Scheduled 18th July
Robotics is a young branch of science: first industrial robots were introduced in the 1960s. Since then, they became commonplace in most factories, where they’re making the most mundane jobs at the assembly line. Is it the only place they’re used in? In the recent years increasing numbers of life aspects are becoming more dependent on machines. There are engineer robots used to disable explosives, surgeon robots, used for painstaking surgeries, especially in cardiology and neurology. And it all took it’s source from the futuristic writings of a Czech author Karel Čapek, who wrote the play „R.U.R.” in 1920. It showed a future, where mass production of humanoid automatons, used to make humans’ life easier, became possible. Will eventually the vision of Čapek come to life and robots will substitute humans in everyday tasks?
