. A robot must protect a human, not injure a human. A robot must listen to a human, with regards to law one. A robot must protect itself, with regards to law one and law two.

2.) (1) Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) is the collaborative study of interaction tendencies between humans and robots. Those who specialize in HRI come from fields such as engineering, computer science, social sciences, and humanities.

6.) (3) Human robot interaction has research challenges dealing with simple and complex contexts. Major researches such as the following: multi-modal sensing and perception; real time human reaction sensors, design and human factors; human characteristics, developmental and epigenetic robotics; programming, social/service/assistive robotics; interaction between human and robot, and education.

9.) (Aspect 3)Technological unemployment is an aspect in the manual workforce that causes concern for many people. From speaking to identifying and understanding, the amount of actions that robots capabilites expand everyday. According to McAfee, the upsurge in the robotic development will benefit society in a way that manual labor never could have. <br>

10.) (Aspect 3) The technological progress allows for the continued progress of society. The replacement of human beings in the manual workforce results in an increase in product output, which results in lower price tags for products. Once the machines have the capability to perform certain manual tasks, people will be taken out from the hardships of the workforce. It will allow people to explore aspects of the world that weren't possible due to the hardships of workforce-based society.

10.) (video) At some point in our lifetime, humans will have to interact with robots in order to survive. Relationships must form, so that the goal of human-robot interaction is possible. A human must feel affectionate around robots including being touched, communicating and decision making. Sensors, such as light and sonar, will help robots mimic the actions of humans, from emotion to physical to physiological.

3.) (2) Humans rely on complex social connections when communicating,such as direction and body orientation. Simon is a robot created by Georgia Tech to mimic humans, so robots can interact with humans naturally. In order for Simon to complete these tasks,it needs to be able to recognize gestures, such as cues, how to speak and respond.
Salvatore Ross's comment, March 7, 2014 11:12 AM
4.) (3) When robots spend time around humans, it is much easier for human and robots to interact because humans will become comfortable for robot help with touch involved. Humans believe the robots touch intent is important. "Primarily people have been focused on how can we make the robot safe, how can we make it do its task effectively. But that's not going to be enough if we actually want these robots out there helping people in the real world" (Professor Charles Kemp.
Salvatore Ross's comment, March 7, 2014 11:36 AM
5.) (4) Teaching robots to move like humans is natural, but not as important to human robot interaction. It is important though, so it is easier to understand what a robot wants or doing, and they move precisely.
