Robots – job tailored ones – can be simple devices unless they are to work on humans who are all notoriously unpredictable. As a result the study and building of humanoid robots is a subject that deserves to stand alone.
Even though I am (as often stated) a mere layperson this is a subject the writer can’t help but be intrigued in and will, from time to time, report his findings here in this category.
Here is a link to get going: IEEE Spectrum on humanoids and it includes a particular article that I found very interesting (they all are of interest).
Such robots are an inevitable part of our future but in such a world where do these robots and unionised personal service workers fit in? I predict lots of discussion.
