Rise of the Machines: One of These Advanced Robots May Soon Take Over the World

• Interesting Engineering

Remember, in 2017, when Elon Musk said that in a few years, robots would move so fast that you will need a strobe light to see them? Good. So do we. The modern age of robotics embodies some of the highest levels of engineering and human ingenuity. However, when people talk about these machines, they can be very opinionated. There sometimes seems to be no middle ground when people discuss robotics. Some people either think robots are amazing, or are worried they will take your job, or fear they will eventually over the world. 

Though the last two points are valid concerns, robots have also done a lot of good in a wide range of industries and at home. In fact, intelligent machines might have a lot to offer their human creators, they are already improving people's lives. Robots are becoming a big part of the medical field, agriculture, homecare, space exploration art, and have even helped us during this pandemic. For example, a hospital in Wuhan, China, used humanoid robots donated by the Silicon Valley Company CloudMinds Technology to disinfect, measure temperatures, deliver food and medicine, and entertain medical staff and patients.
