UK adults becoming happier about robots

As UK Robotics Week begins, a brand-new study has found that almost a quarter of respondents believed that there is potential for more robots to be consisted of in everyday society.But robot-friendliness is taking some time to grow. Just 20%of adults polled in the survey said thought we’re already co-existing in harmony with robotics in the UK.The study likewise revealed some fascinating understandings about the limits

of what robotics ought to and need to not be allowed to do. Almost a quarter of the sample recommended that there must be some ethical laws

around the work robots can do, and 13 %concur there must be a ceiling on the number of hours robotics can work per day.The research, commissioned by the EPSRC UK Robotics and Autonomous Systems (UK-RAS)

Network, is being launched ahead of UK Robotics Week, which returns from 21st– 29th June 2018. The study, which combines robotics with other kinds of autonomous device, reports that 35%people surveyed would feel comfy with having robots around the house.Professor Guang-Zhong Yang Teacher Guang-Zhong Yang, Chair of the EPSRC UK-RAS Network, composes:”These study results demonstrate that the basic public is

plainly taken part in thinking rather deeply about advances in robotics technology, and what it suggests for society and the future of how

we live and work.”Now in its 3rd year, UK Robotics Week will see robotics-focused activities occurring up and down the country, covering lectures, conferences, hackathons, and open days. In what has actually ended up being the centrepiece

of UK Robotics Week, the International Robotics Display in Liverpool on Thursday(21st June) will feature special talks by world-renowned specialists in science and technology

, plus lively panel discussions and dispute covering the ethical, legal and economic impact of robotics and expert system (AI).
