The ambition of modern robotics goes beyond copying humans – beyond the effort to make walking, talking androids that are indistinguishable from people. Future robots will have superhuman abilities in both the physical and digital realms. They will have the ability to go where we cannot and have minds of their own, thanks to artificial intelligence. They will be fully connected to the digital world, far better at carrying out online tasks than we are.
Join Illah Reza Nourbakhsh for a glimpse into the robotic future! He'll talk about his new book Robot Futures, which examines how we will share our world with these creatures, and how our society could change as it incorporates a race of stronger, smarter beings.
