    Some science fiction writers envisioned a world overrun with robots by now. Well, thats hardly the case, unless youre talking about specialized areas of industry, including robots that have helped with the safety and overall effectiveness in demolition projects.

    For more than three decades, robotic equipment increasingly has been used in demolition and construction projects around the globe. There has been no need for a man vs. machine contest of superiority. Nor has there been fear of a robot rampage as in the science fiction film, I, Robot. Rather, people and machines work together as humans operate remote controlled machines in cutting, breaking, crushing and other demolition tasks.

    While the popular image of demolition is the implosion of buildings with explosives, this is hardly what happens in the vast majority of all demolition projects. The National Demolition Association reports implosions account for less than 1 percent of all demolition work.

    Demolition mostly involves the step-by-step destruction of an entire building or partial structure in often hazardous conditions, whether the wrecking ball or robotic demolition equipment is used.

    Demolition practices today are not only quicker but safer and more cost-effective, according to the National Demolition Association, which represents more than 1,000 U.S. and Canadian companies that offer standard demolition services as well as a full range of demolition-related services and products.

    In 2008, BBC reporter Steven McKenzie explained how a small army of robots was deployed in the clean-up of a Scottish nuclear complex. He said like WALL-E, the star of the Pixar animated film set in a waste-covered Earth of the future, the machines in Scotland were tackling manmade waste.

    The real-life robots have been working in highly radioactive areas of Dounreay in Caithness in the Highlands, he said.

    A spokesperson for the project said: “Using remote tools such as the Brokk 180 can complete some physical decommissioning tasks more quickly than human workers, and without exposing them to the hazards. The Brokk was used in smashing down walls. For a person to do that they would have to wear an airline suit and a sledge hammer.”

    Benefits of using robotic demolition machines include:

    Remote Controlled: Safer to operate
    Electric Power: No Fumes
    Compact Size: Accessibility to tight spaces
    Light weight: Easy on floors
    Multiple tools: Always jobs for machines

    In June of 2009, Construction News Portal reported R. Baker & Son All Industrial Services Inc., a specialized demolition contractor, completed an eight-phase, highly technical, demolition and environmental remediation project at Kings County Hospital located in Brooklyn, N.Y.

    Demolition crews utilized various hand tools to accomplish the demolition as well as specialized demolition equipment which included skid steers with demolition hammer and bucket attachments and Brokk 90 hydraulic breakers, Construction News Portal said.

    Domestic robots could easily become part of our future landscape. As technology improves and people are more pressed for time, it’s really no surprise. In a January 2012 Persuadable Research survey, 67{33b542d16a70a5a056dee8d20e17743c100027e983221326a7d1663d6e197c6f} indicated they would feel safe and secure with robots doing various tasks in their homes and furthermore, 70{33b542d16a70a5a056dee8d20e17743c100027e983221326a7d1663d6e197c6f} would personalize their robots by naming them. Placing a name upon a robot gives one the sense that robots could become part of the family, in a way, perhaps similar to pets, but with an entirely different function.

    Among those who would be willing to buy a robot, nearly half, 43{33b542d16a70a5a056dee8d20e17743c100027e983221326a7d1663d6e197c6f} prefer that their robot be able to take initiative and suggest actions. It seems that people foresee robots as domestic helpers, but also as personal assistants. Imagine, if you will, a robot that takes commands by simply talking to it. It would learn from past tasks and even offer ideas or better ways to do things. If robots had emotions, 37{33b542d16a70a5a056dee8d20e17743c100027e983221326a7d1663d6e197c6f} of respondents think they might even be able to make friends with them.

    What would the perfect robot look and sound like? Panelists felt that the robot should not sound too young or too old and the voice should not be too masculine or too feminine, but it should definitely be more humanlike rather than synthesized. It should also look more human than machine and be more roundish than square. Additionally people seemed to prefer a more colorful robot as well as one that could have a more personal design. Lastly, a sense of humor wouldn’t hurt!

    It appears that many perceive robots as a possibility and a natural extension of existing smart technology. It is easy to admit that, from the survey results, one could imagine a cadre of robots in fun Apple colors, much like iPods – except much bigger and definitely more expensive. So, what would you name your robot?

    These robots would tidy up our homes and workplaces cheerfully. Panelists envision them being able to handle nearly any household task from cleaning windows, 45{33b542d16a70a5a056dee8d20e17743c100027e983221326a7d1663d6e197c6f}, to scrubbing toilets, 41{33b542d16a70a5a056dee8d20e17743c100027e983221326a7d1663d6e197c6f}. They are also being considered for moving heavy objects and providing security for the home.

    Before purchasing a Forex robot you should be very well aware of the various drawbacks and not simply get excited from the promises of becoming a millionaire overnight. The opportunity of profiting with Forex robots is definitely there but one must first be aware of the dangers involved to be knowledgeable and therefore make a better decision.

    Grid, Hedging, Pyramiding and Martingale

    Knowledge in technical analysis does not seem to stifle the forex robot designers.

