What’s a robot capable of?
What is a human?
How do we use robots to solve problems?
These are questions that are being asked in robotics, the field that has been making big strides since the early 1990s.
The field has seen a significant boom in recent years.
But there are plenty of hurdles to overcome before robots can take on much of the human-like tasks humans traditionally perform.
As the field continues to expand, we ask: How do robots and humans interact?
Is it possible to have a human-bot relationship?
How can robots help humans find jobs?
These and other questions, in this episode of National Geographic News, explore how the field is evolving, and how it could benefit society.
