People will still be needed on factory floors, even as robots become more common. Future operators will have technical support and be super-strong, super-smart and constantly connected.
Brain-computer interfacing is a hot topic in the tech world, with Elon Musk's announcement of his new Neuralink startup. Here, researchers separate what's science from what's currently still fiction.
Today, the U.S. is leading the robotics revolution. But without timely investment, China will overtake us, and could permanently put Americans out of work.
Humans need greater autonomy than Isaac Asimov's neat science fiction idea permits.
Today's robots and artificial intelligence look very different from the androids conceived by Isaac Asimov.
How can you prepare for the coming AI revolution? Here's a handy survival guide.
We have long believed ourselves to be the only intelligent beings on Earth – that may soon change and the consequences will be dramatic for law, politics and society in general.
