Prepare For The Robot Revolution

Robots Ready To Run The World

Researchers predict there will be a surge in the worldwide dependency of robots during the next decade.

Whilst it has previously been considered it will take a long time for robots to match humans and human-controlled technology, it seems the moment is now imminent. As the International Federation of Robotics has stated, the next three years will see a phenomenal rise in the use of robots.

An intensive study into the possible achievements of robots has allowed scientists to surmise there will be an amalgamation between humans and robots. Antonio Lopez Palaez, co-author of the research and a Professor of Sociology at Spain’s National Distance Learning University said,

“Just as we depend on mobile phones and cars in our daily lives, the next 15 years will see mass hybridization between humans and robots.”

In the US robots are already being employed in logistics support by controlling unmanned vehicles. Whilst pilotless airplanes are being guided by robots, so confident are scientists of the potential of these machines, it has been suggested 40 per cent of the world’s armies will be made up of robots by the year 2020.

Armies of robots, robotic partners and workforces made up entirely of walking and talking machines, suggests the world may be heading towards a robotic revolution.
