Love ’em or hate ’em, robots….

Leila Takayama is an expert on robots, she is interested in building robots that interact with people, that do things for people in their day-to-day lives, not just in factories and on battlefields.

We all are intimidated by robots, but that goes away when we interact with them. We quickly fall into talking to them like they’re alive, like they’re our partners, or pets.

Scientists are making robots easier to live and work with. Now robots have body language, so we can interact with them easily.:)

“We are likely to see the emergence of towering megastructures as well as sub-aquatic cities and transportation via advanced flying drones – some of which could be strong enough to transport entire houses on holiday.”

Dr Aderin-Pocock said: “Remember, these are just predictions for the century ahead, but the technical and medical breakthroughs are moving at pace and an ever increasing life expectancy you may not need to take my word on it, you might just be around to see it for yourself.” “its biggest challenge ever”
