Rise of the Robots
Science Documentary hosted by Craig Sechler, published by PBS broadcasted as part of PBS Nova series in 2016 – English narration
Machines are everywhere. They run our factory assembly lines and make our coffee. But robots-machines with human-like capabilities-have long been the stuff of science fiction. Until now.
Fueled by an ambitious DARPA challenge, the race is on to design a robot that can replace humans in disaster relief situations. Follow the robots-and the engineers that program them-as they strive to make their way out of the lab and into the real world. But how capable are they, really? How close are we to a future where humanoid robots are part of our everyday lives? And what are the implications of a future with robots that can do a human’s job? NOVA investigates the cutting-edge technologies that are advancing robotics as never before…and the enormous challenges that the robots still face.
