Scientists Develop New Concept to Empower Robot and Human

Researchers at the University of Hertfordshire in the UK have developed a concept called Empowerment. As per the scientists, this concept will help robots to shield and serve humans, while keeping themselves safe. The scientists have also stated that with the help of this new concept the robots and humans can work together.

While keeping the rising trend of technology in mind, the scientists have created this new concept. They stated that Robots are becoming more common in our homes and workplaces. In future, many robots will have to interact with humans in erratic situations. For instance, self-driven cars need to keep their occupants safe, while protecting the car from damage. Robots caring for the elderly will need to adapt to complex situations and respond to their owners' needs.

It’s been noticed that, the concept of "intelligent" machines running rampage and turning on their human creators is not new. In 1942, science fiction writer Isaac Asimov proposed his three laws of robotics, which govern how robots should interact with humans.