    Indeed, there is more talk of hedging, matrix, pyramiding and martingale than about indicators.

    Hedging is the act of opening a short position when it is a long, in order to gain when the market will head in the wrong direction. It is expected that one of the two positions will close with a win. So we ended up keeping positions for weeks hoping they become winners.

    Matrices and grids are techniques that include open / close positions every 10, 20 or 50 pips. The danger is that when the market shifts a great deal, the robot must be fast enough to close or open all vulnerable positions.

    For example, I knew a robot that used a grid trading system. The idea was that we defined a grid order to pass all 20 pips.

    E.g. N is opened at a position of 1 lot.

    At n + 20 it is closed with a gain of 20. No problem. This is compounded if 20 is not met.

    If it drops below n, the position is reversed by opening a short position of 3 lots.

    If the level n – 20 is not reached and it returns over n, we bought six lots.

    If it drops below n or sells 12 lots, etc. each time the number of lots purchased or sold, double.

    Grid System Trading – Number of Lots

    We quickly reached 190 lots in all. As long as the spread is 1 pip, we already have 190 pips negative with the spread. If the spread is greater: Beware!

    Presuming the robot cannot close positions in during sudden market fluctuations, we can definitely see the dangers this involves!

    Pyramiding and average down accumulate position, either if we are winning or losing.

    Martingales are techniques similar to those of card games that consist of doubling or even tripling your positions when you do not win. In this way you can very quickly reach important global positions.

    Unfortunately vendors and robot designers will never share with you such information as their goal is to sell you their software and thus generate profit. Purchasing these kind of programs to trade on auto-pilot may sound very tempting, however one should be extremely careful in making the right choice and generate profits instead of losses.

    Previously General Motors said that they have no plans of changing their Robot ad and even insisted that they will air the same ad on the academy awards. But due to insistent public clamor for the automaker to change its ad, finally General Motors gave in.

    The automaker has agreed to modify its TV commercial which was aired last Sunday at the Super Bowl to put an end to the week long controversy surrounding the robot ad. The automaker will eliminate the bridge sequence since that is the part the mental health organizations have found offensive and alarming.

    Mental health organizations have bombarded General Motors with protests about the ad, saying that the ad depicts suicide. General Motors says all it wants is to display the companys grave commitment in maintaining quality on its products unfortunately the ad ended as trivializing suicide.

    It should be noted that GM was not the only one with an ad that received negative feedbacks. The Snicker Bar commercial of the candy maker Mars, Inc. had to scrap their ad and related web videos since gay rights organizations called it homophobic. But unlike General Motors, Mars Inc. took less than a day before deciding to deep-six its ad while GM has consumed five days to decide on the issue. According to GMs spokesman John M. McDonald, the issue being raised was a serious one, from a group of credible people and this is exactly what encouraged the company to modify the ad.

    So why did it takes long for GM to decide? It should be noted that more than 93 million people saw the ad last Sunday which was considered to be one of the biggest TV audiences in US history but only a relatively small number of people have complained about the robot commercial of GM. This fact has lead the automaker to keep a firm stand not to change their ads, GM spokeswoman told USA Today that the automaker has no plans to change the ads since it has received more than a handful of complaints but not a tsunami. Plus let us not forget the fact that the robot commercial has cause the automaker millions of dollars which makes it understandable why General Motors have to consider all the odds before it decides to finally modify its commercial. To a company that is experiencing financial difficulties, revising a million dollar worth of project is not that easy since it will entail again for some additional cost.

    General Motors Corporation is still the worlds largest automaker and has been the numero uno in the global industry sales for the past 76 years. GM was founded in the year 1908. Its global headquarters are located in Detroit. General Motors make use of the acronym GM to refer to the company itself and its line of auto products like the popular GM performance chip which are designed to enhance the performance of vehicles.

    What is website indexability? In a nutshell, indexability means the efficiency in how Internet search engine robots, spiders, crawlers, worms, and/or ants are able to read the web pages for a website and determine their rank in the list of search results that they return to a user. One way to do this is with the addition of a robots.txt file. Add the file to the root of the website to instruct an SEO (Search Engine Optimization) robot which pages to index. This will make sure that only the most relevant pages are indexed.

    Not all SEO robots will read a robots.txt file. Most malware crawlers will unfortunately ignore it as their purpose is malicious. They do not care if they are only allowed access to certain pages. The main purpose of the robots.txt file is to tell friendly SEO crawlers which pages they should ignore while indexing the site. This is helpful in the case of an infinite domain space. An example of an infinite domain namespace might be one where users upload files into an online document repository. These documents are considered to be media and not content so the webmaster should add a line to the robots.txt file to disallow access to the root URL for this document repository. The more results returned from a site with the same URL will often degrade the result ranking of a page.

    Test pages are another example of parts of a website that should be passed over. Also any content not meant for visitors. This could include web pages that have been added to the site in order to calibrate the appearance of the pages but are not ready to be shared. Pages that can’t be accessed directly by a user conducting a search undermines the credibility of the results and will thus begin to degrade the page ranking.

