One of the major places that robotics are being seen today is in law enforcement and military. When a situation is too dangerous for any human, a robot is sent in to do the dirty work. Whether the job is to disarm a bomb or or map a mine field losing a robot is nowhere near losing a person. However there are still many robots being built to resemble humanity. The Asimo built by Honda can run climb stairs and even play instruments!
Could Robots Ever truly Think? The one thing that seems to separate humans from machines is our ability to think and learn. Machines have to be programmed to perform a task. However, would it be possible to create a thinking machine? If machines ever a machine was built to truly think, it would be a great triumph in science but it would also cause many problems. People aren’t ready for Thinking machines. We are comfortable being superior to them. Also thinking robots may choose not to do the jobs we created them for. They may even demand the rights that we as humans enjoy everyday.
