ROBOTS THE NEXT BIG EVENT IN HUMAN HISTORY AND VERY SOON IN OUR PERSONAL LIFE

SHE is the perfect wife, with the body of a Page 3 pin-up and housekeeping skills that put TV's Kim and Aggie to shame.Android Aiko knows speaking, reading, can recognize color, face, objects, able to tell weather, can understand more than 13,000 sentences, can solve math and able to distinguish simple drinks and foods. She will be able to walk in the near future.
If you think she is not perfect enough because you can’t have “sex life” with a robot wife, then you are wrong! According to Le, “her software could be redesigned to simulate her having an orgasm.”





Aiko is actually a robot, a fantasy brought to life by inventor Le Trung.

SOON EVERYBODY WILL BE SURPRISED BY THE EVENTS OVERTAKING OUR PERSONAL LIVES;ROBOTS; SOMETHING MORE INTIMATE AND WIDESPREAD THAN COMPUTERS AND CARS ARE TODAY






 WHILE CARS , VEHICLES AND COMPUTERS ARE   NEEDED; THEY ARE NEVER PART OF OUR PERSONAL AND INTIMATE DAILY LIFE, 24/7 AS ROBOTS ARE GOING TO BE IN FUTURE

As robots have become more advanced and sophisticated, experts and academics have increasingly explored the questions of what ethics might govern robots' behavior, and whether robots might be able to claim any kind of social, cultural, ethical or legal rights.
A moment may come when computers and robots are smarter than humansand how much these abilities might pose a threat or hazard. to humans
There are also concerns about technology which might allow some armed robots to be controlled mainly by other robots
Several such measures reportedly already exist, with robot-heavy countries such as Japan and South Korea[45] having begun to pass regulations requiring robots to be equipped with safety systems, and possibly sets of 'laws' akin to Asimov 's Three laws of robotics,and later laws:-
  1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
  4. A robot must establish its identity as a robot in all cases.
  5. A robot must know it is a robot.

Navy report warns of robot uprising posted Feb 18th 2009

According to a report published by the California State Polytechnic University (with data made available by the U.S. Navy's Office of Naval Research) the sheer scope of the military's various AI projects is so vast that it is impossible for anyone to fully understand exactly what's going on.
And what we don't understand can eventually hunt us down and kill us. This isn't idle talk, either -- a software malfunction just last year caused US. Army robots to aim at friendly targets

Following a successful evaluation in 2005 Guardium was selected by the Israel Defense Forces to operate as part of the border security operations. By May 2008 the IDF received the first batch of Guardium UGVs scheduled to enter fully operational service along the countrie's borders by the year's end. In 2008 Israel's Airport Authority conducted an evaluation of the system as part of possible integration of an autonomous UGV as part of its airport security system.

A recent government report forecast that robots would routinely carry out surgery by 2018.
The Ministry of Information and Communication has also predicted that every South Korean household will have a robot by between 2015 and 2020.
Imagine if some people treat androids as if the machines were their wives," Park Hye-Young of the ministry's robot team told the AFP news agency.
"Others may get addicted to interacting with them just as many internet users get hooked to the cyberworld."
A draft of the proposals said: "In the 21st Century humanity will coexist with the first alien intelligence we have ever come into contact with - robots.
"It will be an event rich in ethical, social and economic problems."

 FIRST  MURDER BY ROBOT:-
(PhysOrg.com) -- "In 1981, a 37-year-old factory worker named Kenji Urada entered a restricted safety zone at a Kawasaki manufacturing plant to perform some maintenance on a robot. In his haste, he failed to completely turn it off. The robot’s powerful hydraulic arm pushed the engineer into some adjacent machinery, thus making Urada the first recorded victim to die at the hands of a robot."
But as robots are beginning to spread from industrial environments to the real world, human safety in the presence of robots has become an important social and technological issue.
“Next Generation Robots” will have relative autonomy, working in ambiguous human-centered environments, such as nursing homes and offices. Before hordes of these robots hit the ground running, regulators are trying to figure out how to address the safety and legal issues that are expected to occur when an entity that is definitely not human but more than machine begins to infiltrate our everyday lives.
One guiding principle of the proposed framework is categorizing robots as “third existence” entities, since Next Generation Robots are considered to be neither living/biological (first existence) or non-living/non-biological (second existence). A third existence entity will resemble living things in appearance and behavior, but will not be self-aware. While robots are currently legally classified as second existence (human property), the authors believe that a third existence classification would simplify dealing with accidents in terms of responsibility distribution.
