Why Robots Are Becoming More Human-Like
Robots these days have become smarter than ever before. Along with an increased IQ (intelligent quotient), they are programmed to demonstrate an EQ (emotional quotient) which makes them express emotions, just like we do. Does that mean the plastic body robot, powered by a battery is going to take over the human race? Well, relax, that is really not the intention. In fact, the robot is built with great precision to help humans and assist them to take on tasks that are dull, difficult, and dangerous for us. Though there’s a long way to go before a robot can completely replace human intervention, AI has definitely put some soul into the machine.
So let us see what are the advantages of having a robot friend around across different environments:
Robots in Households
Domestically programmed robots are experts at running mundane errands and reducing the burden of homeowners significantly. These fascinating assistants can mop the floor, clean your swimming pools, change the light bulb, fold the laundry, and even make coffee for you. They are capable of doing all this with a smile and never complain about getting tired! Not only this but they are also wired to provide emotional support to the elderly and even nurse them to good health. Babysitting is another job they are good at. Your kids are sure to be entertained by admiring the cartoon-like eyes of the robot and the funny facial gestures they make before singing your kid to sleep. So, essentially your friend can perform multiple jobs in the house with ease.
Robots in Offices
We have heard of robots working on heavy machinery and helping carry loads around the factory, which is otherwise a very difficult & dangerous task for the workforce to accomplish. While these industrial bots are excellent, even corporate headquarters and office set-ups have started employing humanoid robots to contribute here & there. These buddies can be deployed to get printouts from the printing machine or even manage accounts of cash coming in from customers. They have even taken over the security desk and keep a check on vendors who enter the workplace while having the add-on task of monitoring their body temperature. The best part is, that they don’t need breaks, would never ask for a leave, and speed up the process, thereby leaving employees more time to accomplish important goals, instead of wasting time on unnecessary tasks.
Robots in Educational Institutes
Robots have come to play a major role in fulfilling the learning and developmental needs of students. Modern-age education is focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum, which is adopted by most schools in Dubai and other regions of the Middle East. Through this, children develop skills such as computational thinking & problem solving, which is the need of the hour. Robots encourage students to learn technical stuff in an engaging & interesting manner. Group projects on coding and learning programming languages become easier, thanks to the creativity used by children to power robots and build apps, just like inventors do.
Miro-E is an excellent example of an educational robot used in most science labs across schools in developed nations like the UAE. This cute animal-like-looking friend acts as a companion for students to learn difficult topics of computer science, robotics, and other such lessons. This pre-assembled character is made of a number of sensors, motors, and software operated by brain-based control systems. It also demonstrates emotions such as; moving, thinking, speaking, observing, hearing, and feeling. Miro-E inspires us to keep learning and exploring further.
