Future Of Robotics: Robots With Emotions

“Yesterday I ‘scolded my robot’ and he couldn’t stop ‘crying’.”

“He is still mad at me..! 🙁 “

Looks Awkward?

There is nothing wrong with the statement, grammatically it’s correct. But still seems that there is some problem with the statement.

I know what you are thinking right now, robot can’t stop crying..? What is this, we have seen humans cry even some animals but never seen any machine cry. But don’t think that it is impossible to design a robot which will sense emotions or which will respond to emotions.

In this article I will tell you about the future of the robotics and upcoming “Emotional intelligence technology” which will make it possible to design a robot which can have emotions and who can even cry when somebody scolds him…,

And this is what which will make above statement logically correct in future.

Idea of Emotional Intelligence Technology

Some robotics gurus believes that emotions are result of hormonal secretion in human body, which means emotions are caused by a perfect mixture of proper chemicals. If we are capable of programming the robots according to some chemical reactions that day will be the start of the new revolution in the robotics industry.

According to the founder of “Redd robotics” Surendranath Reddy.

While speaking at the seminar titled “Robots, Internet of things and the future” Reddy throw the glimpse of the future robots, The robots which we have seen on the Si-fi movies and can only think about them. According to him engineers and scientists of today can impart emotions and self consciousness to the Robots.

He said “It may even possible to create robots which are capable of emotions since emotions are caused by a mixture of chemical”.

Scopes of “Emotional Intelligence” in robotics

In future it is most expected that emotion sensing will rule the whole robotics industry. Today this technology is in its infant stage but the day is not far when you will carry a robot for shopping or some hotel and he will demand you some stuffs.

He will express his feelings through physical postures, gestures and moment of body. And will help you to take fine decisions when you be stressed and feel down.

Future robots will interact with humans and will establish a relation with them. Using a neural network brain, they can remember the interactions with different peoples. Also there will be the excellent understanding of what is good and what is bad both logically and morally.

In future robot will understand your natural behavior and will act as the true companions, they will be better accepted as they will became more common in our lives. Different peoples will have different robots companions according to their personality.

Few Prototype Robots

This article will seems more likely to be the work of fiction but it’s not like that scientists have developed some of the brilliant prototypes

Some major milestones in this field are…

  1. Roxxxy the Robot : It is designed with artificial intelligence and have the ability to carry on a conversation.
  2. Einstein Robot: Designed by Hanson Robotics of Dallas, Texas, recognizes a number of human facial expressions and can respond accordingly.
  3. Nao:  It learn emotions in the same manner as young children, this is pretty much what human and chimpanzee babies learn about emotions.

Our Future with Emotional Intelligent Robots…

According to a British artificial intelligence researcher David Levy who nearly three years ago predicted that “robotics were about to begin making such dramatic advances that by the year 2050 humans will be marrying robots”

He said that “In future the robots would lose their industrial look and their jerky moments and would became the human like machine that people will consider them as friends, fall in love with them and even take them as spouses.”

Personally speaking, I believe that robots with emotions can one day become the true companions of peoples and will serve the humanity with much more Excellency. The chances of the disastrous future with robots as presented in some science fiction movies and books can only be secured if there is a possibility of gaining true relationships with robots.

  1. Yes, Myles
    This type of future is not too far though, we have just entered into such a world. the prototypes I had talked about in the article are too smart than we can think of..,
    thanks for reading..:)

    1. yes..!! well said naser..,
      but this fiction will be a reality soon, and there will be G-one and chitti kind of robots who will understand the human emotions and respond accordingly.. 😉
      thanks for stopping by 🙂

  2. Hey Rohit,
    Awesome post with great information and I really enjoyed this post while reading. I am totally agree with you that this future is very near to us when robots also respond to emotions and I really like the point of marriage with robots. Thanks for sharing this post.

  3. Thanks sudipto,
    my intention to write this article is to enlighten the mass about the advancement in the present technology..,
    most of the people are not aware of these things…

    seeing your comment here, make me somewhat successful in this regard..
    thanks for comment..:)

      1. Well said Prabhat..,
        the future you are talking about will be the ultimate truth, “Robots will be the new man made species in the Earth”
        thanks for stopping by.. 🙂

  4. Being a medical student myself, it intrigues me that human emotions could be transposed into computer assisted programs. It tickles my curiosity, though. I would definitely love to colaborate with robotics engineers in the future and make it happen. Doesn`t this scare you?

  5. very well said Simona..,
    this future can only be possible if all the branch of science will get together to form an another strongest human made species in this earth..
    thanks for taking time to comment here…. 🙂

  6. Rohit, it’s incredible what techonology is bringing us these days. Even more incredible are the things the future will bring us. These emotional robots are only the start!

  7. Well said luis,
    this is what we can see and imagine today.., it always intrigues me that what would be the level of imagination and what would be the technology of future..
    thanks for sharing your views in this regard.. 🙂

  8. The field of Robotics have evolved tremendously and it continues to evolve. I am really amazed to hear about the Idea of emotional Intelligence technology and I am just waiting for its development.

  9. thanks for such a nice information Rohit,
    it seems like human is now challenging the nature that he could build the superior race than god built us.,
    i think humas are leading him towards his end..:|
    nice article by the way.. 🙂

  10. hi anamika..,
    the facts you are mentioning are very much valid but we should hope for the good.., as I’ve said in last paragraph that we should attach ourselves with these robots emotionally then only we can have the good future with them.
    by the way nice thoughts..:)
