Kate Darling

Throughout history, humans have been exposed to the concept of robots as human-like machines which are frequently smarter and more powerful than they are. Many people now view robots as posing a threat to humans. The fear that robots might replace us in the workforce and gain more influence over our lives has grown as a result of recent developments in artificial intelligence. However, technology is still far from being able to completely replace the human brain or perform tasks that only humans are capable of. The future of robotics is more likely to resemble our interaction with animals, which has historically proven advantageous in a variety of ways. Like animals, robots may serve as both companions and tools. They can help us complete tasks and accomplish goals that would otherwise be impossible. As more robots enter our homes, we may face many ethical questions and problems, but by understanding our history with animals, we can find answers to these questions.

What's it about?

As artificial intelligence and robots remain a topic of debate, The New Breed presents a refreshing viewpoint. Rather than viewing robots as replacements for humans or threats, the author bases her argument on our longstanding relationship with autonomous animals, which have increased our productivity and helped us feel better.
