- Features like analyzing brain activities and body language to predict human interactions and behaviors were discussed in the session.
- Collaborative efforts of Dubai Future Foundation’s Dubai Future Labs and the Japan Science and Technology Agency are preparing the world for the digital future.
Imagine a Robotic Twins to do all your work for you. It might sound like science fiction, but it could become a reality someday. A recent session at Dubai’s Museum of the Future explored this possibility, looking at the intersection of robotics, reality, and the metaverse.
Robotic Twins Technological Possibility
The ‘Moonshot Goal 1 program aims to free humans from the limitations of their bodies, brains, space, and time by 2050, which was the focus of the lecture session. Experts from prominent Japanese universities discussed how the program could lead to robots becoming digital twins of humans, able to carry out tasks and work more accurately and quickly.
The session was a collaboration between the Dubai Future Foundation’s Dubai Future Labs and the Japan Science and Technology Agency. It aimed to prepare societies for digital futures, where virtual social activities could be the norm by 2050.
Session Insights at the Museum Of Future
In the session, Dr. Norihiro Hagita, a program director cum professor at Osaka University, exhibits various research projects emphasizing on creating cybernetic avatars to enable individuals to participate in developing their societies while considering the ethical, social, economic, environmental, and legal factors.
Promising technologies were also discussed, such as analyzing brain activities and body language to predict human interactions and behaviors, aiding the development of virtual reality.
The Moonshot Goal 1 program aims to help people use their abilities and experiences with others to promote joint innovation, according to Kouta Minamizawa, Project Manager and professor at Keio University.
While the idea of robotic twins doing our work might seem exciting. It raises questions about what it means to be human and the impact on employment. However, it’s clear that the future will involve a greater level of digital and real coexistence.Giving individuals more freedom to choose how they spend their time.
Khalifa Al Qama, the Director of Dubai Future Labs, emphasized the importance of collaborating with scientific, technology. Research institutions to promote research and development. He stated that such collaboration is crucial in anticipating future opportunities. Transforming innovative ideas into tangible solutions that can contribute to a better future for humanity.
Al Qama also mentioned that this event aligns with Dubai Future Foundation’s efforts. To identify significant opportunities and upcoming technological transformations. The event aims to exchange experiences, best practices. The knowledge on the most effective ways for societies to benefit from future technology.
So, are robotic twins the future of work? Only time will tell, but the Museum of the Future session certainly provided food for thought on what the future might hold. While the future of work is uncertain and constantly evolving. The possibility of robots playing a significant role in the workforce is worth exploring and considering.
