First Impression: This article is talking about how the future is.


Quote:“If not yet the world, robots are starting to dominate the news headlines”



Over the past few years, robots are becoming more reliable to the point that they are the ones who make our lives easier and better. Creating a robot is no joke like there are a lot of algorithms, patterns, and logic to be studied to create one. When you think about it, robots can be actual humans similar to the movies that we watched. Arnim Zola from the marvel movie “Captain America” is one heck of a robot-like he put his brain inside a computer and live for ages just for his group called Hydra to gain back the power they had using the S.H.I.E.L.D. The Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, and Law-Enforcement Division or also known as S.H.I.E.L.D, is a group in marvel where they handle missions like saving the earth or any dangerous tasks. The idea of putting the brain inside a computer is unexpected because this might not even happen to us people, like how in the world you will be able to put your mind inside a computer. Things like this are unbelievable, like only aliens from different universe can do it. As we move on to the next generation of robots, I will surely remember how robots were made today, and in the future. There will be so much changes that even us humans will not be able to comprehend.


5 Things I Learned

  1. Robots are performing well throughout the years of production.

  2. Robot ethics has two fields, one that is societal and other is ethical.

  3. The two fields are also called Machine Ethics.

  4. Robots are getting harder to program, as we upgrade it.

  5. Humans will have a difficult time living with robots.

5 Integrative Questions

  1. Why can’t we improve people’s lives rather than improving how a robot operates?

  2. Can robots also be considered as pets?

  3. How will a world full of robots benefit human kind?

  4. What will cause robots to take over the world?

  5. Will robots have the same level of morality as humans?
