Feb 2012 - Man vs. Machine - Could Robots Take Over Our Lives?

In our pockets we all carry the supercomputers of the 1980s, mobiles can surf the net, plan your day, let you talk to loved ones and they soon might even drive your car. Technology is becoming autonomous and independent of us humans. They have invaded further than we think. Robots assist surgery, they can vacuum our home, transport materials and even explore the Red Planet Mars. The line separating sci-fi from reality is blurring.

Prof. Ing Simon Fabri addressed these questions by talking about robots, their history, impact on society, what they already can do and might do. He also attempted to answer if machine intelligence can really surpass ours, shining a light through all the hype.
