  1. 1. Robots: the computer-controlled machines Aroob Kazim 200800340 Information Technology
  2. 2. Introduction In the past, the human labor and the aid of domesticated animals, both gave the efforts to build the earliest societies. When the machines were invented to perform repetitive tasks, like “lifting water and grinding grain”, and mechanics and complex mechanisms were developed, human labor became less important. As a result, more technological advances developed slightly and widely spread. Electronics was a major technological advance that led to the creation of the “autonomous robots” by William Grey in 1948. In 1954, George Devol invented a digital and programmable robot and called it “Unimate”, that later on was used to move hot metal objects by General Motors in 1960.

  5. 5. Robots invention Why use robots? <ul><li>1948: the invention of the robots by the British robotics pioneer; William Grey Walter </li></ul><ul><li>The robot’s creating notion and it’s creation through ages </li></ul>Robots <ul><li>Humans wanted a machine to rely on, because robots never get tired and help the humans by different tasks all the time. Will discuss the reasons more under the advantages of the robots label. </li></ul>

  9. 9. The robots’ influence, and their future <ul><li>In the future, people and robots can go side by side in their lives in each area. In several areas they are irreplaceable now already. </li></ul><ul><li>Replace many hard-working human workers with robots. </li></ul>Conclusion <ul><li>Who knows exactly how this term “human and robots” will be translated into future. Humans and robots that complement each other – they prosper together and live together. However, Complicated tasks are still best performed by human beings with real brainpower. </li></ul>
