Android picks up human dummy
I've always been facinated with Technology since I could remember.
Science & Technology has gone from a 'jogging stance' to downright sprinting!
In other words: Look at the sophistication of machinery and just how far it advances, not in terms of decades, but in mere months (perhaps weeks)?
In our attempts to create machines (likened to be more 'human-type') we narrow the gap between humans and a 'mere bucket of bolts'.
When it comes down to the Medical field:
We have A.I.'s (Artificial Intelligence); and these A.I.'s are learning on their own (with the help of human programing) and may
assist along side a surgeon in the operating room.
As seen in the source material provided, Androids are in an infant stage of development.
The need for split-second-decision cababilities have to be highly honed in order to be able to, not only pick up a human in a hospital bed, but also
account for any descrepencies in human movement.
Should a patient suddenly jerk about (spasm/fear/etc.) the android must quickly react to these situations so as to not let the patient fall or be
harmed in any way.
All in all, I see great potential for these machines in many respects.
No more need for strong muscular Orderlies who have to strain their muscles to lift patients to and from beds and gournies.
Would the idea of employing a viable intelligent Android hurt or hinder our Industries?
