I think robots will become much more advanced in the future. They will be able to perform more and more jobs that they couldn't perform before. I think robots will help us, not harm us. The problem with robots becoming more and more advanced is that there will be less jobs for us. The only way to be able to incorporate more robots into the work force is by educating more people. This will allow them to take higher jobs like overseeing the robots, or coming up with new ideas. By doing this, I believe that we will be able to discover new things as there are more people available to think and innovate. However, the only way for this to occur is by educating more people. Therefore, I believe that robots will help humans, but only if we are able to educate more people and give them better jobs as robots begin to take the lower paying jobs from humans.
TED TALK gEORGE DYSON
I found this TED Talk intersting. I was suprised at some of the things that the engineers wrote in their journals. They wrote whatever crossed their mind and everything that occurred. The journals were very specific, but were also a way for the engineers to release their frustration and voice their feelings. Barrcelli's universe was complicated, but it was amazing how he thought of it without advanced equipment. The engineers were also very persistent as they kept trying even though things were going as well as they planned.
