Robots replacing human workers may leave millions out of job

Published on Oct 29, 2014

Lowe’s is breaking ground by testing robots to help customers navigate their often massive stores and assist with purchases. Although no plans yet exist to implement the autonomous bots nationwide, some believe this is a big leap towards deeply integrating robotics into our daily lives, which experts believe will happen by 2025. RT’s Sam Sacks takes a look at what impact this may have on the human workforce.

When considering the word “robot,” the first image that comes to mind is often a cold, metal machine, often performing a single or limited set of functions. A robot may possess appendages that resemble human anatomy, like an arm or an eye, but those are purely functional.

Some engineers, however, are trying to perfect robots whose function is to be more like humans. . . . Read Complete Report with cool slide show.

From GizMag By  August 28, 2013

Brain-to-brain interfacing – it’s previously been accomplished between two rats, but now it’s been achieved between two humans. Rajesh Rao, who studies computational neuroscience at the University of Washington, has successfully used his mind to control the hand of his colleague, Andrea Stucco. The two were linked via a Skype connection.

The experiment, which was conducted on Aug. 12th but announced just yesterday, worked as follows … Read Complete Report

(Phys.org) —Researchers designing adult bipedal robots have faced a challenge in limitations in a robot’s walking pattern. They seek ways to improve on designs to have robots move more naturally. Improving the walking function has been the goal of researchers at the Humanoid Robotics Institute at Waseda University in Japan. Last month, led by Professor Atsuo Takanishi, the team presented the results of their efforts at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in Germany. What they achieved more closely replicates normal human foot movements than before. . . Read Complete Report

From Science Daily

May 28, 2013 — A robot in Cornell’s Personal Robotics Lab has learned to foresee human action in order to step in and offer a helping hand, or more accurately, roll in and offer a helping claw.

Understanding when and where to pour a beer or knowing when to offer assistance opening a refrigerator door can be difficult for a robot because of the many variables it encounters while assessing the situation. A team from Cornell has created a solution. . . . Read Complete Report

Atlanta GA (SPX) May 03, 2013

Roboticists are currently developing machines that have the potential to help patients with caregiving tasks, such as housework, feeding and walking. But before they reach the care recipients, assistive robots will first have to be accepted by healthcare providers such as nurses and nursing assistants.

Based on a Georgia Institute of Technology study, it appears that they may be welcomed with open arms depending on the tasks at hand. . . . Read Complete Report