    In order to increase website indexability, the robots.txt file can also be used to provide instructions to specific SEO robots. Different algorithms are used by the search engines to index web pages. For example, one set of pages may need to be restricted for one search engine while allowing access to another. Lines can be added to the robots.txt file that gives specific instructions by including the name of certain search engines such as Google, Yahoo!, and Bing. This could actually be very important in determining the rank of your pages for specific keywords, depending on the rules and methods used by the search agent.

    The purpose of a robots.txt file is to convey important information to visiting SEO robots or crawlers about how they should proceed in indexing a website. The main purpose of the file is to keep the lesser pages from being indexed to the more pertinent pages are. Another important function is to communicate instructions to specific robots on how to proceed while indexing the website. This insures that the most important pages are indexed, which will hopefully increase page rankings.

    With the Internet growing at an astounding rate, it is getting more and more difficult to get a high page ranking. There are hundreds of dynamics that help engines decide how to rank a page. Knowing how some of these dynamics work, will definitely help you increase your sites exposure on the Internet. One of the dynamics that you need to take into consideration is “meta robots”. Believe it or not, but you can actually control the robots that crawl your sites in a number of ways, which will undoubtedly help your ranking.

    Meta robots are unique to each page on a website, and are used by search engines to direct crawlers on a single page. For the most part you want as many crawlers as possible to access your site; however, there are certain instances where you may not want pages or specific areas of your site being crawled. Robot tags will allow you to keep control of what is being scanned by search engines, and preventing them from returning search query results, while still being able to transfer their link value to other pages.

    Why would you want to block a page from being scanned, you’re wondering? Here are a few reasons: for security, you may want to protect private information such as contact information, and addresses. Block spam bots from trying to collect sensitive information. You can also block duplicate content, which is a serious SEO problem, and user-generated content, that can not be vouched for. An example of user-generated content would be comments and reviews posted on your site or blog from regular users.

    For the most part, you will use the default values of meta name=”robots” content=”index, follow”, which is the same thing as having no meta robots tag at all. For duplicate pages you will want to use meta name=”robots” content=”noindex, follow”, basically you do not want the duplicate page indexed, but you want the links on your page to hold value. With user-generated content, meta name=”robots” content=”index, nofollow”, would be appropriate. The page will still be indexed, but the links will hold no value. When trying to protect private information, meta name=”robots” content=”noindex, nofollow”, would be used to block everything.

    To get started you will need to create a robots.txt file, that lists all your pages you want to use the meta robot tag for. Than insert the appropriate tags mentioned above on each page. Every spider or bot that enters your site should read the robot.txt file which will tell them what not to index and where not to go on your website.

    About five years ago, I wrote a very interesting article suggesting that the Google self-driving car would eventually be competing in NASCAR against human drivers. I laughed sometime later when on April 1 Google put out a joke video on YouTube stating that they were going to enter NASCAR and had sponsorship for their self-driving vehicle. I’m glad they liked my joke, and I’m sure everyone thought that was funny being as it was April Fool’s Day, even if a large number of people probably figured it out. Okay so let’s talk shall we?

    You see, there was a very interesting article in the Popular Science issue of October 2013. The article was titled “Traffic Patterns – Robots Can Already Outright Humans – Now Everyone Needs to Get out of Their Way,” by Adam Fisher. In the article they took us into this probable future. Perhaps you’ve seen the Google car driving through a parking structure in Silicon Valley dodging concrete barriers, driving at 35 miles an hour, the video I watched had a person in the right seat along for the ride who was scared out of their wits, not knowing if the car could negotiate at that speed. The car was driving faster than a human could probably negotiate, and it was doing it all with sensors and high speed processing.

    It makes sense that a car would be able to do this, because the United States Navy has Jets which take off from an aircraft carrier and readjust the elevator pitch 15 times per second, faster than any human pilot could do it and that prevents buffeting on takeoff. The United States Navy now has UAV drones which can land on the ship totally autonomously, as well as do aerial refueling. What I’m saying is we have the technology to build race cars which don’t make mistakes, sense the other cars around them, could prevent crashes, and make the best decisions based on a decision matrix artificially intelligent program with all sorts of parameters.

    Can a human being drive that precisely for a 500 lap race? Most likely not. Further, if these computer systems can outperform racecar drivers, surely they can outperform a mom with three kids in the car distracting her all the way to the grocery store, or an old man driving home from the doctor, or someone who’s had too much to drink from a local watering hole, or eventually a taxicab driver, limo driver, bus driver, and well, you are starting to get the point.

    I hope you enjoy driving your car now, because in the future you may not be allowed to. Further, once our cars start flying, as in personal flying craft, I’m pretty sure the authorities aren’t going to want you to crash into anyone else while you’re up there flying around. The robots are going to be in the driver seat, and you’ll just be along for the ride. Please consider all this and think on it.
