From the looks of recent times with the tremendous amount of interest shown on robots by developers, investors and individuals, robots are unarguably the future, a future which might be detrimental to humans if we continue with our unrelenting quest for achieving absolute artificial intelligence.
The majority of people will disagree with my opinion on the possible dangers artificial intelligence poses to us in the nearest future, and it's because we think we have and will always have total control over them, after all we created them they will say.
The whole idea about artificial intelligence is to create something far more intelligent and complex than that of the human mind. This only shows that robots will be smarter, more intelligent and stronger than man. Remember that history has shown us that every intelligent species has a way of always taking control and assuming authority over lesser intelligent species. Wouldn't this be the case? , Also, like every other man's invention, robots will be prone to defaults. They might malfunction and are also vulnerable to hacks. Imagine what can happen when such is the case. Am not against advancement but I think we've already gone too far with inventing humanoids. Take the sex dolls for instance, it has reduced man's morality and dignity to an all time low.
Basic robotics with basic functions like the common ones found everywhere today on the other hand are perfect and will continue be of great help to man in the future.
