Robots have been useful to humans since the past. They’re made to make human life easier. Since early times people have been dreaming of making robots and different people have made different kinds of robots. Robots has been useful in the past, they’re now useful in present-time, and they’re going
I. Introduction The concept of “robots” has been with humans for a long time. From the “robot-knight” plan of Leonardo da Vinci to the automatons of Jacques de Vaucanson, to the robots created by several robotics companies, people have demonstrated a fascination. The word robot came from the Czech word, “robota” which means “forced labor”. In 1921, writer Karel Capek used it in his play entitled Rossum’s Universal Robots (R.U.R.). The credit for coming up with such term, however, goes to Josef Capek, his brother. Presently, robot means a machine that performs complex actions, similar to humans or other animals; also a machine that can perform repetitive tasks, guided by automatic controls. (Shulman & Buckley, 2014).
Medical technology has evolved, starting from the nineteenth century to further development of the medical technologies such as the diagnostic technology now being able to find the diagnosis of the patient by automatically recording the data of the illness. Doctors and other health professions are now able to prevent illnesses from getting worse; the evolvement of medical technology has further allowed us to help diminish certain health illness(es). For example, the therapeutic robots have been developed to help treat illnesses such as dementia but further studies have proven that therapeutic robots can do so much more. Therapeutic robots are robots used for companionship and therapy; it is a robotic pet such as an otter, cat, seal, and/or dog that operates like a real pet to help someone’s health issue. Yet, therapeutic robots are seen as controversial since many people view therapeutic robots as a way of raising ethical concerns since they believe that therapeutic robots can eventually replace humans. Although therapeutic robots such as PARO are viewed as harmful, they are beneficial to the society because it can help diminish dementia, has a psychological effect on patients, improves the socialization, and treats depression and alzheimer's.
Why is the world becoming less utopian? According to Gregory Claeys’ Dystopia: Natural History, it becomes clear that, in the emergence of a dystopia in the modern world, “an age also characterized by growing individualism,” utopia’s characteristics turn out to be “more repressive and puritanical” and “as part of the
Grandma Alice was born on March 1, 1919 in Winnsboro, South Carolina. She was the oldest of five children. After she completed the 6th grade, she went to work, picking cotton. It was hot in the fields. She picked prickly, cotton at the tender age of eleven up until she turned sixteen, the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 excluded agriculture. At sixteen, she became a nannie for a wealthy, white family. Grandma would go on to raise her five children. She made sure that they would enlist in the armed services and/or went to college. She was determined that education was the key to her children’s freedom and independence. Grandma Alice did not experience a lot of freedom and she was denied a good education. I can still hear her say, “…go to
The global dispute that centers on technology, ranging from basic machines to the internet of things, is a very broad one. To each person the use of electronics means something different, some despise the rate in which the world is turning to robots and some praise the idea of
In this time robots are being worked on to take the job of the older people that can't do the jobs that robot can do and they think that the robots can do more than what us humans can actually. They are almost at the point to wear they can make robots act and look like real humans. WIthin the next few years the robots may walk around and be just like us humans. The robots. parts consist of. I limbs and artificial organs and prosthetics like legs and arms.
Organization & Development Do you know anyone that goes above and beyond what they are called to do? I certainly do, my grandma gee. She always finds a way to make people smile and laugh.

medication dispersing, chair and bed adjustments, obtaining food and drinks for patients. Facilities will ultimately use robots for assistance with monitoring patients on life support, resuscitation, rehabilitation, medication suspension, adjusting beds for the patients. Advanced programming will allow them to be able to retract blood from the patient for testing.
ROBOTICS IMPACT ON HEALTHCARE Robotics can be virtual and/or mechanical objects that we use in everyday activities. Even though robots have been around since 1960’s. In the healthcare field we have become more dependent upon them since the 1980 's. Robots have been used to assist people in

The company expects the same independence and productivity for bed-bound veterans. In the future, the company plans to add even more advanced features, including voice control. The company also plans to address the needs of users with upper limb mobility issues. It also plans to expand its focus to include not just its veterans audience but also long-term care facilities. The company’s chief technology officer Jeffrey Ackerman said that there is a huge demand for this kind of technology in the market.
Dan Mitchell, in his article “Household Robots Are Here, but Where Are They Going?” makes the claim that household robots now are just the first step in what is to become of them in the future. Social robots, this is what the two products mentioned are categorized as, currently do everything that a smartphone or tablet does with the exception that they are not mobile. As of now, they are not needed to be and because of this, current social robots perform basic tasks, such as answering questions and playing music. According to some roboticists, there's no certain estimate to when social robots can and will be able to perform human tasks. The inventor of a social robot claims that the path that's taken with the robots is up to the public to decide
