I am fascinated by robots.
That’s not just because they are cool but because I think that even within my lifetime robots will become a key part of our lives.
As much as there are all sorts of doomsday scenarios with robots I think their biggest impact will be as a disruptor, at some point they will over take what we can do ourselves or become cheap enough to supplant humans in an area they value.
Not only that I think the gap between us and machines will close as the limitations of the flesh turn to frustration as machines outdo us.
Expect more dramas that involve robots in the years ahead as I think we are just starting to explore the idea now that it’s much more possible.
