Future of Higher Ed: Collaborative Robots as Future Colleagues

Future jobs within technology sectors, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, robotics, nanotechnology, 3D-printing, genetics, space sciences, and biotechnology are expected to dominate in the coming decades. Due to this, new frameworks and curriculums are going to be developed to respond to the rate of change and complexity of employment. Educational programs will shift toward innovation and academic settings will require a simultaneous treatment of adopting robots able to collaborate with both instructors and students.

Human Attitudes toward the Robot in the Room

The increasing presence of robots in society calls for a deeper understanding into what attitudes humans have toward robots. People may treat robots as mechanical artifacts, or may consider them to be intentional agents.

This might result in explaining robots’ behavior as stemming from operations of the mind (intentional interpretation), or as a result of mechanical design (mechanical interpretation). A quick look at the robotics industry market size research shows that robots including industr

Killer Robots Could Cause Mass Atrocities

Robots will be used as soldiers in the future.

Robots will be used as soldiers in the future. In fact, some robots as well as drones are already being deployed by the military. Intelligent and autonomous robots programmed by humans to target and kill could commit crimes in the future. Unless, there is a treaty for robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to be responsibly used.

Having the technology that can build robots that kill available does not mean we have to use it. As Spiderman's uncl

The Rise of Collaborative Industrial Robots in Advanced Manufacturing

Mechanical creatures and concepts similar to robots can be found in history from about 400 BCE. The first real industrial robot was used in 1937; it was a crane-like device with five movement axes, a grab hand that could turn around its own axis and was powered by one electric motor.

The first patented robot was produced by the American company Unimation in 1956. Back then, robots were also called programmable transfer machines since their only task was to move objects from one point to another
