Robotics have advanced a tremendous amount in recent year but could we be going too far? We have developed robotics such as self driving cars and robots that do our everyday home activities. This could be seen as a good or bad thing, but the negatives shine more brightly to me. The reason I find more pressing is the connection and personal growing that comes with these actions. If robots take over home chores, kids could lose their discipline or drive to do anything physical. Another issue is the possibility of us losing robots or robotics. If this happens, we won’t know how to do these common activities. There are also the unknowns. These include the interaction between the robots, how it does the activity, the lack of adapting to human wants and needs, etc. We do not know how these robots will interact with animals either. We don’t know if it is safe to leave them alone for long periods of time or is they will malfunction. This is speculated here.
It seems like the negatives and unknowns make full automation not worth it. If we do get to this point only negative events can happen afterwards. We need humans to do these activities because they know how to please others and can appeal to needs and wants. Human interaction is needed for us to continue and this automation would halt that.Tags: advancing negatives Robots
