nowadays, robots have the potential to interact with people daily, and in the not-so-distant future, they will play an essential role in human society.
Defined as a mix of electronics, mechanics and programming, a robot is supposed to “sense” information from its environment through its sensors, analyse and deal with the sensor data, come to a decision and carry out necessary actions or perform something in response, regardless of the robot is autonomous, or guided by a human.

Filmmakers, pop science writers, and scientists explain how robots develop intelligence, and potentially emotions. In a live science article, computer scientists, Bill Hibbard explains that robots will have human-like intelligence sometime in the 21st century. Explaining how these AI robots will overtake humans in 2100 he says the robots intelligence will be astounding. In another article by Sony Pictures the authors explain how they have a robot film called “Chappie” that was the first droid to…

Moral in Military, War, and Robots
As we know from the article, the military spends money on the researches of ‘Moral Robots’. This aspect wondered me, because military institutions did not appear very moral respectively ethical to me.
However, I have researched on this topic, and checked if my prejudices were right or not.
As we know, the main task of the military is to protect the national security, while the police protect the inner security. However, a military sometimes helps the police.…
Jibo: The Social Robot that Revolutionizes Social Artificial Intelligence
Spike Jonze’s “Her” (2013), perhaps alarmingly, perhaps disconcertingly, is coming to life in the form of Jibo, a family computer. A family computer means that it is to be used by a collective of individuals and therefore relate to more humans. “Samantha” is a fictional character which became human as its consumer and “it” fell in love with each other. The film said that robots are becoming humanized, they…
The book, The Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future by Martin Ford, has a very interesting and thought-provoking approach to the idea of automation and its effect on people who will be actively searching for jobs in the future. It critically analyses many industries and sectors such as information technology, white-collar jobs, higher education, health care, and consumerism, to determine whether there are any jobs that are safe from becoming fully automated with…
novel? Some may argue to say not, but here is my argument on how he does in fact change very much, in this novel, ‘The Giver’. For starters, we see that Jonas used to be like most everyone else in ‘the community’; emotionless and very much sheltered - robots. Although all of that had changed once he had became the ‘Receiver of Memories’, a very high honored job of utmost respect. Before I pitch my main points, let’s talk a bit more about what ‘the community’ is like, and who exactly Jonas is. We…
As robots get smarter and more widespread, independent cars are bound to end up making life-or-death decisions in unpredictable places, thus taking over or at least seeming to assume moral authority. Weapons systems currently have human operators “in the loop”, simply as they get more advanced, it will be possible to shift to “on the loop” operation, with machines carrying out orders autonomously.
As that occurs, they will be faced with ethical dilemmas. Should a drone fire on a…
