Autonomous Robots

ARE AUTONOMOUS ROBOTS DANGEROUS?
Autonomous robots refer to the mechanical devices that are capable of performing the desired task without much human guidance. Different robots have different degree of autonomy depending upon the purpose for which they are used. For example robots used in fields like space exploration, cleaning floors, waste water treatment are desired to be highly automated. But this also raises a concern, are autonomous robots dangerous? Robots act as a valuable resource but they are also capable of causing damage to equipment and workers. So it is important for the organizations using automated robots to take safety measures in order to save money and lives.

The increasing use of automated robots in war poses a threat to humanity. Most automated robots deployed on battle fields today can identify and attack the targets without human help. Such robots by falling into wrong hands can become a great threat to human lives. Also questions like what will happen if the robot?s software?s suddenly fails or if robot becomes violent in the battle field are still unanswered. The worst part is that the current automated robots don't have a control error of the effective measures. And so if someday a design error occurs, it would be enough to pay all of humanity lives.

Similarly surgical robots can be dangerous also. The robotic surgery started with Neurosurgery. Now it has found place in areas like: urology and cardiology. The problem lies in the small ability of robots to interfere and evaluate in emergency situations. Also the surgery with robots intervention can last longer than classical surgery causing patient more discomfort and risk.

The robots also pose moral and ethical dangers. Automated robots have replaced human workers in industries causing rise in unemployment. This also leaves society with an over abundance of jobless people with outdated skills. Such ethical danger cans cause social and moral unrest. Also designing and developing an automated robot needs lot of money and power.

To summarize as every coin as two sides similarly used automated robots have both pros and cons. Due to their unbiased logic and reasoning one day can robots be placed in positions of power? And what if they start thinking on their own? These questions still need an answer and only then can autonomous robots gain the popularity that they deserve.
