THE ROBOTIC ERA AS PART OF INTEGRATION INTO HUMAN DAILY LIFE

Robots are getting closer to our daily lives. We analyse how they can be integrated into society and the latest developments in this regard.  Robotics is one of the clear trends of the future. The possibility of a machine adopting an almost human appearance and being able to operate, almost entirely, as a normal person is a concept that intrigues, interests and, at the same time, intimidates.

The most obvious example of the advance of technology towards the rise of robotics and artificial intelligence is the project developed by Google (DeepMind). This project led to the AlphaGo supercomputer, which recently managed to beat the Go World Champion, a more complex game than chess and whose high number of combinations makes it an almost impossible challenge for a machine.

The next challenge set by the computer giant is even more ambitious. DeepMind Program Leaders want a supercomputer to be able to defeat the best players in Starcraft, a major milestone.


Today’s science fiction is tomorrow’s real science. With this intense progress in artificial intelligence and work such as that done by Boston Dynamics, robotics is beginning to move from a future theme to a present-day theme. Robots will complement humans even in the most complex tasks. We will see from robots in charge of caring and cleaning the home to robots capable of offering us medical assistance. The fact is that many of the current professions can be performed, at some point, by a robot, which will be a fundamental part of for example, industry 4.0.robot.


But experts go further and predict a society in which robots and human beings will coexist in parallel and under equal conditions. A society in which, at first glance, it will be impossible to distinguish between a human being and a robot, and in which both will have access to the same opportunities.


Work is already underway on the creation of the first Robotic Rights. Based on these predictions, there are already small associations around the world working on the creation of those known as "Robotic Rights", a list equivalent to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights collected by the United Nations during the 1940s. They seek to preserve the integrity of robots and their consistent integration into human society.


All these initiatives strongly impact the paradigm in which we live. Robots replacing human beings at work, diagnosing diseases, or with a declaration similar to Human Rights. The doubts do nothing but happen with regard to this trend. But remember: fifty years, the same skepticism was applied to virtual reality, smartphones and autonomous vehicles. However, today, they are already a reality.
