As the dog-like robot Spot produced by Boston Dynamics is spread over the Internet, the fear of robotic acrobatic capabilities can become a threat to humans. However, in an interview with the Lisbon Web Summit, Marc Raibert , the creator of Spot, claimed that Spot robots were not bad and that they would never turn into weapons.
Boston Dynamics, an American engineering and robotics firm founded in 1992, was acquired by Google in 2013. Then, in 2017, it was sold to the Japanese company Softbank. The company attracts attention with their humanoid robots and will introduce the first 1000 Spot models to its customers in the summer of 2020 .
Ib The people and institutions we have been shipping and working with have been developing construction applications . Nowadays, collecting data to measure the progress of the construction site is a popular target. We pick up some of the same sensors and put them in the robot so that the robots can travel and collect data. There is a real opportunity for robots to do this more routinely. Robots can do these things much better than people do ..
Raibert says that another area of work is related to gas and oil . Stating that these areas should be studied very carefully, Raibert says that they have done everything necessary in the field of public security. In case of a major environmental problem or in cases where the police cannot enter, the first intervention is intended by sending robots.
Raibert says robots can “see people as obstacles and avoid obstacles “, they don’t design robots to work close to people, and they don’t sell robots to people who want to take them home. Bile Even in offices, there is only limited use , Ra says Raibert . We want everything to be safe. Part of the robot fear is not science fiction , but science fiction films . I don’t think there’s such a possibility in today’s robots. Bulundu
Raibert says that Hollywood movies are taking extreme perception of robots to an extreme level, saying that robots aren’t bad, they don’t have emotions, ambitions and egos like people do. The spot will not be used to harm or intimidate any person, and no one will be able to arm these robots .
