Robots

 

Fast forward a couple of decades and going to the shops or the bank will be much more fun than now. Sophia or Ameca robots will ask you what you want. Right at the door. Say something like, I've come to find love. See what kind of support Sophia can deliver.

 

Robots will no doubt be empowered to call security or the cops. That's definitely going to be within their skill set. But the jury is out on whether they will be able to have ambition, or want revenge when they are double crossed. So Elon Musk will have to work on giving his robots these vital aspects of his own personality.

 

Robots will be able to teach your children, and mark their homework. But the question remains, whether children who fail will feel any remorse if they are reprimanded by angry robot teachers. Or feel proud if a robot tells them they're wonderful, and have a bright future.

 

If robots are going to enforce the law, like Robocop, then they are going to have to be trained to distinguish between sinners and saints. I must say, some of the time I have difficulty telling the difference. Apparently there's a slight change in tone when someone tells a lie, and so perhaps robots will be programmed to respond to liars. Can you imagine a robot saying to you, now please tell the truth so that I don't have to call security?

 

If robots are going to tell you what art is a good investment, then will they be able to tell you when's the best time to put your acquisition on auction? I predict that artists themselves will have a smashing time, wrecking robots with all manner of weapons.

 

Art will always outsmart robots, because it's about the journey we take as questioning humans. And robots are never going to be programmed effectively, to be afraid of the darkness.
