In future, the number of robots will doubtlessly grow exponentially, and their efficiency will increase. This will have a profound effect on the interrelation between robots and people. The typical reaction of people to such development includes both fascination and apprehension. But these emotions stem from convictions instead of knowledge. Many concerns and doubts are being raised. Are robots among us already? Will our future be shaped in the company of robots? What challenges and opportunities do we confront in scenarios in which robots increasingly take charge? The talk will provide answers to these questions and address other issues of our ‘robotic’ future.
