High schoolers are pretty sure robots won't kill us
Through the recent DARPA Robotics Challenge, people from around the country got to compete and display new advances in the field of domestic and industrial robots. Much progress has been made, according to visitors.
But perhaps the most telling marker for how robots will become integrated into our daily lives are the reactions from the younger generations.
Robots4Us, a contest specifically for high school students, tried to answer this question. Five teens got to go to Pomona, California for the DARPA event, and most revealed that the future will be a collaborative space for robots and humans alike.
Most hope that robots will help people in the most basic and necessary of ways, and are confident that we are moving in that direction.
