Commentary by Stephen Downes

"In the next decade," according to this article, "we will share our offices, hospitals, schools, battlefields, nursing homes, and homes with a new breed of companion. A robot renaissance is underway. After decades of hype, false starts, and few successes, smart machines are finally ready for prime time. As part of its 2010 research, IFTF's Technology Horizons program has created the Robot Renaissance: the Future of Human-Machine Interaction Map to explore this new robotic future." The seven major advances are:
- robot armies, scientists: the robot workforce
- interface and interactivity; robot as media
- interoperability; robot cars, sensors
- humans teach robots; robots teach humans
- robot mimicry; robot fetishism
- robots as friends, companions, associates
- swarming, peer review, intelligent robots
