Transcript of Humanoid Robot¬_¬!

Educational Robotics-related field
eg. computer science, engineering, and mathematics. Social Argument: Convenience. Technology develops quickly makes smarter robot
Smart humanoid robots can work like human being and become their assistance Economic Humanoid robots: Convenience? Disaster? Using existing literature and data to evaluate this question in relation to 3 of this following areas:
2) Economic
3) Educational References: Robots for Secondary Education Human appearance Interacting with human Cognitive skills Teachers:
- Assistance
- Demonstration Students:
- Interaction
- Experiment
- Creativity
- Developing collaborative and problem solving abilities
- Edutainment I have a camera, microphone, speaker and a “sensor”, all hooked up to a touch sensitive screen (for information requests and confirmations), and also a business card scanner. I can take a picture of you and send it directly to any person you want or I can even act as a videoconferecing tool that allows you to speak to your visitor even before seeing him/her. UK schools get humanoid robots to make tech education more appealing to children
- Digital Arts, November 27, 2012 Three Factors that Robots Successfully Support Education:
1. Unique learning experience
- provide a wide design space for students to explore
2. Cost
- cost of computation has dropped
3. Plug-and-play feel
- experience immediately
(Chih-Wei, Chang, et.al, 2010) Counter Argument: Disaster. Refutation: Argument: Interaction-oriented robots acts as partners in human's life in the future with the provide of communication supports. Counter-argument: Robots do not have emotional feelings like what we human beings have. Hidden Costs Most of the robots now cannot develop any emotions
->trained to learn various human gestures, however only the action of
anger is learnt, no emotion involve.
Emotion is an inner state which robots have none.
(Brown, 2010) Four jobs a robot could never steal Refutation: In the coming future, emotions inside robots become possible. - Education + Entertainment.
- lessons using online and offline simulations, games, comics creators, templates, self-knowledge tests, puzzles, etc. Human body
Two legs
Two arms
Head connected to trunk
Facial expression Learning
Practicing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfuwSdoBgnk&t=0m38s 2005 06 14 Aichi Expo 2005 06 - Reception Robot: Actroid ACTROID understands naturally spoken words of the visitors in four languages (Japanese, Chinese,
Korean and English). Moreover, ACTROID can carry on conversations with the visitors on various
subjects including site information in the relevant language in a synthetic but true-to-life voice.
ACTROID has a realistic appearance in perfect analogy to humans. ACTROID is capable of
controlling its motions harmonized with a context of conversation expressively just like a human-being
(facial expressions, lip motions and behaviors) . - Maintenance Fee
- highly skilled and technical engineers
- Repairing Fee
- robot parts replacement Are humans becoming obsolete in the workforce? All signs point to "yes."
As IBM's Watson proved on Jeopardy, robots are becoming smarter than people. They also make fewer mistakes and they don't get bored.
By 2013 there will be 1.2 million industrial robots working worldwide — that's one robot for every 5,000 people, according to Marshall Brain, founder of How Stuff Works and author of Robotic Nation.
Robots are currently analyzing documents, filling prescriptions, and handling other tasks that were once exclusively done by humans. Nine jobs that humans may lose to robots 1.TV chef Robots don't eat. While it might be conceivable that they could one day, they would never actually have to. So the idea of the CPR-23000 making like Michel Roux Jr and waggling its titanium eyebrows at a perfectly poached egg will never truly appeal. Unless the viewers themselves are robots, of course. 2.Bankers You know it, I know it, bankers are paid as much as they are because they do a job so intricate and difficult that most humans would be reduced to a transparent jelly after trying it for just half an hour. The same applies to robots – try going long on the Swedish kroner and see how long you last, tinribs. 3.Ticket inspector Now, on first glance, you might think a ticket inspector should be nervous about the upcoming robot revolution. A robot could scan a ticket and verify it, you might say. But I'd reply that you were misunderstanding the role of a ticket inspector; inspiring humiliation at a moment's notice. Wrong ticket for this train, nothing I can do about it, have to get off at next stop. Your Oyster card is 40p short, you're lucky I'm not sending you to prison. Uttered by a robot, these phrases would not nearly be as embarrassing to hear. Only a human can induce shame; cling on to that. 4.Record shop employee Kinda the same thing as ticket inspector really. But thanks to the added fact of them being squeezed by the internet, the remaining record shop employees are now so niche and specialised that they're essentially the high priests of humiliation. Earning the opportunity to be laughed at for not knowing the name of the Bulgarian trance DJ who's remixed the latest Mumford and Sons is now something akin to a pilgrimage. Or a visit to a S&M dungeon. Their value will only rise. Initial Costs - approximately £10430.28 for one robot

Our group argues that the development of humanoid robots bring more convenience than disaster to the world in general. Our group will evaluate this question in social, economic and educational aspect. Thesis Takes part in helping stroke patients by delivering therapist (arm movement tasks)
->support client at home with more
care and better treatment
->better allocation of resources of the
(IANS, 2013.) Companies have provided special support for educational use.

eg. Aldebaran robotics:
Financial Support:
Aldebaran Robotics helps teachers and schools get what they need for their ambitious and innovative projects.
Two days of training and workshops with engineers from Aldebaran Robotics.

Reduce the financial burden of institutions and minimise the possibility of damages caused.

is essential in both human and robots. (Robot and Frank, 2012) <Robot shows Emotion> http://youtu.be/wjW-v0IPT_M?t=2m9s 1) Act as human partners
