Personally, I am not sure that I would welcome them at all.... but the dazzling stuff in this video can be taken in a bit of a disturbing way. Robotic faculties are going to be so much more advanced than our natural ones. We better make sure that these robots are not designed for evil purposes.
In other news, the US DOD (Department of Defense) is investing in .... you guessed it!! robots. For good purposes only, no doubt.
I'm betting the future ends up being more Philip K Dick than Terminator. Like he imagines in one of his essays: "Someday a human being, perhaps named Fred White, may shoot a robot named Pete Something-or-Other, which has come out of a General Electric factory, and to his surprise see it weep and bleed. And the dying robot may shoot back and, to its surprise, see a whisp of grey smoke arise from the electric pump that it supposed was Mr. White's beating heart. It would be a rather great moment of truth for both of them."
