I’ve said for a while now that Robots would eventually look after all my banking needs, and with the Semantic Web and Artificial Agents, we’re almost there. But then I see these developments coming out of Japan:
and I realise that the future is real robots.
I particularly like the way that Robina signs her name. I wonder if she can steal my identity too?
But these bots are not a joke. They are incredibly important to Japanese society to cope with their aging population. That’s why Toyota and Honda are investing billions to lead this market, as are other firms such as Microsoft who want to set the standards for these systems.
The future is not that far away after all.
Now where did I leave R2D2 and C3PO?
