Almost anyone loves change, of course positive change. Whether it’s small or big, feeling progress is inexplicably satisfying and rewarding. In the case of new purchases that make our lives easier and more convenient, we tend to feel a sense of progress and pride in our selves eventhough we didn’t create these things, but we kind of reward our selves for the “right” choice we’ve made. Smartphones, tablets, smart watches all testify for that. Technological advancement has touched almost every part of our lives and there are some items which are becoming indispensable.
What About Robots ?
Many journalists are wondering whether robots will take over our lives. Many people feel a bit scared when imagining a human creation made of solid steel having human like capabilities taking over their lives. I’m sure that others accept, let’s say by necessity, to let these technological “devices” control some parts of their lives especially when it comes to getting rid of their household chores. This is by the way the opinion of Michael Björn the Head of Research at Ericsson ConsumerLab.
We Are (Almost) Already Living It
While many people don’t feel the slow shift we are experiencing in our lives, others are aware. Smart home automation systems are somehow the brain of the house. Who’s brain is this? Doesn’t this sound like a scary question? For people fearing a presumed robot conspiracy, it is. But when we take a look at people living in an automated house, it’s really not as alarming as we’ve just imagined. Nevertheless, household technology have also it’s cons and “horrifying” situations when you count on your smart home system to lock the doors at night but fails to do it. Smartphones having Siri installed in them are also transforming a smartphone to a personal, virtual assistant allowing users to get things done throughout the day easy and fast. The voice-control option make it sound more like a robot and because of its contextual awareness, he seems to know more than you know and respond to questions that even a human can’t think of.
If we observe our lives, we realize that the machines we use in our everyday lives are running it somehow. These machines are not smart and this doesn’t please to us. We have to read manuals with hundred of pages, repair them, and buy them lots of electricity. This is clearly an unstated call for smart(er) machines/devices. But of course there should be limits to this Artificial Intelligence machines in order not to get out of control or execute more than we want them to (manual and automatic driving modes are a great example ). This will result in freeing a great deal of time, saving energy and lessening worries.
According to Ericsson.com, by 2020 a range of domestic robots helping with everyday chores such as cooking and laundry will not be a surprise for at least 64% of consumers. In addition to functional tasks, robots would also keep company to people especially the elders.
