63. HELPER ROBOTS

MOST DICTIONARIES DEFINE ROBOTS AS A COMPUTERIZED APPLIANCE, BUT THE SCIENCE-FICTION NOVEL "DUNE" CALLS THEM THINKING MACHINES.

HOWEVER, A SERIOUS STREAM OF ROBOT CONSCIOUSNESS WILL BE NEEDED WHEN ITS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IS CONFRONTED BY THE FREQUENT INEXACTNESS OF HUMAN HOMONYMS OR ACCENTED SPEECH OR SIMPLY TALKING TOO FAST.

IN THE CASE OF AGING OR DISABILITY, BEING ABLE TO ENHANCE YOURSELF USING TECHNOLOGY WOULD BE A WONDERFUL HELP FOR THE ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING.

FOR EXAMPLE, BLIND CONSUMER USE OF ROBOT-LIKE OUTDOOR VIDEO-AUDIO CAMERAS FOR FRONT PORCH AND BACK PATIO SECURITY MONITORING.

SIMILARLY, BLIND CONSUMER USE OF ROBOT-LIKE FUTURE APPLE SIRI VOICE ASSISTANT FOR WEB SEARCHES EXACTLY AS SPOKEN.

ON A GRANDER SCALE COULD BE THE USE OF A MOBILE ROBOT IN A MUSEUM OR STORE FOR VIRTUAL VISIT FEEDBACK.

THIS LATTER SITUATION IS SIMILAR TO A VIDEO CHAT IF A USER IS PHYSICALLY UNABLE TO PERSONALLY WALK THE EXHIBITS OR AISLES.

EXTENDING THE CAPABILITIES OF PHYSICALLY IMPAIRED CONSUMERS IS THE BUSINESS OF ROBOTS FOR HUMANITY.

FURTHER, A FUTURE RESOURCE FOR THIS EXPECTED ROBOT USAGE COULD BE THE AGING DISABILITY SKILLS GATEWAY.

HAVING A PEER REVIEWED LIST OF HOW-TO TECHNIQUES COULD BE A VALUABLE REFERENCE FOR CREATING THE ROBOT TASKS MENU.
