The future of robotics

 

“A committee of experts to discuss an international robot competition that the Japanese government wants to hold in 2020 met for the first time on Feb. 2, and suggested that the competition cover three categories: product-making, services, and public interest projects. 

“Product-making” would cover fields like factory work and agriculture. “Services” events would include areas like customer service and providing care for the infirm. “Public interest” would cover fields like checks on public infrastructure and disaster rescue operations.”  (The Mainichi Shimbun)

Great but to which extend should humans push for robot development?

“Japan will use the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to showcase its robotics technology and give visitors a sense of a futuristic society where humans are waited on hand and foot by robots.

A committee of the science and technology ministry that was formed Sept. 15 proposed setting up a robotic village in time for the Games as part of an initiative toward a “universal future society” where robots and information technologies that assist humans regardless of age, nationality or disabilities are commonplace.” (The Asahi Shimbun)

Will this cutting-edge Innovation be to the Tokyo Olympics 2020 what the “Tokaido Shinkansen” (Bullet Train) was to the first Tokyo Olympics in 1964? What can we expect to see? What do you think?
