- What is your full name?
Can I see your ID?
Where are you from?
Do you work or study?
- Are you interested in robots? Why?
No, I’m not really keen on robots because I’m kind of a low-tech person. Also, a robot is a luxury technological product that I have never been able to afford, so I don’t feel like I want to know much about them.
- Is it good to have a robot at home?
If I had a lot of money, I’d like to have a robot in my home. As I’m always occupied with my work, I need a robot to help me do chores and prepare meals whenever I come home at night. That’d be great!
- Would you want to take a car where a robot is the driver?
No, I wouldn’t want a robot to drive my car. It would be too dangerous and risky for me to take a drive with a robot. Because a robot is programmed by humans, I don’t think that it can handle road incidents quickly and efficiently enough to ensure safety.
- Will robots replace human beings in the workplace completely?
Well, I have to admit that robots play an important part in our modern life. However, they will never completely replace the roles of humans at work as they are incapable of feeling emotions and thinking deeply like humans. For example, in a conference, people have to discuss problems in great detail before giving solutions and making decisions, but robots lack the capacity to respond to all questions instantly and effectively.
