There are plenty of scientists and engineers working non-stop to make robots more human. And, they've given robots more and more skills.
Here's a rundown of some ways that robots have already become more human:
- They create art.
- They can show empathy.
- They can run and leap. And, dance and ski.
- They show emotions.
- They can be tourist guides.
- They can drive cars.
- They can cook. And, play music.
- They can even assemble IKEA furniture. (BroBible)
This list is going to grow. It's something to be worried about, isn't it?
It might be fun for a while. We can get robots to do some of our dirty work and enjoy our interactions with them. That will be a delightful golden age. And then … They'll turn on us and -- probably -- wipe us out.
So, enjoy this while it lasts?
