Today we’re going to talk about robots! Robots are often thought as a technology of the future, but they’re already here by the millions in the workplace, our homes, and pretty soon on the roads. We’ll discuss the origins of robotics to its proliferation, and even look at some common control designs that were implemented to make them more useful in the workplace. Robots are often thought of as a menace or danger to society, and although there definitely is the propensity for malicious uses, robots also have the potential to drastically improve the world.

Girl, your voice is good but your body is not appealing good for brain (from psychology perspective, work on yourself <gym>..it will be beneficial for your channel)

Wait, when did Dr. Eggman become a communist? I missed that part. :/

Sebastian Luna Alonso says:

When you started talking about biped robots failing to walk, I was expecting some minutes dedicated to Force Control. Nonetheless, it was an amazing episode!

cesar brown says:

You will never take man off the battlefield. Who do you think robots will target. When we get their their will be robots on both sides. May the best A.I win

typograf62 says:

The first mentioning of an automaton or robot thet I know of is in the Iliad. Not quite the place one would expect to find a robot. Hephaistos had some automatons working as servants.

OldRed91 says:

I learned more in this video than I did in a semester-long controls course in engineering school!

Олег Козлов says:

So…robots work on negative loops?

For some reason I saw two androids shittalking to each other.

Me and I says:

Barf! No, not me, I mean the mog. You know, the half-man, half-dog, from Spaceballs! He's his own best friend. Played by the late John Candy.

LegoDork says:

Once wars are being fought by robots it will still be down to, who can kill the most opposing humans*, and/or who runs the opposition out of resources first. SSDD.

*Most being, however many whichever side is willing to give up, before saying "uncle".

Baltasar Jimenez says:

I feel like the categorization of A[z]imov's laws of robotics is a bit glib. If you read his robot-centric stories, they are usually all about mishaps and problems with the interpretation of the laws, which are seen by more naive characters as perfectly valid and complete rulesets.

If anything, the laws read more to me like the parody product of a strawman overambitious engineer or philosopher that takes themselves too seriously.

Filip Paszkiewicz says:

Very strange episode. A bit of history with some hiccups (e.g. The Czech word 'Robot'); You mention Autonomous Cars, but no UAVs or AUVs; the terminator is mentioned and how we are trying to make androids, but nothing about how robots are used in healthcare, warehouses or factories (their main use up to date). To top it all of sudden basics of Control theory and PID controllers. Very strange episode.

Long Zhongqu says:

I love your video soooo much. Could you make a video about database as well?

Mohammad Alshawabkeh says:

The PID explanation is so lovely!

DontMockMySmock says:

"Azimov"? Asimov. And he didn't invent the three laws as some kind of solution for the problem of robotic ethics – they were a really rough starting point, and the stories he wrote based on them were almost all about how those laws went wrong and were not adequate on their own.

Alf Onso says:

I am not a robot.

Nemo White says:

take that creeper off ur shelf right now and burn it. thx 😉

Games Gamer says:

I loved the Daft Punk reference ;D

Elfos64 says:

I heard that the word robot meant "helper", and the guy who coined that term actually got the idea from the Jewish mythology of Golems.

Michael Harig says:

Kids want to 'play' games that travel (i.e. pokemon) why not make lots of inexpensive drones in many different types (subs, tanks, aircraft)?
The museums & other educational institutions of the world could create clues to build interest in school subjects. Ever imagine flying over the Eiffel tower, crossing the arctic, or exploring under water caves…? Instead of waiting to connect to an online game, or selecting tools, kids would be waiting to find an empty drone in that part of the world & connect to it. They can request the builders to fit different scanning & measurement devices, or they could build & ship theirs to a charging facility near by. Build tons of jobs all across the globe.

Skywalker says:

a puddle on tatooine? i think not! and artoo better get that coffee to old ben (even if he has to get in some rocket booster action to do so), he deserves it!

tuseroni says:

Lethal Autonomous Weapons…LAW

felix cuevas says:

Hey CC! idk if you guys will see this but I’ve watched a lot of you guy’s videos! I think it’s so great that there’s a actual decent YouTube channel for educational purposes and I’ve learned quite a bit! BUT I think what would make you guys channel 100x better would be to have quiz’s/tests for your videos so people can see how much smarter they are becoming and can tell if they are improving! Would love to get a response from you guys about this!

Алексей Unknown says:

Lol, "…feudal. nineteenth century Europe." – that's incredible how guys which are so smart in CS might be so ignorant in history
