Change is one constant in life. My mother was born in the 1920s. The only form of entertainment was the radio, books, or stories a family member might tell about their day or something from the past. Automobiles were not common as they are today. Electricity changed our world forever. There are so many other inventions made available through the marvel of electricity. It is my opinion that electricity is the single greatest invention in history. Think of the things you use every day. Most run off of electricity. The internal combustion engine is possible because of the electrical system that starts it and keeps it running, as an example.
Televisions are in almost every home. It developed over time. They started out as black and white, but it was television. Programming improved as color made its debut. Picture quality got better too, along with television shows. Today there are so many channels to watch over a fiberoptic network with speeds at 1,000 Mbps. Images on a LED screen are so clear the people look like they’re in the room with you.
By the mid-80s personal computers became available. Quantum leaps in computing technology have expanded our horizons in so many fields. We are on the brink of self-driving cars. Solid-state batteries are about to hit the market. Robotics have been around for decades in industry. Homes have more automated features than every before. This is only the beginning.
In Triangulum: Battle for Earth, Emma and her team build the first artificial intelligent robot, known as RAI. That idea develops RAI into what I see is a natural development of robotics. RAIs develop their own programming language exceeding binary code. In Triangulum: Earth on Fire, RAI takes the leading role to stop global war. They also play an important role in cooking, cleaning, security, and communications.
Today there are autonomous vacuum cleaners, floor mops, and lawnmowers. Intelligent homes unlock doors, turn on lights, set the temperature in your house and many other tasks. There are many other things, I feel, will drive the demand for an intelligent robot in your home. All the jobs we don’t want to do around the house, no problem with an intelligent robot to do them. The one I envision will be an amazing chef as well. At some point in the future, I see them as a first responder living in your home. If something were to happen to you, they will be able to provide emergency medical assistance while contacting 911, if it is necessary.
No one can know what the future holds, but in the Triangulum series I see a bright spot for autonomous robots playing a part in our daily lives. It’s like a pet that never pees on your floor or leaves unwanted presents in your backyard you have to clean up several times a week.
