Human-Robot Relations: 5 Reasons Why We Should Worry

Lifestyle

When everything in the past was done with bare hands, people are now reluctant to budge even a teensy bit from their comfort zone. All thanks, but no thanks to technology, more specifically, artificial intelligence and robotics.

Do you remember the days when you used to walk to get to the park, horse ride over the hills, or wash the car with your dad? Those days were a lot more fun. It was because these simple things were not considered chores rather were the seeds that created lasting memories. Nevertheless, what do we have to share for our generation today? Probably, smartphones to stay engaged, navigators to travel, and robots to fill the void, is that it?

Today robotics is slowly but steadily making its presence felt in every sphere from cleaning the floors to cuddling an artificial pet dog or artificial sex toys to having your own personal assistant. However, have you wondered if we are on the right track or not? Have you ever re-evaluated your decision to probably having a real dog or a maid to clean and probably even real toys such as one from cumswingwithme to entice your partner?

Hence, the question remains – Should we or should we not worry about how the human-robot relations are progressing? Here are two factors that are worth analyzing.

  1. No Emotional Quotient – Robots are soon replacing babysitters, home nurses, and caretakers. Convenient it may seem at first, but is it sufficient? It is a common belief, coming from the traditional minds that robots do not have the emotional connection to the person who it is serving. Thus, although care is being provided, it is but without a heart, almost as if the care receiver wished that they would have been sent to a daycare or abandoned in an old-age home.
  2. Being Followers Alone – Robots are also seen to replace teachers and those in the role of information providers. However, if you were on the receiving end, what would it be like merely receive orders and compelled to follow so with no provision to reciprocate or no room for suggestions? Are you thinking of the Hitler reign era? You are probably right.

Thus, it is time to rethink our actions and make the call regarding what extent we should depend on robots in the present and in the future.
