Are Robots Going To KILL Your Next Job Or Create It?

Are Robots Going To KILL Your Next Job Or Create It? | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Everyone agrees that some jobs for humans will be lost to robots, and some jobs for humans will be created because of robots. But there is a growing debate about the math. Will the robotics revolution be an aggregate job creator or job killer for humans?

«Real Humans»: pourquoi fabriquer des robots à notre image?

«Real Humans»: pourquoi fabriquer des robots à notre image? | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it
La série «Real Humans», qui commence en France le jeudi 4 avril sur Arte, met en scène, dans un futur proche, des robots humanoïdes très avancés. Mais qui y a-t-il de si intéressant à fabriquer des machines qui nous ressemblent?

luiy's curator insight, April 8, 2013 5:33 AM

Dans la série Real Humans diffusée à partir de ce jeudi soir sur Arte, les robots («Hubots») ne répondent pas tous aux critères de perfection que nous pourrions vouloir enfin réunir dans un être humain. Si la plupart arborent une plastique irréprochable, ça n’est pas le cas de certains robots de basses œuvres. [ATTENTION SPOILER SUR LA SUTE DE CE PARAGRAPHE] Moralement non plus, les Hubots ne semblent pas tous particulièrement exemplaires et certains vont violer les lois d’Asimov, qui sont implicitement citées dans la série. Plus étonnant, un robot-mégère-ménagère, va jusqu’à administrer à son insu des somnifères à son propriétaire [FIN DU SPOILER]. 

 

Dans cette série, par ailleurs visiblement bien documentée et plutôt convaincante, point comme presque toujours dans la science-fiction, l’éternelle crainte d’un soulèvement des robots.


Pour qu’une telle issue soit envisageable, il faudrait d’abord que nous ayons résolu le problème de l’intelligence artificielle, ce qui, n’en croyez pas la robohype, n’est absolument pas le cas. Pourtant, avec cette crainte à l’esprit, nous continuons à fabriquer des robots humanoïdes qui nous ressemblent de plus en plus. Quel est donc l’intérêt de fabriquer de faux humains? N’y a-t-il pas une infinité de choses que d’autres formes que les notres réaliseraient mieux? Au-delà de l’apparence, pourquoi vouloir mettre en œuvre des éléments de personnalité et des émotions dans les robots?

Somehow i can't stop thinking, "Next step, Dr. Frankenstein" -

It's maybe not rationeal thinking but i find this so scaring. Imagine if it was you on the table and the robot arms start moving above you - huuuu it's freaking scaring ;-)

Szabolcs Kósa's comment, January 16, 2013 9:00 AM
I agree this can be scary, however you can expect completely autonomous surgical robots to appear in the very near future. that will be much more scarier than a human controlled one, that's for sure

Well, I think I will be deeply asleep and we build them to be very good , well i hope so ;)

Machine Beauty and Our Bionic Future

Machine Beauty and Our Bionic Future | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Welcome to the brave new world of Machine Beauty, where our new willingness to replace our limbs with superior prosthetic devices hints at our technological future as a species. Maybe futurist Ray Kurzweil was right after all when he predicted the merging of man and machine within our lifetime as part of the great Singularity.

[VIDEO] - EXOSKELETON: Festo ExoHand

The ExoHand from Festo -- an active manual orthosis with sensitive fingers
The ExoHand from Festo is an exoskeleton that can be worn like a glove. The fingers can be actively moved and their strength amplified; the operator's hand movements are registered and transmitted to the robotic hand in real time.

Afin de les rendre plus performants, les robots ont désormais accès au sens du toucher

Afin de les rendre plus performants, les robots ont désormais accès au sens du toucher | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Les robots ressemblent toujours plus aux humains et se dotent désormais de capteurs sensitifs capables de leur procurer des sensations de toucher semblables à celles des hommes.

The Future of Artificial Intelligence

The Future of Artificial Intelligence | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Robots are here to stay. They will be smarter, more versatile, more autonomous, and more like us in many ways. We humans will need to adapt to keep up.

New technologies, new moralities

Religious and other organizations will define and attempt to regulate the ways in which human treat humanoid robots, since they will be considered quasi-human, sentient creatures that must be treated with respect and not abused. Thus, the changing legal and social framework will deal with the proper use of robots by humans as well as the proper behavior of robots toward humans, and new sets of “post-Asimov” laws will emerge.

 

Finally, a few concluding thoughts. The rapid increase in the number and sophistication of autonomous systems, including humanoid robots, lead to dramatic changes in society. Robots will assume an increasing share of human work and responsibility, thus creating a major social problem with unemployment and the relations of humans and robots. I believe that new frameworks for these interactions will emerge within the next 25 to 50 years. If they do not, there may be neo-Luddite rebellions, in which humans will attempt to destroy large numbers of robots. Those of us who design, program, and implement robots have a major responsibility to assist in the creation and implementation of patterns of behavior and legal systems to ensure that robots and humans co-evolve and co-exist for the benefit of society.

 

Robots are here to stay. They will be smarter, more versatile, more autonomous, and more like us in many ways. We humans will need to adapt to this coming world.

A world without limits between the real and the virtual world.

 

New technologies are blurring the boundaries between the real and the virtual world. The brain can control a machine, and even perceive it as its own body. Can that improve our lives?

At Barcelona University, scientists are working on a European Research Project to link a human brain to a robot using skin electrodes and video goggles so that the user feels they are actually in the android body wherever it is in the world.

 

The electrodes measure brain impulses enabling a person to control the robot's actions without moving their own limbs. The idea is to enable severely disabled people to enter the world via a real-life avatar.

 

Using a remote avatar, anyone can travel without leaving home. But to make the experience feel more realistic, several senses need to work together.

In a laboratory in Pisa, scientists are testing a chair that vibrates in time with 3D video playback, recreating some of the physical aspects of walking.

An even deeper immersion into the virtual world becomes possible with robotic exoskeletons that simulate physical interactions, and with advanced 3D projection systems.

Touching virtual objects, feeling their texture and weight, will make the digital world more natural and easier to live in.

 

But what if virtual models could change the real world, making it more accessible? That's the goal of another European project involving hundreds of diabled people in several countries.

Scientists use cameras and sensors to study how physically impaired people move, getting a better idea of their average physical limitations.

 

The data is used to simulate how motor-impaired people cope with various tasks - such as opening the glove compartment in a car.

With these models, industrial designers will know in advance how safe and convenient their new products are, and can adapt them better for users with physical limitations.

Seeing the screen through the eyes of someone with advanced glaucoma, using the mouse as a person with tremors... makes it easier to understand other people's physical challenges, helping us move towards a world without limits.
