The future of robotics: Not quite magical yet, but more than just dirty jobs | ZDNet

The future of robotics: Not quite magical yet, but more than just dirty jobs | ZDNet | Developments of Robotics | Scoop.it
Experts argue that, up until now, robots have been limited to jobs in the following three realms: dirty, dangerous or dull.
Cameron Hare's insight:

This page talks about the current state of robot-designed jobs being dirty, dangerous or dull, and how in the future that will not be the case instead becoming more consumer friendly . It also addresses how some people feel about drones and how it would be a problem needed to be overcome to be apart of society, as well as a small paragraph on the resources required. This site could be used as a reference for the essay  by use of its talk about the current robot-designed jobs to what the future robot-designed jobs will be in the coming years, as well as its talk about the current feelings people have about robots and how it is something that must be integrated into society in the years to come.

Robots, Drones and the Uncertain Future of Work

Robots, Drones and the Uncertain Future of Work | Developments of Robotics | Scoop.it
If machines can do something better than people can, it would be senseless to hold back progress for fear of lost jobs. Finding or inventing a new job, however, is harder than it once was.
Cameron Hare's insight:

This article talks about some of the more negative impacts the future of robotics will have on the people, mainly in the way of economics, and taking jobs away. While it still does mention the benefits of these future applications and acknowledges the necessity and the inevitability of them, it does not shy away from the downsides of them and goes into detail of how it will effect the working man. I plan on using this in the essay to show off the possible bad side effects of the future robotics, while the other references have done a good job at showing the marvel of the robotics this is the first article I have found that has gone into great detail about the issues that come with bringing robotics to the working field.

Robofish Paves Way for Softer Machines

Robofish Paves Way for Softer Machines | Developments of Robotics | Scoop.it
Why kinder and gentler robots are the future.
Cameron Hare's insight:

This article goes to reveal the new robotic fish capable of moving just like the evolved organism its named after while still being soft to touch. The hope generated from this robot is the creation of future robots that will be able to move with flexibility and precision while still being safe and soft so that humans will not be harmed. Since robots are becoming apart of daily life this has been a concern and this soft robotic fish is believed to be paving the way towards the future of robotics. I plan on using this article in the essay to talk about the application of soft robots and the safety applications of it, and how this will be a probable path to be followed in the next 5 to 10 years.

Google Acquires #Robotics-Design Company Boston Dynamics I #ControlSystems

Google Acquires #Robotics-Design Company Boston Dynamics I #ControlSystems | Developments of Robotics | Scoop.it
Google acquired Boston Dynamics, an engineering and robotics-design company, in a deal that significantly enhances the search giant's robotics expertise.

Via Intriguing Networks, luiy
Cameron Hare's insight:

This website addresses some of the current findings in robotic designs, mainly 4 legged robots that can run and move much like animals do. It also addresses the major companies Google and Amazon and their current use of their own robotic resources and how Google may soon be beyond the robotic car systems and into the custom robots that can perform physical tasks. This website is useful for pointing out not only the advances we have made in robotics but what we are heading towards and the companies that may be the ones making use of it, I plan on making reference with this information about these companies in the essay and how they will probably be the ones marketing the robots to the public in the next 5 to 10 years.

Intriguing Networks's curator insight, December 17, 2013 4:00 AM

Beefig up the Androids just took on a new meaning at Google, the R&D in the area of robotics has been led by the head of the original Android development team .With the acquisition of this serious player Boston Dynamics with military contracts still to be completed has Google just entered a whole new ball game?

luiy's curator insight, December 17, 2013 4:12 AM

Boston Dynamics recently debuted the WildCat, a four-legged robot specifically designed for speedrunning. Developed with funding from DARPA's M3 robotics-engineering program, it can gallop at around 16 miles per hour. While that may not seem very fast, it’s apparent in the top video that the company's goal wasn’t just speedrunning, but rapid movement that mimics the motions of living animals, such as horses and antelopes

Rubin, the former head of Google's Android division, hasn’t revealed many specifics about his plans for its robotics division, but the addition of Boston Dynamics offers some clues.

 

Commentators saw Google’s self-driving cars as the company playing to its strength: intelligent software systems that can be embedded in existing hardware and vehicles. However, by bringing the hardware skills of Boston Dynamics into the fray, it appears that Google is moving beyond robotic car control systems, and into custom robots designed to handle any number of physical tasks.

Meet DARPA’s new generation of robots – Michael Belfiore – Aeon | Developments of Robotics | Scoop.it
The invasion has already begun: the only question is when, not if, humanoid robots will work, play and war beside us
Cameron Hare's insight:

This article goes into not only the future of robotics but also talks about the past and current of robotics, I think this article could be very useful for showing the comparisons between the different times and how much has changed, how much we know will change, and what we expect might change and be implemented in the future. This article does stay in the defense military applications of robots mainly, this is due to where the information is coming from however it does talk a reasonable amount of other applications such as the driver-less cars and humanoid robots which helps provide more variety. I plan on using this article for the previous stated changes in robotic technology as well as going into some of the future applications mentioned that I believe can be implemented in coming years.
