the future?


Did you happen to see the PBS programme on robots? well if you did not here is a thought for you to ponder: we, as in engineers and scientists, have already developed prototype androids! There are basically two types of these, one is a “functionality android” and the other is an “interactive android”. the former is somewhat human in appearance and is essentially a “service” one and the other is one which is very human in appearance and language with advanced AI and is closer to Lt Commander Data of Star Trek fame designed to interact in much the same way as Data! What wondrous and potentially dangerous technology! Do we have the wisdom to use it wisely? I am betting Not!
