If you could design your own person robot, what would you ask it to do?
Today I’m here at the MIT Museum in Cambridge, MA, exploring the robotics exhibit. One activity here engages children to think about robots, what they really are (artificial intelligence) and what is the best use for them.
One child has a very practical use for her ideal robot, “It could be used as a pillow and make me macaroni and cheese.”
A young boy hopes his robot would “stop mommy and daddy from fighting.”
Another boy hopes robots would “help humans, not replace them.” But his older brother isn’t so idealistic. He’d like his robot to “enslave humanity.”
My ideal service robot would apply sunscreen to my back before I head to Hookipa to surf.
What serive would your personal robot perform?
