VISIONS OF THE FUTURE
Starts Monday 5 November 2007
In this new three-part series, leading theoretical
physicist and futurist Dr Michio Kaku explores the cutting
edge science of today, tomorrow, and beyond. He argues
that humankind is at a turning point in history. In this
century, we are going to make the historic transition from
the 'Age of Discovery' to the 'Age of Mastery', a period
in which we will move from being passive observers of
nature to its active choreographers. This will give us not
only unparalleled possibilities but also great
Episode 1. THE INTELLIGENCE REVOLUTION
Monday 5 November 2007 9pm-10pm; rpt 12.35am-1.35am; 3.05am-4.05am (signed); Wednesday 7 November 8pm-9pm
In the opening instalment, Kaku explains how artificial intelligence will revolutionise homes, workplaces and lifestyles, and how virtual worlds will become so realistic that they will rival the physical world. Robots with human-level intelligence may finally become a reality, and in the ultimate stage of mastery, we'll even be able to merge our minds with machine intelligence.
For the first time on television, see how a severely
depressed patient can be turned into a happy person at the
push of a button - all thanks to the cross-pollination of
neuroscience and artificial intelligence.
I have put a video online about "Dynamically stepping over large obstacles by the humanoid robot HRP-2" which I participated during my research stay in JRL-AIST- Tsukuba, Japan

Honda has a site with 90-second TV advertisements featuring ASIMO. The ads depict ASIMO in a museum setting, engaging with a range of exhibits and everyday objects to demonstrate the robot’s human qualities and advanced technology. It closes with the thought: ‘More forwards please’ – which represents Honda’s continual push for technological innovation. http://www.honda.co.uk /asimo/
