The Advent of Machines

Humans will destroy humans. There is no need for any other external force or a mode of destruction.

One day a notification appeared on my phone from Tech Crunch about TC Sessions : Robotics. Intrigued, I watched a few videos and was amazed by the whole concept. Immediately, I opened my laptop, typed the word ‘robotics’ on google and hit search. I was bombarded with an intimidating 27,30,00,000 results which led me into spending weeks browsing the topic. Below is a brief of what I learnt from it –

Have you watched the movie terminator? Have you ever thought it could be based on something that would happen in the future? Well, if you didn’t, then it is about time you did because the future is almost here. The kind of development every country is coming up with regards to machinery is tremendous. One of the main developments is involving the concept of robotics in everyday life. It is a haven for tech geeks. As a student of business, I have zero knowledge about machinery. But I can see that every company, every industry and every sector is amazed by robots and hence, are keen to involve the same in their activities. To give you an example, the bank that I work in; Deutsche Bank AG, recently had a convention in Singapore with a couple of other top investment banks where they discussed about the involvement and the uses of robots in our business. It could decrease the number of employees and do more than what humans can do with no complaint. They would never tire and can give you double the result.

I would like to thank the author for sending me a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
This is the second book in the series 'yellow cottage mystery'. This book can be termed as a 'stand alone' but some elements will be understood only after reading the first book.
