The Economist: Rise of the Robots

April 03, 2014

Last week, The Economist, prestigious business magazine, includes a 14-page special report about robotic technology. The reporter, Oliver Morton ends his report with the tagline: "They are coming to work and play among us in ever greater numbers." It is a very interesting and recommendable report in which you can see what is happening in the robotic world. The report is organized as follows:
  • Immigrants from the future – robots offer a unique insight into what people want from technology. That makes their progress peculiarly fascinating
  • The build-up – after slow beginnings, a big push in robotics now seems imminent
  • Military uses – drones will change war – and more
  • Business service robots – the best robot technology is unseen
  • Labor markets – job destruction by robots could outweight creation
  • Domestic service robots – a robot around the house doesn’t just have to be handy; it has to be likeable too
  • Regulation – robots are as good, or as bad, as the people who make them
You can see the full report in the printed edition. More info in this link.
La pasada semana, The Economist, una prestigiosa revista de negocios, incluía un informe especial de 14 páginas sobre las tecnologías robóticas. El reportero, Oliver Morton finalizaba este informe con esta frase: "Los robots están llegando para jugar y trabajar con nosotros, y cada vez lo hacen en mayor número". Es un informe muy interesante y recomendable en el que puedes ver que está ocurriendo en el mundo de la robótica. Está organizado como sigue:
  • Inmigrantes del futuro - robots dan una visión única de lo que la gente quiere y espera de la tecnología. Esto hace que su progreso sea peculiarmente fascinante.
  • Crecimiento - tras un lento comienzo, su explosión ahora parece inminente.
  • Usos militares - los drones cambiarán la guerra entre otras cosas
  • Los robots para servicios de negocio -  lo mejor está aún por llegar
  • Los robots para el mercado laboral - la destrucción de puestos de trabajo puede superar a la creación
  • Robots domésticos - un robot en la casa no solo tiene que ser útil, tiene que ser simpático
  • Regulación - los robots son tan buenos -o malos- como la gente que los programa quiere que sean
