Robots in London: New exhibition explores world of robotics

Robotville will communicate the current state of play where everything is at when it comes to robot structures, robot abilities and robot appearances, claims Nick Hawkes, a lecturer in artificial intelligence and programming at the University of Birmingham. Some of Hawkess recent work will be on show at the exhibition he helped build Dora, a robot able to map an area and then, if in a home, for instance, locate and fetch familiar items. While Hawkes predicts that, within certain parameters, robots will become more and more useful, he concedes that cyborg bounty hunters are unlikely. I can imagine robots doing menial, automated tasks in prisons, hospitals, hotels places where there are a consistent set of requests, he says.
