Machines will, sooner or later, have higher calculation power than humans, which in principle also could make them smarter as we are. What do such smart and powerful machines mean for society, for work, for our added value as human beings? Can we have feelings for robots? Can robots have feelings for us? And what do we have to do to prevent things going out of hand? In any case we cannot deny the fact that we will be joined by thinking machines. Carlo van de Weijer gives examples of the impact of robotics for industry, mobility, health and other segments and tries to retrieve some lessons from examples in the real world that can make you prepare for the world still to come.
