ABSTRACT

Robotics is a branch of engineering that involves the conception, design, manufacture and operation of robots. There is currently a strong consensus in the knowledge world of an emerging robotic society in which almost all activities of human sphere are being automated for seamless control and management by robots. These vary from caring for the sick, driving a car, making love to securing people?s lives among others. However, in order to allow for a common understanding of robotics and help evaluate the impact of robotic science to knowledge society, there is a need to exhaustively investigate the implications of robotic science to the knowledge-based society. In this paper, an exploratory review of robotics and their implications to the knowledge-based society in the areas of health, security and entertainment are discussed. The features and architecture of some existing robots in the aforementioned areas are also presented. The paper was concluded by discussing ethical issues and negative effects of robotic science to the society.
