    Robotic Surgery Imagine a robot operating on you, and there is no other surgeon in the room. There might possibly be a monitor that stands in the room to make sure that the procedure goes smoothly, but that is it. Actually, the surgeon controlling the robot, possibly a da Vinci Si or Xi, is across the room, across the country, or even maybe on the other side of the world. This is the future of surgery. Today, there have been over eight hundred thousand robotic surgeries by approximately four thousand

    how the field of robotics is still a working-progress, Philip K. Dick’s Second Variety introduces the idea of superior, conscious machines who were created by advanced technology, and Kenneth Chang’s “Can Robots Become Conscious?” shares different views on the advancement of machines and robots. I believe machines and robots are not glorified adding-up machines and I think it is possible that they will become capable of original thought the more we advance in the field of robotics.

    1.0 Introduction A robot can be defined as an embodied “reprogrammable multifunctional manipulator” containing “sensors, effectors, memory, and some real-time computational apparatus” (Sheridan, 1992, pp. 3-4). Initially, robots were designed to perform tasks that are menial, repetitive, or dangerous for human beings. For instance, robots in factories assemble the same parts on a car repetitively for long periods of time and robots used by military to defuse bombs or monitor dangerous territory.

    Technology is becoming extremely, in a way, invasive in our everyday lives and many movies have made sci-fi fantasies about technology/robots taking over, such as Terminator or Wall-E. Although, is that really the road we are heading down with the advances in technology and how much we use it? In a sense, maybe. In the article “Robot Invasion” by Charlie Gillis, he discusses the controversial argument about how robots are becoming complex enough to take over certain employment positions that are
