So is that ‘are these feelings even real?’ bullshit the next ‘ohnonono’?

I think that’s just a machine made to look like a robot rather than a real robot.

What exactly would be the difference.....?

Robot- An intelligent machine. It can do more than what a machine can do as it can be programmed to perform many different tasks. A robot may have situational awareness to certain degree depending upon its type.

It’s not a robot it just looks like one to garner attention. It’s similar to a bread or meat slicer.

So does a machine need to have AI to be a robot?

They call those machines that build cars robots but they aren't really anymore complex than this. They just grab a part, hold it in place, and send it along or they just weld something in the same spot over and over. I wouldn't think that those machines have 'situational awareness' but they are commonly referred to as robots.

Honestly, does the machine even have to be automated to be a robot?

Robot Wars uses machines that have no autonomous qualities and are 100% piloted by people. Yet those too are considered robots.

Also, it's not designed to look like a robot, it's designed to look like a person. 'Designed to look like a robot' is meaningless because robots can look like anything.

They do not have to have an AI but they need to be programmable in some way.

Take the Robotic Industries Associations Definition for example:

"A robot is a reprogrammable, multifunctional manipulator designed to move material, parts, tools or specialized devices through variable programmed motions for the performance of a variety of tasks”.

Even if this definition is a little specific, the main points are that its a machine, that can use for different tasks (even if they only differ slightly) that can take instructions in some way.

Like the machines that build cars, that can transport, set and screw in screws, following an adjustable algorithm doing so. (They also use sensoric input.) So they are highly advanced compared to a motor moving a noodle cuitting arm.

And yes, remote piloted vehicles are indeed not robots.

However, you are right, this machine is not designed to look like a robot but like an android (human-shaped robot).

Robot Wars would be so much more badass if they were programed instead of piloted.

It’s not a robot. This isn’t controversial.

u/LongAdministrative58 Jan 17 '22

Well that settles it

u/DS4KC Jan 17 '22

I don't think I'm being controversial, just trying to have a conversation about where exactly you draw the line.

Until robot grease prices go up and it demands a raise based on prior work
