Agility + decision making = ?

With the agility advancing every years and advanced vision technology, robot solders will not be too far away. SciFi will no longer look the same as we develop emotion to robots. I'm definitely looking forward to the day.

Yes, Maria, there are many tasks robots could perform that would be lifesaving. Not just during disasters, but to help the elderly live at home rather than have to be institutionalized.

Yes, chang0, I have a refrigertor magnet that shows a man with is dog staring at the sunset. The caption reads:

"The more people I meet, the more I like my dog."

Someday that joke might read:

"The more people I meet, the more I like my robot."

BTW I have three dogs and would never trade them for robots even considering their barking and occational "mistakes."

I expect that robots will be quite common in the future.  We already have many machines that help us around the home and office.  This is only the logic extension.

Yes, it has been coming so long we don't even notice. I remember 10 years ago robots were making mail deliveries around the office by folowing different colored lines on the floor.

Colin, your dog story reminds me of the human touch that machine will be desired to have in the future. Reminds me of the sci-fi movies of last few decades.

Re: Robots to look forward - my prediction

I predict that we will not see many robots in daily living in the future. They will be concentrated in the military, heavy manufracturing, and emergency rescue applications. Instead I expect that the Internet will become even more ubiquitious (as if it isn't already wiith SmartPhones). smart devices (like autonomous cars) will require less human intervention, and we'll all be struggling when failed devices (intermittent problems can't get fixed) make it hard to do things that used to be simple.

DARPA Progress

I'm pleased that DARPA is making such good progress that the bar can be raised.  All too often, projects fail to meet their objectiive and the expectations must be lowered. Congratulations to DARPA and the hard working engineering teams.

Not sure about your "robots" prediction, DrQuine. The Japanese are already introducing humanoids to help the aged. Most advanced countries will follow suit because they will face the same problems soon.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
