11 minute lesson
Many people have heard of the “robot revolution” but what exactly is it?
There is a lot of debate about whether or not robots are taking human jobs and tasks. This video can help us get to the bottom of this debate, as well as give us some history on robotics and robot development. This video will also explain why we shouldn’t be afraid of that robot revolution!
Robots are a huge part of our everyday lives, and they are becoming more and more popular for household uses. It is important for us to understand both the possibilities and limitations of robots so that we can use technology to its highest potential in the future.
We know a lot about artificial intelligence and robotic technologies, but there is still much to learn and many problems to solve before we can get robots to actually act like humans.
SciShow explores the unexpected. Seven days a week, Hank Green, Michael Aranda, and Olivia Gordon delve into the scientific subjects that defy our expectations and make us even more curious!
