Throughout human history, we have always dreamed about - and been captivated by - the idea of creating machines that are like us. Recent advancements in hardware technologies such as improved sensors, batteries, actuators and 3D printing are allowing us to realise the dream of building human-like robots. Meanwhile, advancements in machine learning and AI are enabling the minds of such robots to become increasingly human-like. This talk will describe how machines that look, move, and think like us may soon emerge, and what the social, economic and ethical implications of these breakthroughs might be.
